Lebron James Blames His Bad Press On Racism

SportsIllustrated – LeBron James’ manager said he believes race played a factor in how the two-time reigning NBA MVP’s decision to join the Miami Heat was covered this summer. Continue Reading…

Lebron James denies this picture as racist but blames bad press on racism

Maverick Carter, Lebron James’ manager, says race “definitely played a role in some of the stuff coming out of the media.”

Then, after the Miami Heat’s practice today, Lebron James said “I think people are looking too far into it,” James said. “But at the same time, sometimes it does play a part in it. I’ve said what I had to say, and I’ll continue to move on.”

Even though Lebron James did raise $3 million dollars for the Boys & Girls Club of America with The Decision. The bad press has nothing to do with his skin color. 

Lebron turned his back on the city and state that created his career and dramatized it for all of us to see on T.V. He then chose to join two of the top 5 players in the league to create an evil empire like the NY Yankees.

Lebron never credited his ‘race’ for all the hype around him coming out of college. Lebron never credited his ‘race’ for the $100 million dollar endorsement deals. And Lebron never credited his ‘race’ for the unlimited amount of talent he has.

He even denied claims of his race factoring in his photo selection for the cover of Vogue Magazine.

“It wasn’t a situation we’re being rough or looking mean,” James told the Plain Dealer in Cleveland. “Just showing a little emotion. We had a few looks, and that was the best one we had … Everything my name is on is going to be criticized in a good way or bad way. Who cares what anyone says?” 

So why is Lebron James pulling the race card now??

Because he has finally realized he f*cked up. The Miami Heat are the new villains of the NBA. And Lebron just isn’t comfortable with being the bad guy.

First, Albert Haynwesworth hides behind slavery, and now Lebron wants to hide behind his skin color…who’s next??
