View Full Version : Run-in With Military Servicemen Makes LeBron Harder to Dislike

Go ahead and hate LeBron James.

It seems like the thing to do if you like any NBA team other than the Heat.

Hey, I get it. The guy spurned a hard-luck sports city in the most distasteful of ways. Taking his talents to South Beach? Who says stuff like that?

In Oklahoma City, the disdain has only grown. LeBron has become the face of the franchise that poses the biggest roadblock to NBA gold for the hometown team. We may know just how big a block after Sunday night's game.

Add in his Twitter-fueled spat with Kendrick Perkins, and LeBron tops the public enemy list.

But before you bring out the torches and pitchforks, you might want to hear this story about LeBron, a layover in Oklahoma City and a run-in with some servicemen.

Three weeks ago, the Heat left Miami for a three-game West Coast swing.

First stop: Portland.

That's a 2,700-mile trip, but it's a flight that most planes make without stopping to refuel.

But on the day that the Heat headed west, the headwinds were stronger than normal. The team plane was going to use more fuel than usual, so a refueling stop would be necessary.

Turns out, Oklahoma City was that stopping point.

Refueling a massive airplane takes time, so according to an airport worker who witnessed the entire scene, the players got off the jet and went inside the general aviation terminal at Will Rogers World Airport. Some lounged in chairs. Others stretched their legs. Most stayed in their own little world.

He noticed a couple of uniformed military personnel approach the team's security person. Unbeknown to him, about a dozen helicopters were stopped there for fuel as well. There were Blackhawks and Apaches and Chinooks, all on long-distance flights. Will Rogers happened to be their refueling stop.

Just like the Heat players, the helicopter pilots were in the terminal stretching their legs.

They never expected the Miami Heat to walk through the door.

Some of them wanted pictures with the players, but when the crew members approached the team's security detail, they were told no.

Maybe LeBron could overhear the conversation, or perhaps he could just tell by their body language what was going on. Either way, he piped up.

“Hey, hey,” he said, “any of these military guys can take a picture with us.”

He turned to his teammates.

“You guys get up,” he told them.

He turned to the servicemen.

“Get your camera up,” he said.

He started to wave the servicemen over but noticed that some of the players weren't yet on their feet.

“Hey, everybody get up,” he said. “Get in a circle here. Anybody that wants their picture taken with us, we'll do it.”

And that's exactly what they did. Any of the four or five dozen helicopter crewmen who wanted a photo got one. Not all of them did, but LeBron and his teammates posed with each and every one of them who asked.

When those pilots and crewmen walked out of the terminal and back across the tarmac, they had big ol' smiles on their faces.

“Can you believe that?” they asked each other. “Who would've ever thought?”

Maybe they meant who would've thought they'd run into the Miami Heat at the Oklahoma City airport.

But maybe they meant, “Who would've ever thought LeBron would be so cool?”

It would've been so easy for a superstar like that to ignore those military men. No one would've ever known that he turned a blind eye to their request.

But that's not what he did. One of the biggest villains in sports did something nice for some of the folks who have volunteered to protect and defend our country's freedom. It wasn't for publicity. It wasn't a big deal for those players. But for those helicopter crews who may one day put themselves in harm's way, it is something they'll always relish.

So, go ahead and hate LeBron if you must.

I'm just not sure he seems like such a bad guy anymore.

And before anyone claims this is just a PR stunt, this occurred almost a month ago and now's when we first hear of it:


Eventually, the word got out — though clearly not from James, who acted Sunday as if it wasn’t a big deal.

how about cleveland get him a better second option in 7 years than mo williams and maybe he would consider it.

how about not turning down amare for jj hickson and maybe he will stay.

how about paying carlos boozer and maybe he will stay.

he owed nothing to that team.

be serious here, you think if he didn't do the decision he would not have been criticized? you are absolutely crazy if you think that.

he has admitted it wasn't a great show, but if you hang all of your criticism on that, you are flat out lying to yourself. any way he would have changed teams and he would have been criticized.

I don't think Lebron is a "good dude" at all. I've seen and read enough over the past 5 years or so to reach that conclusion on my own accord. This was a nice thing he did, that doesn't make him a great person. Al Capone ran soup kitchens, John Wayne Gacy worked with disabled kids, they were good guys too right?

To reiterate, I'm not taking anything away from Lebron's action here. He did a nice thing for some guys who are more than deserving of his kindness. However, one nice thing does not a good person make.

Right, I equated Lebron James to Al Capone & John Wayne Gacy. Because comparison is the same as equation. Your grasp on the function of the English language is remarkable. Might wanna start "saving PSD some memory" of your own if that's really the best counter you can come up with.

Lebron isn't Al Capone. He isn't a good guy either.

No one was every claiming LeBron was a bad person. He does a decent amount for the community working with the boys and girls club, granted most of the NBA does. This is a nice thing to do. But it doesn't make him less unlike able. He dissed his hometown on National television, he didn't even give them fair warning. They found out while watching the show. And the whole event was completely self absorbed and self indulgent. That doesn't make him a bad person, it just makes him a douche which is why a large majority of people don't like him

that decision is nationally televised and makes him look like a real jerk, but at the same time he still donated mad money to local cleveland foundations.

lebron doesn't have a time machine, he can't go back and change that. people grow up, make better decisions and this is one of them.

right, and the point here is perspective. what matters more? pissing off sports fans? or honoring our servicemen and women in a genuine way? the point is, what says more about the persons character. i've always felt lebron has had his heart in the right place. at most, guilty of getting bad advice and trying to please too many people.

Yes but the heat have 3. For basketball sake, I hope the heat don't win a ship. It sets a bad precedent. It puts the heat in a bad position because they're supposed to win, and it puts the league in a bad position because teams and players think that collusion may be the quickest route to a championship.

I never disliked LeBron, just thought he took the easy way out to go and play with his buddies in Miami rather than trying to take his own team to a title. I thought he took the easy way out.

He went where he felt he would be comfortable and have a chance to win a title, okay good for him. I don't dislike him for it, just wish he would WANT to win a title on HIS team, not by joining Wade's team.

I think he's a nice guy and does a lot of good things outside of the game.

That is a great story but I personally do not see a reason to hate Lebron James. I am a Knick fan and wish he would have went to New York but he did not, oh well he is still the best player in the NBA. I root against him because he is on Miami and only one team can come out of the East and obviously I want it to be New York. When I watch him on interviews he seems to be a real personable guy and I like him. Other people hate because they wish he was on their team and some do not want to admit that. Nice story.

I'm a Toronto Raptors fan so I never thought LBJ would come here so I have no reason to hate him for the team he choose but him dissing the entire NBA fan base after losing the finals well I have beef with that and posing for a few pictures with service men isn't making me feel all warm and fuzzy inside based on his past statements and actions like also mocking another teams superstar on national television in the finals as well.

lebron seems like a nice guy, and this story backs that up....yes, the decision was a bad idea but he had good intentions (donating to the boys and girls club).

tbh I think more than half the people that hate lebron don't really have a reason to hate him and are just jumping on the lebron hate bandwagon.

Does anyone actually think he's a bad guy? He's an idiot and makes an ******* of himself constantly, but it's not like he doesn't seem like a cool guy.

I mean, I would never want to hang out with Kobe, he's probably a legitimately giant *******. But I respect the hell out of him. LeBron makes an idiot of himself, but I bet he's an absolute blast to hang out with. What I hate about LeBron James is as a player, not a human being.

maybe he should take pictures with people who choose to blow them selves up, burn their women alive, or dip their children in boiling water to punish them. Maybe you should go talk to Iraqis how life was when Saddam was there Because I have, or maybe talk to the Afghans who live in areas where the Taliban is not in control and ask them the difference

I went to Iraq and Afghanistan as a medic so please educate me on what benefits did I reap from those people because I would like to know.

Wow guy makes a video about this but doesn't complain how much of his money went to save millionairess when they got caught ripping people off shows where his priorities are.

The truth hurts and to be mad because people do have to go back to their lives at the end of the day is funny. That's why people like that will never taste success they will eventually hit a ceiling because some how its wrong for someone to point out the truth to people.

Also Tim Tebow made the exact same statement during the season I guess he is a POS now and a horrible person.

I genuinely think he's a good guy. He always was incredibly charitable, humble, polite, soft-spoken and very community-oriented basically before the decision...and then perception started to trump reality, and the reality of the matter did change slightly.

It's well-documented how charitable he is, and I genuinely think he cares. It's easy to hate him, but that doesn't mean everything he does is for the wrong intentions. I don't think he does this stuff for PR...because I don't think he cares about the PR anymore...

He's under a microscope. Everything he does that's "good" can just be chalked off as PR stunts...and every little thing he does can be blown out of proportion. Like that one time he didn't high-five a kid...a lot of people make that out to be him being the spawn of Satan...when in reality I'm sure every player has rejected a high-five once in their life. I've even done it, I must be evil.

oh you mean the one that raised a few million dollars for the boy and girls clubs which has helped build many "new" clubs all over the country? It's you non lebron fans and heat haters that wont let "The Decision" go. I'm pretty sure the little kids that play in the "New" clubs Lebron helped build dont see it the way you do and im sure thats all that matters to Lebron. You're one of the BIGGEST Heat haters I've seen on this site. Let it go kid. It was only an hour show that was a few years ago. I get it though. You just love to hate since your laker run is over

I always tell my grandson: it's not easy when everyone thinks you are the greatest NBA player in the league, but it's harder when you think you are the greatest NBA player in the league. he has a big ego for a reason, but he's done a lot of good with his platform and money, and he's a good kid.

Everyone who hates Lebron hates him for "Basketball reasons" no one hates him because they think he eats puppies or something on his own time. Lebron is a good guy! I've never heard anyone say otherwise EVER!!! People hate him for the stupid PR things he does:

1. The decision

2. Preseason celebration and promise of championships (5,6,7 while dancing around on stage)

3. Mocking NBA fan base in NBA finals last year

4. He PROMISED Cleveland that he would never leave till he won a championship and he took off to win the easy way

4a.He also PROMISED Cleveland multiple championships like he did for Miami and pretty much spit in there face on national TV

5. This guy has started so much **** that he even pissed off one of his biggest fans right before the season began (this is during the lockout and this guy LOVES Lebron but can't stand his stupid PR moves).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUGbq6v8tIk

6. Mocking the other teams superstar in Dirk

7. Having a press conference after every single game last year

8. He even recently said he wants to return to Cleveland while he's playing for another team.

The list goes on dude is annoying if you watch basketball but if you look at him as a person.... Just Lebron James he's a good kid but dude needs to shut the **** up and play ball and honestly for the most part this year that is what he's been doing and I've been fairly impressed.

When it comes to PR he creates his own problems like shown above and who you gonna blame for that haters :rolleyes: Don't give anyone any ammo I've been saying this for years just shut the **** up and play ball. It's all basketball guys no one hates him for anything else so lets not get it twisted too twisted.

Dude is a good guy just a moron when it comes to PR.

P.S

D-Wade hasn't been too impressive either this year with his tweet: Loyalty!!! HAHHAHAHA!!!

People expected Lebron to be Jordan-esk because he started all this hype coming out of high school and called himself "The King." HE said we are all witnesses and promised 8 championships to Miami.

Ummmm maybe you're one of the very very very few laker fans that doesn't constantly bash lebron or think he's a bad person and props to you for that. But there have been a TON of people that have said things so disgraceful about Lebron and that includes him being a "bad person." Where have u been lately? Many people have said he's a bad person, and much worse. He's never in trouble with the law, is known to be a respectable family man, has done nice deeds in the past such as give kids his shoes the other month. Meanwhile you have Kobe Bryant who has been accused of cheating on his wife more than just once. You have Michael Vick who was a dog killer as well. Yet Lebron is more hated because he left a joke of a franchise in Cleveland to go play? Just goes to show how society's morals are a little confused.

LeBron is one of the best human beings in the league. Dude pays tribute where it's due, doesn't cheat, and plays hard.

Regardless, some people will keep hating on him:

1. Because he's the best on the planet. One insecure fanbase spend 24/7 here just because he's by far the greatest on the planet.

2. Because he didn't pick their teams in 2010 (Basically applies for two franchises, I don't need to mention, too easy).

3. Only cavs fans' hate is justified, not because of the decision but because it's usual.

As a member of the United States Armed Forces it is always good to hear a story like this. But when I was stationed at Eglin AFB last year and the Miami Heat did their training camp there it was an entirely different story. We were all invited to come and take pics and get autographs with the Heat one day before and after their practice at the base gym. Well I took my wife and kids up there to take pictures with possibly the best players to play the game (him and wade). Well long story short Lebron pretty much blew off everyone Wade didnt sign more than 3 autographs but CB4 was very cool. Me and my family actually sat and talked with James Jones for about 30 minutes. He actually was explaining to my wife how is wife decorated their babies room. After it was all said and done the general consensus on base was just as advertised (Lebron is a dick and now you can include Wade and even Eddie House who acted like he was hurt so he didnt have to sign autographs

Pretty sure all that money went to that local Connecticut BAGC, which is already a rich town and really didn't need the money. Could be wrong though, so don't flame me over it.

Look, I like what LeBron did here as a future military officer and as a person, but one thing doesn't change anything for me. I've thought he was a douchebag ever since he was in Cleveland and took on the name "The King," so don't take it like I don't admire the guy just because he's a member of the Miami Heat.

That's messed up didn't know the guy was a druggy and beat his killer. Sounds like he had it coming and not the victim he's being paraded around as. I just started reading about it after seeing your post this is what NBC news has been saying as of just a few hours ago...

But yes this may be another thing to add to poor PR stunts for Lebron... Him and the Heat could have just left this as an unsolved case for the police to take care of but they had to do there hoodie stunt to draw attention to themselves. He's opened himself up to questions now about this without knowing all the facts... I do think his heart was in the right place but dude just needs to shut up and play ball and everything will take care of itself.

He has a massive ego, which isn't a surprise at all considering he is the best basketball player in the world and he's been surrounded by attention and money since high school.

The combination of those things, exemplified by travesties like "The Decision" will always make him "unlikeable."

No one realizes, the so called "Decision" benefits went to some charities. Maybe he went all about it the wrong way, but benefited others. People don't realize that they never put good or great players around lebron. They should've traded for Amare Stoudemire when they had a chance. IMO that would've convinced lebron to stay .

I'm pretty sure everyone knows that proceeds went to charity, but here is what a lot of fans have a problem with:
1. He dumped his hometown on national t.v.
2. He went the egotistical route (whether intentional or not) and decided he was the first player in the history of the league worthy of an hour special for his free agency decision
3. The HEAT trio stating that they would win not 1, not 2, not 3.... championships

Then, there are people like me who:
1. Don't like the hype and special treatment he's gotten on the court since day 1 (when he was allowed to simply run over players and get free throws)
2. Don't like superstar calls
3. Don't care for superstar attitudes
4. Find Lebron's need to be liked off-putting

I don't hate the Heat, I dislike the Heat because they feel entitled to winning 7 championships and getting calls from the refs for every play. But that's besides the point.


Why couldn't LeBron just donate some of his own millions of dollars to the Boys and Girls Club? Wouldn't that be a more noble thing to do. Seems to me it was another PR move while being a simultaneous dick for LeBron. It's not his fault, he's just surrounded by knuckleheads aka his high school and childhood buddies.

Wow you are the first person to see where I was coming from with my post. Never in my 10 year career in the military have I ever felt entitled to anything special just for serving my country. It was a decision I made and I am proud of what I do. But hey thanks for seeing where I was coming from

Other than the distasteful way he left Cleveland and guaranteed titles, I can't dislike him for anything else. It's clear the guy has good intentions not just with this one event. If anything, The Decision fiasco should be blamed on his reps' ill-advising him. If I weren't a Knicks fan, I'd be rooting for him to win atleast a ring.

I have never hated him. I fought viciously against his haters most of the last 2 years, and even in the finals when he had a poor performance I stuck up for him against for my favorite team.

He honestly seems like a good guy from multiple sources, and I do hope he wins 3-4 times in his career.

Thanks for your service. I understood where you were coming from.
I think the person who replied negatively felt entitled to, because he served as well...

Anyways, if you ever want to take a picture with me, I'm all for it because I'm just a good dude.

Are you massively rich and famous? Do you have people running at you wanting a picture everytime you appear in public?

Slightly different:D

As long as you make educated posts and aren't constantly baiting (so opposite of dnewguy), you will find no desire to pummel from my end. I assure you my sig was chosen purely because of Rose's expression, although LBJs face makes me smile because he genuinely looks as excited as a kid in a candy store.

Its funny that Lebron generally enjoys his life so much and I love how Rose takes everything so serious at such a young age I wish every player was like him.
Nah I'm not biased I love the NBA for basketball not for a team or the city they're in.

Neither were wrong for acting the way they did. Just being yourself. If you want to dance, as the great Men Without Hats said "We can dance if we want to", if you want to take it seriously, by all means.

If players were all like Rose, we would have no lol's at JaVale McGee-like antics.

While most laugh at those silly antics I feel bad for fans that have those players on their teams.

Close when I first started watching BBall maybe in the early 2000's he was the craziest looking white guy out there so I use it still for sites like these and PSN

I think everybody likes the Birdman and if you dont then their is something wrong. I definitely like Lebron as a player but I am an Atlanta Hawks fan and always have been so while I still watch every team play I am always a little biased toward the hawks
