Today In Quotes From Sanctimonious Jerks Who Don’t Get It: LeBron James

It wouldn’t have been far-fetched to think now that LeBron James and his weepy band of Miami Heat teammates have been ousted from the NBA Finals and were forced to stand idly by while the Dallas Mavericks celebrated their NBA title on the Heat’s home court that James may have sought out the moments afterward to show some humility, eat a little humble pie, if you will, regarding his ill-fated championship quest. But nope. Not at all. In  fact, James post game comments where he insinuated that everyone who rooted against him are miserable people who will continue to live miserable lives were simply further evidence that he just does not get it.  Not one bit.

LeBron’s arrogant and extremely alienating comments, via Reuters:

“Absolutely not,” James said when asked if it bothered him that so many people were rooting against him.

“At the end of the day, all the people that was rooting on me to fail, they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life that they had before they woke up today,” he said.

“They have the same personal problems they had today. I’m going to continue to live the way I want to live and continue to do the things that I want to do with me and my family and be happy with that.”

Douche. It’s these kinds of comments that only serve to further enlighten the fact to NBA fans that James doesn’t give a rip about anything other than himself. No matter what he does or says at any other time, James’ comments illustrate that he is the epitome of narcissism and will never be a winner in the eyes of the average person. But why should LeBron care what we think? After all, we’re just miserable people who will have to wake up to live the same crappy lives we had the day before. But hey, at least we’re not colossal failures whose shortcomings not only as a competitor but as a person as well weren’t played out on the world’s stage for all to see. Because that would totally suck and be profoundly humiliating. Right, LeBron?

    I don’t think what he said was wrong in anyway. People always talking like he is the bad guy but he’s not. He is a grown man and can make his own decisions and yes people talked about him but guess what it didn’t make their situations better. They are going to have the same lives that they always had and his life will go on was well. You can’t be mad because of a true statement life goes on and another season is just around the corner.

    It’s funny that people don’t really see what’s wrong with this. While he does not outwardly say it, Lebron is basically saying the only way to happiness is to not have problems and have money. Sure, we have problems, but why is that a concern for Lebron. He need to let go of the fact that people dislike him because of the un-classy way he left Cleveland. He also needs to realize that he still has not won a championship, so his big head should probably shrink a bit. Dear Lebron, we may have problems, but we still wake up with as many championship rings as you do.
