Lebron James is a girl. He can't possibly have anything swinging. If the Dallas Mares beat the Miami Heat Lebron should wrap the towel around his backside and start switching when he walks.


Sure Lebron and the Heat lost to the Dallas Mares, but what everyone should remember is that his haters had to "wake up the next day still miserable and with the same lives as before while Lebron woke up w/o a championship but still rich, famous and a member of the Miami Heat." I was in Cleveland several days last week and saw firsthand the hate of Lebron that lingers there. I began to get scared to even mention his name. Duan, I went to Canton to see the bust of the19 Steelers in the Hall of Fame. I can't believe the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers have more than we do. Chicago has 26 and the Packers 19. I bought me a terrible towel, a Steeler football and Starter Jacket with the Six Championships listed on the back. Can't wait to wear it next year as we collect number 7. Didn't realize those Clevelander hated the Steelers as much as they hate Lebron. I was scared to wear my jacket although it still cool there at nights and some days. Lebron is a sick dude because he didn't realize such a dumb statement would make him even more enemies.


Lebron James continues to be treated like a "RUN AWAY SLAVE" in the words of Jesse Jackson. His "haters" will have to get over it. James went pro out of high school. He does not have the mental sophistication or political savvy to deal with his "haters". This young, African-American talent needs a Walt to teach him the ropes. (smile -yet serious). One must chose their battles and everything you think can not be voiced!
