Welcome back to yet another rant on how much I hate LeBron James and think that he is an absolute MORON! LeBron was asked who his favorite NFL player is right now and he answered Carson Wentz. This shouldn’t be a problem right? Wrong. LeBron is openly a “die hard” Dallas Cowboys fan. For those of you who don’t know, the Eagles and Cowboys are NFC East rivals, yet James’ favorite player is his rival’s most important player.
Here’s exactly what he said:
“My favorite player right now is Carson Wentz,” James said Monday morning. “I told my brother that early in the season that I just love the way he plays the game. The way that he’s able to get to progressions throughout the course of a three-step drop or a five-step drop, and if everything breaks down, his ability to run, get outside the pocket, either make passes or get yards with his feet. “He’s a very smart player from the outside looking in, obviously, and they’ve got a really good team. I’m a Cowboys fan, I’m a Browns fan, but I’m a fan of sports and I know sports.”
This is like a Red Sox fan being A-Rod’s biggest fan or a Patriots fan liking Peyton Manning more than Tom Brady. LeBron is breaking the unwritten rule of “no matter how good your rival is, you have to hate them.” This is a rule widely known throughout sports and is one of the many reasons I hate LeBron myself. So if LeBron is a fan of sports or knows sports, then he should know this rule.
Okay obviously he knows sports, but he knows it from an elite athlete’s point of view. Any average fan would NEVER say their rival’s best player was their favorite player in the league. LeBron is only saying this because he wants to say “I loved Wentz since the beginning.” If Wentz wasn’t an MVP candidate, then I’m more than positive that James would have zero clue who he is. Here he is just hopping on the Wentz bandwagon.
So LeBron, go back to making cringe worthy Instagram videos and subtweeting your teammates. Actually, just never speak again. Just stay silent forever, it can only help you. Stay quiet for me, because every time your idiot mouth says something, it drive me crazy and I need to write a rant about how much of an idiot you are.
