I was starting to feel bad for LeBron until he dropped this jewel at the post-game press conference.
“All the people that were rooting me on to fail, at the end of the day they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life they had before,” he said. “They have the same personal problems they had today. I’m going to continue to live the way I want to live and continue to do the things that I want with me and my family and be happy with that.” In short, “I’m rich, you’re not.”
I used to say that LeBron just doesn’t get it. He doesn’t understand what the fans want from him. Now I just think that he doesn’t want to get it. He doesn’t care. He is happy being rich and famous and that’s enough for him.
I may not be on the same level as LeBron when it comes to fame and fortune but there is one thing that we do have in common, neither one of us has an NBA championship ring.
