The “greatness” of Lebron James is an illusion. Sports media outlets have been slinging propaganda for years, brainwashing the general public into thinking he’s basketball’s Lord and Savior. However, if you fight your way through the media-spun web of lies regarding the so-called “King,” you’ll be able to see Lebron for what he truly is: a disrespectful, egotistical, overrated player who lacks the clutch gene.
Last night, he showed his true colors. At the end of the game, down one point with just 19 seconds left on the clock, Lebron stepped up to the charity stripe. To no one’s surprise, he bricked both free throws, ultimately locking up a loss for his team. But as has been the case throughout Lebron’s entire career, he was bailed out by his teammates. They grabbed the rebound, put up a shot, and set up an easy put-back dunk for Lebron.
Then, for the first time in his 16-year career, Lebron did something that made my jaw drop: he hung on the rim for about 15 minutes.

Now, I’m not kidding when I say this. Lebron should be suspended for pulling a stunt like this. It’s time for the NBA to start cracking down for the sake of the integrity of the game. If you’re going to miss important free throws and give a 20% effort on defense, you CANNOT galavant around like God’s gift to the game after you cherry-pick a game-winning bunny. It just can’t happen.
And yet Lebron will be praised. He will be looked at as the hero of the game, who’s basketball IQ led him to be in the right place at the right time. His athleticism will be compared to that of Bo Jackson, and his intelligence will be put on a pedestal with the likes of Plato, Aristotle, and Socrates. All because he missed his free throws.
So I ask you again…
I certainly won’t bow down to him. I won’t worship a false prophet. Besides, for a great “teammate” who “makes everyone around him better,“ he looks pretty damn focused on himself and his own image. But he’s been like that for his whole career, so does it really surprise you?
I’m tired of this diva prancing around without any consequences for his actions. If the NBA had any semblance of a backbone, it would suspend Lebron for disrespecting the players, referees, fans, and the game of basketball as a whole. What a disgrace.
