The story about Lebron James ducking the Magic and reporters after being ousted from the playoffs is days old now. Everyone’s had their say on the issue. Well, almost everyone. Now it’s our turn. Here’s the cliff’s notes verison, nobody gives a shit.
That’s right, Lebron didn’t shake hands or talk to reporters. Is that poor sportsmanship? You’re damned right. Will he do it again? Hell no he won’t. Was it that big of a deal? Not really.
The only reason this thing was news was because it was Lebron James. If Sideshow Bob Varejao doesn’t shake hands, no one says much of anything. It maybe makes a post on Deadspin and then it dies. Since it was Lebron everyone in America has to talk about it.
Here’s what really gets me though. Most everyone was getting down on Lebron saying that was a bad example, etc. etc. My question: would you rather your kid look up to a guy doing steroids, a guy who slaps his wife around, or that terrible piece of shit asshole who didn’t slap hands after a playoff game? Seriously, the media will never learn to let things like this go and thus you people are going to be stuck listening to us bitch about it. I hope you’re happy with that.
