i was just on espn's website and i check out the nba part of it like i always do and they have something on there about how he is moving his basketball camp from akron to san diego. correct me if im wrong, but is that national coverage worthy? i would think it might be in the akron beacon, but espn? now when i saw this, i had to go right into the comment areas because i knew there were gonna be come funny repliues to the articles and their of course were and ill post a couple of those along with the article, so you can see how ridiculous this is. correct me if im wrong and im not even a kobe fan, but isnt he the finals mvp? then why dont we hear more about him instead of lebron and ridiculous things like this? i swear espn= home of favre, lebron, and arod. so what do you guys think?

BREAKING NEWS: LeBron James takes a *******. The toilet is now hyped as the best toilet in world history. Full coverage all about it on SportsCenter at 6pm/5pm central.

King's Academy. Say it with me people... King's Academy. He is the king of arrogance. The LBJ MVP t-shirt was pretty funny too. He is nothing more than another Brittney Spears or Back Street Boys. Proof if you hype it enough, people will literally buy anything. Never has someone who has done so little in the way of accomplishments received so much. He is right up there with Barak Obama, time will expose these frauds.

theassassin32 (6/22/2009 at 3:59 PM) Report Violation What can he possibly teach at his basketball camp, how to be 6'8 260 and get to the rim? It's like Shaq hosting a Freethrow Fundamentals Camp.
-----------

Day 1 - "Making sure your pre-game pose is front page material"
Day 2 - "Losing like a pro: shaking hands is for b*tches"
Day 3 - "Being #1 - making sure people say you have a great team; and making sure only your teammates gets thrown under the boss when you lose"
Day 4 - Free throw day... NAH we gonna teach you how to spend your time on commercials!
Day 5 - How to be called the GOAT without ever winning a ring

it is out of control. you know what the problem is? the nba and espn want lebron no matter what to be the main focus! he could of got knocked in the 1st rd and somehow they coulda said well he played an underdog detroit and they do have rasheed,rip,tayshaun etc...broo its crazy you cant keep them quiet no matter what. It should be kobe 24 7 right now and the lakers just like when boston beat us down they were showing us getting wacked all day to piss all laker fans off and make kobe look worse. Lebron James has been in the league since 2003...its almost 2010 and he has no rings and still isnt a proven shooter...ok he can score! but tmac,vince carter,allen iverson,penny hardaway,etc all could and didnt do much to win...so jump off lebron your making him look worse

lebron = most overated athlete of all time.
this doesnt mean he isnt a great atheleat its just that they make it seem like he is the best who ever existed and it kind of devalues him if you ask me. because as far as im concerned he isnt even the best in his draft.

dwane wade 1 ring
lebron james 0 rings.

and dwane wade did not win that championchip because of shaq. wade was clearly the reason the heat wont that ring. yet he doesnt get talked about in the same breath with lebron. go figure.

and also

kobe 4 rings
lebron 0

yet lebron is known to have surpassed kobe and is better ? well then in that case id rather have the two worst players because they are getting the job done with championships where the greatest of all time cant seem to get to the finals. and when he does he gets swept by the spurs.
its a shame. aint it.

We're talking about it, aren't we? People read the article, that's the point. You read it. If it really upsets you, organize a boycott of ESPN.com.

Well he's only one of biggest stars in the league. Kobe and Lebron both get alot of media coverage its not a big deal. Kobe had his own movie, they had their own commercials together, Lebron had that handshake b******* on ESPN, Kobe had a whole day of ESPN coverage after he won the championship, D-Wade has those T-Mobile commercials, it's not like he's the only one who gets alot of coverage that's what happens when your one of the biggest stars in the league. People make excuses like these just to have more reasons to hate.

thankyou!!!!!!!!! lebron has no titles that punk! and he may neverr get them unless he gets his head together and stops complaining about help. Dwayne Wade has 1 even...goshhhh im tired of Lebron James... I want him somehow to get the finals so kobe can rip him in half just like we did everytime we played clev...kobe was sick and still schooled him. Lebron goes i wont go to the dunk contest...he thinks hes god....kobe will get you eventually bro and when he does what will david stern say then? nothing! no excuses when he outplays and wacks you =D you gotta be hungry lebron! stomach growling? have u seen his 4 championship rings? the 4 u do not have! hahahaa

no need to hate on him. it's the media's fault.

you know why he always says kobe is the best because if he makes kobe angry kobe will abuse him everytime they see eachother in a game and humiliate him!

The NBA pays ESPN, so they say whatever Stern wants...news or not. Lebron is the favorite until he starts coming out of his prime, then Stern will pick the next puppet and the same thing will happen. Look past it if you can.

you know i dont pay too much attention to conspiracy theories, but watching the playoffs this year really has got me thinking something is going on. its kind of funny in the last couple years how the rules have been changed to allow people like kobe and lbj to be able to get more fouls and score more points. remember back in 03 when tmac would put up 60 and that was a big deal at the time. now how many 60 point games have we had since then? i mean before 04, 60 points was hard to come by and now it happens it seems like a couple times a season. i think this year though stern really tried to push kobe and lebron to meet in the finals, but the magic over came all of that and took care of business. i now think stern is up to something.
