Is anyone else sick and tired of LeBron James?
I am sick of this guy. he is everywhere, and everyone is calling him the best thing ever and his team sucks ass and its only been a hand ful of games. I was sick of hearing about him when he was in high school, now everyone is on the James train and who really cares? so are you a James fan? I would be happy if I didnt hear his name for a freakin week.

Get used to it. You're going to be hearing him for about the next 15 years. Sorry.

I would have loved to see him play when they came to portland... only to see what all the fuss is about. I heard he's good but he jumps incredibly high, for tips and stuff. Don't know... that came from a hardcore basketball player/fan so... I don't know if her opinion was biased. Anyhow... It's insane how much money he has... think if I write to him he'll give me some money for college? I'll send a picture along too

I don't like the fact that he's making an incredible amount of money w/o having done anything for it *yet* I say yet, because he has the potential to be a superstar in the league, if he works hard.
No one deserve $90million - especially an 18 year old. That being said - you have to respect (or at least recognize) the kid's game. He's not a pure scorer, but has a knack for running the floor and his passes are incredible. IF he works hard and continues to play hard, he'll be great...i just hope he's not another Harold Miner (baby Jordan, anyone?). That being said...i think he's going to be around for a while.
and my vote goes to lebron over carmelo...long run. 'Melo may score more now...but in the long run, i think James becomes more of an impact player

either way i hate the kid, wish him the worst of luck. carmelo anthonys def better.

That's real nice, Game. WTF?
Anyway, I was born and grew up in Akron, and continure to be a Cleveland sports fan. So, no. I am not sick of it.
Having said that, the hype is ridiculous. Even though he has already far surpassed local expectations, the blatant hero-worship wears thin. Its sad how the media places any athlete on a pedestal, especially one who has proven nothing. He will never be able to match the wild expectations. He is not a god. He's just an incredibly talented athlete. Another thing is that I hear he is a good and level-headed kid. My cousin went to St.V-M, and graduated a year ahead of Lebron. Said Lebron was never out partying, didn't do stupid shit, or hang out with the "wrong crowd," and that he seemed like a genuinely nice kid. His mother is a different story . . .
I don't know if he is the "next Mike," but he has already been the best player on the floor in the four games I've watched. I am tired of the blaring hype machine though. I say we just let them play, and measure their greatness after they retire.
