LeBron Throws a Curveball



There's no doubt he's been a victim of racist media portrayal.

In an interview with CNN, LeBron James and his manager say they believe that race was a factor in the media’s criticism of him this summer.  Maybe it was.  However, it seems more likely LeBron still doesn’t understand that he acted poorly.  He quit on his team in the middle of the playoffs.  He ripped the hearts out of his fans on a nationally televised love fest.  He was perceived as the next Jordan, the next superstar (although that’s not something he asked for).  He betrayed many people on these accounts.  Now, whether the severity of his criticism was dependent upon race, that’s up for discussion.  What’s not debatable are his transgressions.
