NBA  > General NBA  > CAN YOU BELIEVE LeBaby - PULLING OUT THE RACE CARD
September 30, 2010, 03:06 PM
People are pissed at you and others think you are "LeBaby" cuz you left the team that was set up to help YOU win a championship - not move to another team that is set up for ANOTHER superstar to win a championship. You went from headliner to supporting cast - period.

LeBaby saying race is the issue or has anything to do with it, for me is the last straw in validating how unaware and unintelligent he is.

The Vegas party pictures days and then again weeks after "The Decision" - and "The Decision" itself then trying to blame ESPN for pushing him to do it.

You are a grown man own up to your not being loved anymore for your choices!

It is obvious you do not know what to do with no longer being "The Chosen One" but you made these choices. So next it will be race when a white ref makes a bad call?

It is so sad when people are actually judged by their actions and then go back to race as a defense. For the millions of people who have felt racism and suffered because of it, let me be the first to applogize for this blatant devaluing of what you have trully suffered.

So long as he was a Cleveland Cavalier he would always say the right thing to the camera. He always made us feel proud. But there was many storys of him that us fans chose to ignore. Just little things how he would treat the common man. We would look the other way when we hear these things howhe treats people with disrespect. He really is the king of his court. He surrounds himself with a court of yes men who don't dare challenge him.

He could a left with dignity but his 'decision' was the start of his true colors and now he shoves his big foot into his bigger mouth with his CNN interveiw. He talksabout helping the kids and that is comendable. His heart is the right place but his head is up his you know what.

One more thing. Miami is the perfect place for him and his lackeys. That city is the most superficial city in the country. It's the HEY LOOK AT ME city and LBJ is the HEY LOOK AT ME NBA player. So hes going to play on super duper duper premium is he? I hope the rest of the league plays on rocket fuel against the king of nobody.

Well, I thought he was a bit of a turd before. I think he's a schmuck. Just my level of insults. But after reading more into it, seeing how it actually panned out and how he's handling it, he's an idiot.

And now he does not get why people are upset .. still?

This is actually very worriesome for sports, is there this much of a disconect between reality and the world that money, fame and ego create in sports?

Atleast TO gets he is crazy (just ask Chad)
Atleast Charles B. laughs at the jokes
Atleast Tiger said he was sorry and "laid" low
Atleast a million other examples of how out of touch and out this world he is - this is a bad round of press for the NBA going into a player contract year. This and melo, etc I am not even watching this year.

Think I will do what must of us should probably do anyway and go volunteer this NBA season.

I wonder if the people who are jumping on Lebron saw the interview. The lady asked do you think race played a factor.. all he said was at times I think it does. How is that playing the race card on the Decision issue.

He came out in a CNN interview a few days ago and said the hate he is recieving now, he thinks is racism based.

LeBron is being asked questions that he is not giving politically correct answers to for sure...

He is getting to be like TO in regards to how "frank" he is in interviews..

As a Heat fan, I am just ready for some basketball because the wins that will follow will shut a lot of people up.

As a person, I wish he would just shut his mouth and stop answering these questions.

I laughed when I saw this. Is he seriously making this argument?

I for one am pretty much done with basketball, it is an exciting sport to watch but the one on one aspect and the ego of most of its current stars has just turned me off.

LeBaby is the last straw - it is about wins sure, but where is the sport going?

The Jailblazer era of basketball was peanuts to this - that was just kids not knowing any better - and they faced punishment for their actions - fines, lesser contracts, legal issues, etc

This era, with the egos, where is the punishment for their actions? If we all keep watching this unfold and when will Stern get it?

They have been over taken by the NFL and will never catch them even with the concussion issue because the NFL hands down punishments know even if you are not found guilty, and no matter who you are. Technically the NFL has a much harder thing to manage, they have paid killers on some roasters - who are given free reign to go out and try to kill someone!
