LeFavre James

We now have a winner for Greatest Ego of All Time.

There's only one choice. There will always be only one choice.

LeFavre James.

LeFavre is apparently holding a primetime news conference on ESPN on Thursday night. We'll put aside for a moment that a news organization is allowing itself to be pimped out by LeFavre.

We'll instead focus on the grand, gigantic, Jupiter-sized ego of James. This is one of the most ridiculous things ever done by a professional athlete and that's saying something.

I'm on record stating it's a good thing for James and the other free agents to make as much money as possible. But this is going too far.

James isn't in high school announcing he's going to Florida State. He's a professional athlete, a grown man, and this reeks of horrid ego and childish insecurities.

James is out of control. He will lose the support of a great many people for this and across the NBA players will laugh at him. They'll shake their heads and laugh at him.

All this for a guy who is ringless.

Good luck, LeFavre.

Should we get you some makeup for your primetime appearance?

  OK so what if its his idea?  Whats wrong with it?  Lebron is a man and thats it.  No different from any other man.  He puts on his pants the same way you and I do.  Why hate the fact that he is in a position to make money?  Is he taking money away from you?  The only reason he makes all that ridiculous money is because he has a skill set that people pay money for.  Just like a doctor, lawyer or politician he is using his skills and getting paid for it.  If his profession was not in demand Lebron would not make money like he does.  I would bet the same people hyperventilating over this so called announcement have spent more money supporting the NBA than donating to worthwhile charities.  So what if the NBA becomes a mockery?  I guess no one will show up to the games right?  Wrong.  People will always find a way to give away their money to things that dont make them a red cent.  Ask them to invest in a business or further education and they are suddenly on a budget.

What the Heck?

What the Heck Freeman?  How about a shoutout to me from July 2nd for terming LBJ "LeFavre" before you cop it for yourself?

July 2, 2010 8:30 am Somehow, and stay with me here, comparing LeFavre and DWake to reality shows of the past decade does not make me want to become involved and more. 

You are right though, Bird did have an ego and maybe if here was in his prime I would care, but still I think it is difficult for many and myself to see life-changing paychecks falling like rain (or at least being talked about like that) when the States still have 10% unemployment and a stagnant retail sector. 

Remember that athletes are great but they are entertainers.  Entertainers via playing, not promoting.  At least that is what I'm looking for.

Or how about totally flipping on your opinion since that same July 1 article to Which I had the above reaction?  Whats the deal man?  Have you become Skip Bayless where YOU do not even believe the arguments you make, you just do it for readership/attention? 

Summer of LeBron getting too much attention? Think again

without EVERYBODY, us included, ESPN and Lebron would not have any reason to do any of this... IF nobody cared and nobody watched THEN none of this would be happening

so do me a favor, and if you are all upset about this so much, go look in the mirror and say WE HAVE CREATED A MONSTER

or just watch the news and find something that really matters to be upset about
have a nice day :)

He could easily donate the money out of his monstrous paychecks he will likely get from any teams he signs with.  All proceeds go to the Boys&Girls Club of America right?  I say he should give 10% of his salary to children in need.  Maybe he can give him 10% of his ego.

move the NBA to the Cartoon Network

Wow the NBA has sunk lower than I ever imagined!  I thank Iverson for ushering the Era of Ego and lame-a** street ball that is the current NBA, but James is undisputed King.  King of Dumbfcukery.  Has Vince McMahon purchased the league and turned it into XNBA?  This stoopid theater is as lame as Hulk Hogan switching from "good guy team" to "bad guy team" in the WWF (or whatever the current "pro" wresting soap opera is called these days).  King James is King Clown.  His PR move is sound, however.  People will tune in to see if the new villian fails, while his fans will still tune in to watch their favorite sports star.  So yes, epic win for the NBA, epic fail for the sport.

Favre never did anything remotely like this Drank boy. Don't bring him into this ass clowns moment. Haven't they fired you yet for pushing illegal drugs?

lebron is being his own source and announcing the news on his own. 
hes inviting ESPN to air the broadcast what are they supposed to say no?

A "one hour announcement". Check your F'ing ego at the door Lebron. I used to like Lebron. Now....... can't stand him. Hope he fails miserably in the future. Guess what else? There are a whole lot of people saying the same thing I am. Covering his ego by donating money to the boys and girls club. This guy is worth over 100 million already. He could give the boys and girls club whatever he wants without doing a one hour ego production. The guys true colors are shining through and I am pissed that I was duped all these years thinking he was humble.

There has only been a few people/teams ive ever hated in sports.  And Brett Favre and LeFavre James are two of them.  Im so tired of the media (espn) all over their jocks!  At least Brett Favre has a superbowl title.  But LeFavre James dont have jack squat but 2 MVPs and 2 best records in the regular season.  Oh yeah and 2 early round exits in the last 2 years.    Here's to another early round exit in 2011
