Recently, Lebron James told CNN that racism plays a factor in the recent amount of criticism regarding his move from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Miami Heat. His comments created controversy on the internet, with a multitude of responses agreeing and disagreeing with him. ESPN analyst Jalen Rose is one among those that agree with Lebron James comments, even adding that those residents in the same luxury suite are those complaining simply because he is breaking the “good, ole boy system.” Now, in response to this comment by Lebron, I do feel that racism plays a minimum factor in the heat that he is receiving. Of course, as a high caliber celebrity and one of the top three basketball players in the NBA, Lebron James is instantly a prime target for media critics. In addition, his actions leading up to his move to the Miami Heat was not necessarily, for better terms, a smart one. I am not saying that his move to Miami was particularly a bad idea; however, he had to have an hour show to tell the fans that. How does racism play a role in stupidity? Furthermore, Lebron James is doing nothing but using racism, a term that has been said loosely lately, as an excuse to get more media attention. Everyone knows that Lebron is an attention God and demands to have media coverage of him all the time. Looking back at his decision to join the Miami Heat, Lebron used ESPN as a tool to create controversy between the teams that he is joining. Nonetheless, Lebron’s actions are what separate him and racism in the public bashing that the media and fans are giving him. Lebron James is mostly critiqued on his recent failure as a leader among the children for the way he portrays himself, arrogant and cocky. The other attacks is from the Cleveland fans that he abandoned by leaving and joining the Miami Heat. Therefore, there is minimum racism in his claim. I believe that Lebron James should spend more time preparing for his recent championship run instead of saying these ridiculous arguments about how racism is now the reason why the fans hate him. Fans will not support ever decision that Lebron makes and making false accusations is one of those decisions that will not roll over well with the media or the NBA family. Instead of making excuses to find fault in the world of Lebron, maybe he should focus on the fans who do love him and his game.
