But I was told single mothers are destroying America.

I think it's great that 95% of all children raised in single parent households use that anger to become professional athletes.

To be fair, Lebron's dad never gave him a Hummer. I'd be bitter, too.

The only reason you are where you are is because you are 6'8" and basketball was your only way out. You made it. Others did not. It has nothing to do with your single parent household. It has nothing to do with your father abandoning you. Your unending desire to be wanted, praised, liked, and fawned over, though, does have everything to do with it.

Couldn't he have just tweeted it to Delonte West?

Please come back to Cleveland

As a bastard, I can empathize with El Brondo's sentiments.

Dear Dad, Thanks for the genes.

and his single mother set such a fine exmple for him herself, what with getting knocked up with him when she was 16 (for that sweet, sweet welfare money) and then later on by farking his teammate, causing unneeded stress, strife, and drama while he was in the middle of taking his hometown team on a championship run. you go girl!

What's it like to be an ignoramus?

1.  His dad didn't even have to name him Sue
2.  Would LeBron still be chillin with his kids if he had them at such a young age as his parents and the same income as his dad?
3.  What a jerk, his kids are now condemned to a life of mediocrity with daddy around paying attention.

If it's the motivation he needs to improve his game more power to him.

It should be noted that Jordan had the two parent household and white picket-fence life and look how he turned put. Different strokes for different folks.

Could have been a touching letter, but sounded more like chest thumping than encouraging to others in the same situation

So did Magic. My dad worked at the plant with Johnson's dad. His Mom worked for GM too.

So lets see. First Bill Russell, then Bob Ley, and now LeBron's long-lost father is gonna put him in his place? It's a "Shut-up LeBron" trifecta!

Reminds me a quote i saw on FB recently... "Pray for your exes, because they are who made you stronger".

When Poochie isn't around, all the other characters should be asking, "Where's Poochie?"

/LeBron needs to return to his home planet.  His people need him

Let's be fair now.  He could have also joined the NFL!

Or maybe it's because lebron spent a sizable portion of his life living with a youth coach that was kind enough to take him in and treat him right.  And it was the coach's son's friends who would eventually become lebron's closest friends, and would select a HS and all play there together. Would that have happened if lebron's dad was still there, but wasn't providing good support? Would he have felt the determination to succeed if life was different?

Would he have felt the urge to succeed like he did if his positive father figure was his actual father instead of a youth coach? I'm gonna go with yes.
