04:57 PM ET 08.05 | Miami Heat superstar LeBron James has had enough of the spotlight, at least, that's what he posted to his Facebook account last night. In fairness to LeBron, he does have a point. This is a guy who can't take a morning jog in his neighborhood. This is a guy who can't go rent a movie at a RedBox. This is a guy who can't go to dinner with his family, outside of making it somewhat of a spectacle. Things we take for granted, LeBron isn't able to do. It's almost as if he's a caged animal, in the most odd sense.

Don't worry, we don't freaking care a whole lot about you.

The first step James needs to do is stop crying over your foul that he gets or doesn't get called his way.

Once he's done that. We can move on to his flopping at a drop of a hat.

To whom much is given much is expected. With that said It has never been an athlete as scrutinized and under the microscope as him (some of it self inflicted) and Im sure it can become nerve wrecking but once again if you wanted it when it was all good except it when its bad also.

He just wants the attention right now because we haven't been talking about him lately...

Stop Acting Like A Diva, Bro.

Am I supposed to feel sorry for him? I don't doubt that the spotlight comes with pressure, but... I don't care. Yeah, LBJ can't just go for a quiet morning jog. But he also will never, ever have to worry about whether his kids have enough to eat or whether their school is safe enough. He'll never have to worry about his company downsizing and getting laid off. Cry me a friggin' river.

Awww, I feel so sorry for him. NOT!! Try Netflix.

There are a lot of non-athletes who won't have to worry about those things, either.

Poor guy! He has too much spotlight again on him! Time to whine to get more spotlight!
