What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
Who doesn’t know the internet is the “wild west” for anonymous slander and blatant nastiness? Who wouldn’t figure out that even a Joe Blow opening a Twitter account with a “come and get me” invitation to every blowhard vitriol dealer with a keyboard is simply asking for trouble. Add to that the summer-long LeBron fest we all had to live through and who could possibly be surprised that somebody out there might have said something terrible?
Apparently, LeBron James… or at least he wants us to believe that.
Among other things, he was called a fraud, a bitch, was told to lay his head under a moving car, not to mention getting at least one “n-bomb” dropped on his Twitter.
“I just want you guys to see it also,” James said. “To see what type of words that are said toward me and towards us as professional athletes. Everybody thinks it is a bed of roses and it’s not.”
That last sentence is why I need your help. I honestly can’t decide if LeBron is a moron for not knowing that opening the door to the internet commentary wasn’t going to result in line after line of sheer nastiness, or if he is a complete pansy for for playing the “look how hard it is to be a multi-millionaire pro athlete” card.
