    LeBron James "********" Comment

    I heard some commentators on the radio talking about this. Some woman reporter asked a dumb question and Lebron James muttered under his breath "That's ********" I don't think this is a huge deal, but this still isn't something a high profile athlete should ever say. Here's a link to the article and the video.
    LeBron James was handling his usual postgame media duties when a question directed towards Dwyane Wade bothered him. Wade was asked about people remarking that he was playing dirty (as evidenced by the Rajon Rondo dislocated elbow play). LeBron was visibly bothered by the line of thinking and muttered under his breath, “that’s ********.” The microphone below him caught his utterance, which you can see in this video:

    I have no problem with this becuase he wasn't literally calling anyone a ****** or making fun of people with mental disabilities. He was merely saying that it was ridiculous in thinking that DWade purposely hurt Rondo

    Honestly, I hate the Heat and Lebron, but this thread is ********. He's still a 27 year old dude. I'm 28 and still say my friends or other people are ********. Stop trolling.

    Big THX to MJ's Bulls and pheagles10 on the sig help!
    Dear T-Mac,
    I miss you.
    Love,

    That anecdote makes you look bad. It doesn't help defend Lebron.

    This is another example of Lebron not realizing that everything he does is going to be magnified immensely and that he needs to be cognizant of that. It might be just about being pc, but this will end up making news and making him look bad in many peoples eyes.

    But you're not a superstar in the NBA with a national spotlight. I know he wasn't meaning to do anything bad, but the media is brutal and that's not something a public figure should do.

    People are to sensitive these days. Lebron said nothing wrong here. Give me a break. If he had called a Celtics player that then it would be different.
    With the deepest of regrets I am announcing that I will be leaving Pro Sports Daily. No reason in particular but wanted to thank everyone for a great 6 years here. Lots of great discussion and good poll series as well. Also fun re-drafts. Best of luck to you all in the future.

    thing is the problem is that this word does really really hurt the mentally disabled whether or not its directed to them

    and when you have kids that look up to you, thinking this word is ok and end up calling a kid with mental disabilities out on the playground the word "********"

    also saying the word ********, you never know when there is someone around who could have mental disabilities that may overhear what you said or someone who has family/friends that have these problems who do take offense to it

    bottom line is you shouldn't use this word, just like how people use the word rape. i worked at a daycare, and there are kids who have mental disabilities and when you sit down and talk to them, they truly get hurt when they hear this word whether or not its directed to them or not

    Lebron is still just a big dumb kid... he never got to grow up in a normal childhood cuz his crackhead mom, and he always says dumb ****... he needs to go to some PR classes over the summer, but he won't, he'll just chill

    Midgets and Dwarfs everywhere think it's ******** that we are not allowed to use the term ******** anymore.

    ******** = Slow or weak in mental developent.

    The question was weak in mental development. If you thought the play was dirty your basketball iq is ********

    Its not that big of a deal, because I understand that this phrase is unfortunately often used like "thats stupid" or "thats absurd", but I would still like to think that high-profile athletes such as himself could make a better attempt at at least pretending to be a good role model for the numerous children who look up to him.
