LeBron vs. Much Bigger Dudes

13 Oct

LeBron seems to think that he would make an amazing football player. You know, because of high school.

LeBron’s perfect throwing mechanics on display.

“If I wasn’t playing basketball, I believe I could try out for an NFL team and make it as a receiver,” James said. “What I’m doing right now will keep my mind off of playing football, but if something ever turned sour in the NBA, I think I’d take a shot at the NFL.”

Sure.  LeBron got beat to the basket and dunked on by a Chinese kid a few months ago, for fuck’s sake (see previous post for video).

Not a Chinese kid:

Slightly scarier than Dirk Nowitzki…

These quotes were taken from LeBron’s third season in the NBA when there was little to no chance of anything turning sour with the NBA (because of LeBron’s awesomeness, mostly). Now that next season is in serious jeopardy (and LeBron isn’t so awesome), he may have the chance to right the biggest wrong in his life and his ONLY regret:

“The only thing I regret in my life is not playing football my senior year”

How could he pass up such an amazing opportunity?

UPDATE: The lockout is over. LeBron won’t get his chance to play wide receiver in the NFL.  Dang.

LeBron Humiliated by Little Kid

4 Oct

Why in the world does Nike keep forcing LeBron to play basketball with kids? Remember that confiscated Nike video where some college kid dunked on LeBron? That has absolutely nothing on this:

So, this little kid *cleanly* steals the ball from LeBron, beats him down the court, and then dunks on him. And then LeBron runs back down the court and turns the ball over. This is truly amazing. Not quite sure how this happened, but it did.

This is why I pay to own ihatelebronjames.com and get off my ass to post every now and then. THIS IS WHY.

Wow.

UPDATE:

LeBron gets his confidence back by dunking over a toddler and then power-yelling:

Nobody can stop LeBron!  Not little kids, not medium-sized kids!  RAAAAAAAAR!

Epic Fail

4 Oct

LeBron blew it.  Hilariously.  What else is there to say?  Well…maybe this:

Thanks, DeShawn, you are a legendary LeBron hater.

As usual, there’s more. Did LeBron quietly slink away after losing big like a proper loser that just lost something? *OR* did he run his arrogant mouth and say something idiotic? Predictably, the latter. This time, he decided to take a parting shot at his critics by directly insulting every NBA fan not lucky enough to enjoy a millionaire’s life of luxury:

“All the people that were rooting for me to fail… at the end of the day, tomorrow they have to wake up and have the same life that (they had) before they woke up today,” James said. “They got the same personal problems they had today. And I’m going to continue to live the way I want to live and continue to do the things I want to do.”

And so LeBron’s pattern of screwing up and then committing a massive PR gaffe immediately afterward continues…
