I won’t talk about the NBA or anything related to it much but now I will occasionally chime in on 421 and talk about the most glorious and wonderful human being that roams this earth today. No, I’m not talking about Ryan Gosling or Chris Pratt. I’m referring to the media’s golden boy LeBron James.
Ever since he came out of high school it was LeBron James this, LeBron James that. NBA season means it’s time to talk about LeBron 78% of the time, the Warriors 21% of the time and the other 1% goes to why Draymond Green got another technical foul or overhyping Ben Simmons. The MLB postseason could be going on and for failing ESPN that’s not good enough to talk about over their beloved LeBron James.
So, why do I wrote this article? Honestly, because I can’t stand LeBron and how much coverage he gets, but also because him going to L.A. was the best move he’s ever made.
When LeBron played for Cleveland and Miami, it was nonstop coverage on the east coast, from the morning till after his games. And I know exactly why he gets all that attention. He brings in views, kids love him and he’s the greatest player of all time. Yes, I know. Even though my dislike for him is strong, I believe if not now but once he’s retired, he’ll be considered the greatest basketball player of all time. “Don’t hate his game, hate the player”, that’s what they say right? Anyways, the east coast basically revolved around him. Now that he’s on the west coast all of his games won’t start until 10 pm eastern time. And if I’m up at 10 o’clock watching a game on T.V., it will not be a bum of a Laker game. I will be doing homework or watching some late night MACtion or The Office…again.
Like I already said, LeBron is the greatest player in the game right now and not to mention his work in his community is amazing as well. That’s how every professional athlete should be. Ones who give back and if anyone should be doing it, it should be LeBron. So don’t get me wrong, LeBron is a great player and you gotta respect his work (when he’s not complaining to referees), but it’s nice to see a lot more time from these major sports networks being put into other teams like the Pacers for example who are an exciting bunch to watch, play team basketball, and deserve more national T.V. slots.
