Did Lebron leave a $50 on the bedroom dresser?

Posted on 07/09/2010 6:47:38 PM PDT by Dawebman

LEBRON JAMES PLAYED ESPN LIKE A NEW YORK PIMP ARRANGING A DATE WITH THEIR PRIZE WHORE!

The TV Dog-and-Pony Show that ESPN did with Lebron James' announcement of which NBA franchise would pay him the most money - or sell the most of their soul and future, had all the sleaze of a pimp and his John negotiating which NBA franchise would be his next whore.

ESPN long ago flushed what little remaining thread of journalistic integrity it may have once had.

Just like the Muslim Communist Clown now occupying the White House, the only question that remains is, "HOW LOW WILL THEY GO?"

If the long overdue closing of several ESPN sports bars in only the most major markets isn't an indication of Obama-like decisions at the top of ESPN, I don't know what is.

Maybe that's why Odumba doesn't have time to address the problems with unemployment, the economy and terrorism? HE'S TOO BUSY TELLING ESPN WHAT TO DO!

Is this an example of what we’re supposed to be worrying about?

I didn’t watch it, but I assume it was pretentious.

That said, I heard the ‘event’ raised $5.0 million for charity, so was it really all that bad?

Remember, this was an ESPN marketing decision more than a LeBron decision. And really, was it anymore trashy than a lot of very popular reality shows?

Thank goodness for the NFL network. I don’t have to suffer with the ESPN idiots to get my NFL fix.

You obviously don’t live in Cleveland. It was 24 hours around the dial yesterday, today and probably tomorrow. Superseded Rush on our local radio station, otherwise I wouldn’t care.

I know, it makes me sick, too. We should be concentrating on Lindsay Lohan

Why don’t you stop watching sports or paying attention to sports and start paying attention to the government that robs you of a minimum of 40% of every dollar you earn?

If I wanted to invent something that would distract people while I robbed them, it would be sports.

Exactly

for those on the outside I know we seem like mindless idiots.

I have followed LeBron since he was in Jr. High .. attended his games & have been a fan from day one.

I still am & will be. Of course I want my Cavaliers to whoop his butt now when Miami & Cleveland compete! LOL

I wish him well. It is called Free Agency for a reason. He may have made a bad choice from Cleveland’s perspective but a good choice from his. Time will tell all the way around.

We have a great group of players remaining & now with LBJ gone the cream will rise to the top & they will produce.

I hope LBJ has another great year & maybe another MVP.. and I HOPE he finally marries Savannah! 2 kids are enough w/o the paper!

You show a great deal more class and dignity than the Cavs owner did. His online tantrum actually made me sympathize with LeBron again.

I never even thought of "ESPN" and "Journalistic integrity" in the same day. Can't say they disappointed me, I had zero expectations of them to begin with.

Le Bron could break his foot tomorrow and his career would be over. Ya gotta make the dough when you can...... He who hesitates is lost. A bird in hand is worth two in the bush.

A person would have thought Cleveland was stricken with a massive Swine Flu outbreak. It is just a game. A game that people played as children and these bozos are getting paid millions to do now.
And in ten years, with craeful planning, LeBron will be doing MTV reality shows and working at a car wash because he blew all his cash.

LeBron apparently isn’t stupid. He chose to live and play in a state that doesn’t have an income tax. ;o)
