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?
