The most upsetting part of this ridiculous night came at 9:18 p.m., when the cameras first showed LeBron
Jamessitting across from his chosen interviewer, Jim Gray, and in the background were rows of … children?
I wanted to throw up. Bad enough that we adults have to watch the decline of grace to where a guy who calls himself The King gets a prime-time TV special to announce where he’ll play
basketball(an hour-long special at that!), but the fact that an audience of children was put around him, effectively being told, “Aren’t you lucky, kids, to be part of this? This is what MATTERS in life!” Lord, send me a bucket.
Look. I had to watch this. It’s my job to comment on big sports stories, and LeBron James switching teams to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami is a big sports story whether I like the process or not. But why anyone else would waste time is beyond me.
EXACTLY... This is craziness and I'm very glad I didn't watch. Just sorry so many others did. What it says about our values is precisely what Mitch pointed out. A small thing being made into a very big thing. Hopefully Mitch wasn't the only one put off by the whole LeBron show. If they were then that would be something good coming from all this.
Just my thoughts. What do you think?
