The LeBron James Promise

Magic Johnson and Micheal Wilbon ESPN / NBA analysts pointed out how LeBron James current and 4 time MVP is seen less in television commercials than Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Kevin Durant or even his Miami Heat teammate Dwayne Wade. This besides the fact that LeBron James has major sponsors, endorsements and a lucrative contract with Miami Heat.

In this same commentary Magic and Wilbon pointed out how after LeBron won a ring last season, he played in the Summer Olympics, went to Hakeem “The Dream” Olajuwon’s camp in Houston to work on his game. A committed father and humanitarian.

The point Magic and the rest of the ESPN / NBA analysts were trying to make is that LeBron should be making more money and be seen more on television, typical. These talking heads forgot that when LeBron promised to win multiple rings when he signed with the Miami Heat they laughed at time. Obliviously LeBron did not forget.

So in this era of reality television, big bling, big money and big talk it is refreshing to see a man who’s word is bond.

  1. He is the better man, and more hero than the other names who put him down for not taking the almighty dollar.

    1. Not so sure. If the almighty dollar didn’t mean so much to Lebron James he would be winning championships in Cleveland instead of Miami. He was never one to shy away from the spotlight, hence “The Decision” . Loyalty to his former teammates and community would have been truly heroic.

  2. Just wanted to say thanks for the follow on my Keeping A-Breast blog.

    1. Thank you

  3. Thanks for following my blog. I enjoyed your commentary on LeBron, even though I am more a Football guy. I saw something a couple of years ago about his spiritual background; his and Wades. You take good pictures, would be interested in more of your feelings of the areas you are photographing. Looks as if you are taking the “Unconventional” route through the world.

    1. Thank you

  4. Reblogged this on Juju Films.

  5. Or, the point they were making is that people HATE Lebron. He s embraced the bad guy role and that’s fine- no one hypes that he talked about winning more then one title on the decision but six??!!?? And on a TV show rather then telling Cleveland firs like a class act???? I, not saying he’s a bad guy but that was a bad ‘decision’.
