NBA champion and overall great guy LeBron James is finally – FINALLY – a good person. It took 7 years of worthless effort, hard work and a few public faux pas, but James finally turned a corner, overhauled his entire personality, accepted we were all right about him, and did what we wanted him to do: become a good person.
Coincidentally, James won his first NBA title last week, right before his transition into “good guyhood.”
While I have never met LeBron, or anyone who has met him,* but his body language the past few years was that of a cowardly, heartless, winningless character. Putting it in zombie movie cliche terms, he was the soldier who who runs a small colony but his hubris gets in the way and the zombies eat him while the heroes sneak away. Or in inner city family drama cliche terms, he’s the older brother who’s great but addicted to crack and lets the younger brother down, but might help the younger brother succeed (hence his fourth quarter failures.)**
*My cousin saw him in a mall once, he thinks.
**This also works for boxing movie cliche.
But now James language is of someone who did exactly what I always thought he should. I am glad he did. To be honest, I cannot believe I am not getting a ring. I probably should as a team consultant or something. This happened because of me. I am important.
Teammate and fellow champ Chris Bosh, sadly, is still a GIF-able doushe.
In a surprising twist, recent events in Kevin Durant’s life make him seem so… unlikable. Maybe he has no heart? Flawed character? Only time and Skip Bayless will tell.
