See that message above? Yes, this is not the Lebron James we are use to seeing but it's the one we need to get use to, and even myself, who is NOT the biggest Lebron fan, likes where this is going. I will tell you why I say LEBRON WILL BE THE NEXT KOBE.
This upcoming NBA season will be the ONLY season that Lebron James starts where he is NOT the fan favorite. Multiple years of high school domination on top of 7 years of top notch plays and stats in Cleveland, this guy was in a position to be the next Brett Favre, meaning he could have the league at his disposal if he wanted to by the time he retired.
Outside of that once incident where he didn't shake any hands after the playoff loss to the Magic, Lebron has seemed like he could do no wrong, until The Decision aired. After that poorly thought of plan to announced where he was ''taken his talents to South Beach," Lebron stepped into a realm which he has never seen before.
Day after day, week after week, everyone had something to say about Lebron, but this time it wasn't all positive. Mostly negative. Barkley chimed in, Magic had a word to say, even the greatest, Michael Jordan gave his opinion. Also, with the new technology of today, Twitter has given fans one on once access to LeBron and you can bet that over 60% of his replies are negative.
Yesterday LeBron spoke out. Which is something I have been waiting for this guy to do for some time but with him trying to be Mr. Lovable, he never wanted to ruin his image, but this is what you have to do sometimes. This is one of the reasons Kobe Bryant is the most hated in the NBA. Outside of the whining of course, people don't like Kobe's 'fuck whatchu heard, I'm here to WIN' attitude but that's how you have to be.
With saying that, I say this, LeBron will win multiple championships (i assume). He will be disliked by many because of some of the decisions he has chosen. After winning a few championships, many people will say 'He couldn't win without Dwayne Wade.' Sounds familiar? Yes, he will be the next Kobe Bryant. As a Kobe fan, I can't wait to see how the LeBron fans feel when guys are hating him for being the best player in the league, kinda like they do my boy KOBE now.
