NBA Star Getting Blasted
All Over The Internet
One Great Season
LeBron James is getting killed in the bloggersphere Wednesday. Here's what some are saying on Twitter about the basketball star, who plans to announce his NBA future in a one-hour special on ESPN Thursday night at 9 p.m:
@ramzyn: "My sources say destroying a fanatical sports town can be done safely IF the detonator does it in plain sight while donating to charity."
ALSO: Complete World Cup Coverage
@realfreemancbs: "'Dear Cleveland: You guys okay out there? Anything I can do to help?' Signed, Art Modell."
@Justin_Stangel: "LeBron Special Prediction: 5 Seconds after LeBron James announces he's not signing w/ Knicks, Cablevision drops ESPN."
@AndyResnik: "I bet ESPN is currently updating its Cleveland sports heartbreak montage."
@TheSportsHernia: "FIFA to LeBron: Please fuck yourself"
@HowardKurtz: "LeBron overload: Not since Babe Ruth left Boston has there been this kinda hype over an athlete. And one with no championship ring."
@THE_DANNY_FAIRY: "Are any downtown CLE hotels offering a Looter Discount for tomorrow night?"
@SethDavisHoops: "Gosh @KingJames you really think a TV special is enough? Maybe 3D closed circuit show? Write it in fireworks? Pathetic need for attention."
@wsjcouch: "Can someone send Mick Jagger to LeBron's announcement?"
@NunesMagician: "If LeBron does go to the Knicks, no way Andy Rautins will stand anywhere near him during the chalk toss. Not after the hair gel sets. "
@MikeVacc: "If you're the Nets, wanting LeBron and settling for David Lee is like wanting Eddie Vedder and settling for David Lee Roth."
@countingcrows: "God, I am SOOOOO tired of all the media frenzy. We're proud to announce LeBron James has decided to play with Counting Crows."
@dpshow: "I would love to see Favre announce his retirement at 8:55pm on Thursday night."
@AndyHutchins: "Essential difference between Durant and LeBron: You root for KD because of KD, and LeBron in spite of LeBron."
@FisolaNYDN: "Too bad LeBron didn't put this much thought and energy into Game 5 against Boston."
@SI_ChrisBallard: "Funny that LeBron, who is so caught up with managing his public image, just got a lesson on how to do it from Durant, who is not."
@buzzbissinger: "Do we literally need a minute by minute update to The Decision as LeBron team calls it? Of course we don't. A sickening farce. PR orgie fest."
@fitch87: "@jemelehill I think lebron should take the top three teams and give them roses like the bachelor."
@aimclemson: "LeBron has the right to do what he wants to with his future, but this has become a circus, plain and simple. What's wrong w/simple presser?"
@PDcavsinsider: "Suddenly it is clear to me. LeBron has changed. A new website. Starting Twitter. This announcement. This isn't the guy I know."
@sharapovasthigh: "And if even if he wins 6 now, everybody will say it's because of him, Wade, & Bosh together, not him leading a team to the titles."
