I don't get the angst over LeBron and the media attention he's receiving.
Well, he's always received a lot of attention, but suddenly, the ESPN show tonight, in which he will announce where he will play next year, has become too much for many people. I've seen people complain on Facebook, Twitter and today's Detroit Free Press.
Hmmmm. Ignore it.
The NBA is my least favorite of the four major pro sports leagues, but I admit a bit of interest in where King James, who is now on Twitter, ends up. It's a story that will impact the league and it features a little bit of drama. I'm not going to watch the ESPN special, but I will pay attention and perhaps check out one of the ESPNs to see where he goes.
It's just that there are plenty of other things to complain about, express displeasure with, or with which to find symptoms of our society's imminent doom. The world's biggest sports network focusing on the changing (or staying) of the one of the industry's biggest stars is not that annoying, troubling or discouraging.
Oh, and for my guess. I think the best story would be either him staying in Cleveland or going to the LA Clippers. I'm afraid, though, that he's going to Miami.
Here's the results of our poll, asking readers where they thought he'd end up:
Clippers - 11%
Cavs - 41%
Knicks - 11%
Nets - 5%
Bulls - 15%
Heat - 18%
