I cant understand the lovefest with LeBron James. Lakers went out in the first round, but ESPN continues to fit him in every conversation. They cant even give Giannis his props without making some kind of comparison. Its even front page news when he sits on the front row with his tequila. I saw an IG post highlighting Bronnys HS game...he had 20 pts. When Giannis had back to back 40 pt games, ESPN accidently put LeBron in the list of the only players to do the same feat. Do people really love this man that much? Are millions of people really dying to hear about him as much as possible? Do sports networks put up a mandate to mention that man as much as they can? Are they trying to create narratives that dont really exist? What gives?
> When Giannis had back to back 40 pt games, ESPN accidently put LeBron in the list of the only players to do the same feat But he did in 2016.
He’s the most popular athlete in the county no shit they’re gonna talk about him as much as possible
Idk the most popular athlete in my county is Bryant “Big Country” Reeves
But is he popular because the media forces him on everybody?
No hes popular because hes been a freak athlete since he was in high school and has lived up to every expectation set upon him
He’s popular because he’s one of the best players ever and top players in any league get all the publicity
Hes popular because people are interested in him.
> I can’t understand the lovefest with LeBron James Lol really? You can’t?
Were you wondering what LeBron James was tweeting when Giannis went for 50 and 14 with 5 block and 89% from the FT line en route to win his first NBA Finals?
Not me personally, but I’m sure millions of people across the world did because he’s one of the most popular athletes in the history of civilization
LeBron brings clicks
It’s almost like the Lakers make them more money
> Are millions of people really dying to hear about him as much as possible? unfortunately, yes
Thats what I was wondering. I understand his greatness, but I think its way too much.
Hate it or love it, LeBron is the defacto face of the NBA and he still drives ratings and clicks at the end of the day.
Hes the GOAT. Its like NFL broadcasts talking about Brady all the time.
MJ is still the GOAT but yeah Lebron is the current most famous/best player/2nd best all time so hes going to get talked about
Because him and Lakers make em all money.
Dudes a ridiculous player, generally well respected man outside of the sport, and always doing big things. He can get his.
Hes arguably the GOAT, and has an enormous following. LeBron has 80 million instagram followers Wisconsin has 6 million people.
