This thread is going to be filled with rage.  I can feel it.

Not a big basketball fan, but that looked kinda cool.  Had I been in that guy's spot, though, I would probably have already turned my attention elsewhere and ended up with a basketball to the face on national TV.

You know, I just can't hate on LeBron James. Seems like an OK dude, and he busts his ass at the Olympics.

Every time I see him in the news lately, he's doing something pretty damn cool/nice.

I've noticed that too.  Hugging the guy that made the half court shot, this thing, Make A Wish stuff.  I think he's able to relax more now that he's got the first ring.

LeBron is alright by me.  Bosh is a douche and Wade flops too damn much but LeBron, he's alright.

Not a James fan but that was cool and I would love to see more gestures like this in the NBA. It is one of the few sports where the players and fans are close enough to have some fun.

I took my son to see the Harlem Globetrotters and it was so cool after the game they all come back out and spend time signing autographs for the kids.  the NBA should make this mandatory for Sat/Sun games.

Luckily for him, Springfield is farther away from Cleveland than Canton is.

/But it's nice he's working to get his egocentrism under control.

I came into that article expecting a "LeBron James was a dick to a fan" bit, but was pleasantly surprised to see a "LeBron James being cool with a fan" bit - in mid-game, no less. Would love to see more like that, and less prima-donna bullshiat, from athletes in general.

Is it just me or has his likeability factor gone up some?

How awesome to have person toss a ball to you!!! I'm calling everyone I know.

That was cute. Throw my hat in with the "pleasantly surprised" crowd.

all pro athletes in all sports should spend some time signing for the kids but they won't. professional athletes are mostly overpaid pampered dooshbags that need to be biatch slapped back into reality. being paid princely sums to play children's games is almost criminal.

How many of these "autographs for the kids" wind up on ebay or some other site for sale the next day? I agree, many professional athletes are just that. But mandating autographs is simply fueling the ebays/other sites full of sports products for sale.

In other news, games invented to be played by college students (who tend to be adults) are apparently "children's games".

/Sure, most professional sports players in the big three are overpaid, but to call those sports "children's games" just makes you sound like an ass.

John Buck 41: Is it just me or has his likeability factor gone up some?


I know what you mean.  I loved watching him lose the title a couple years back, but he won with dignity and he seems like an athlete that understands that he is an entertainer, not actually saving the world from evil with his talents.

I sort of wish I was a Heat fan.

was aHeat fan when Mourning was there. Really admired him. Undersized (for an NBA center) warrior.

Well, they were never intended to be focused entirely on how much money could be generated.  They're supposed to be games, and only games.  Not an industry.

Yeah, but that ship sailed decades ago. Which is why I hate the "pro athletes shouldn't be as much as they are" argument. It's not the athletes' fault that their profession happens to generate so much revenue.

Why do you hate the free market?

They are paid what it bears, and quite possibly due to the government interference in assisting owners with stadium building and control they may even be underpaid relative to their work.

Like kids never played with balls prior to such games being 'invented with the purpose of college athletes in mind' ?

I think he learned his lesson about being douche when he left Cleveland.

He's a great entertainer for a league that's more entertainment than sport.
 
2013-02-10 10:57:11 PM
Great, first he's physically assaulting fans, and now he's throwing things at them. Class act my ass.

Check out the old boy back-slapping the fan and pumping his fist and generally trying to horn in on the good vibes.
