The “Controversial Sports Personalities” of 2010 …..

December 16, 2010 |

1) Lebron James – Give this young man credit, he seized an evening of ultimate self-serving and narcissism, that would cause Vince McMahon to blush. “The Decision” was beyond selfish, it was a bizarrely, bad idea from a public perception point of view.

July 08, 2010 - Greenwich, CONNECTICUT, United States - epa02241974 Handout photo from ESPN showing LaBron James (L), NBA's reigning two-time MVP, as he ends months of speculation and announces 08 July 2010 on ESPN 'The Decision' in Greenwich, Connecticut, USA, that he will go to the Miami Heat where he will play basketball next 2010-11 season. James said his decision was based on the fact that he wanted to play with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

But, it garnered Lebron an awful lot of attention. Thus, he must be recognized on several lists. As the years pass by, I think his antics and orchestrated announcement of signing with the Miami Heat will become a staple for how athletes should NOT announce plans and decisions.

I harbor no contempt for where he goes in his career, but there was a more humble and modest way of doing it. Lebron is bigger than Disney World, but on a single night, in June, he looked like a clown at the circus …..

HAVE A GREAT THURSDAY …. and, as always, I will look forward to your remarks and thoughts !!!!
