Lebron snaps back at critics in new Nike Commercial

Personally I think this commercial only reinforces what "The Decision" told us- Lebron has poor handlers and a lot of maturity issues.

Taking shots at MJ and Barkley? Come on. A real man would take it in stride, keep his mouth shut, and prove it on the court. IMO his acknowledgment of all the criticism only serves to validate said critics. I thought the commercial was very well made, but stupid on James' part. Through this commercial, he essentially put two middle fingers in the air at everyone not on his side.

I actually like it. Can't keep everyone happy, he's proven that.

I liked the Don Johnson cameo

Self-important Douchebag.

Re: Lebron snaps back at critics in new Nike Commercial

I liked it... the potshot at Charles was funny- the whole "I'm not a role model" theme when Charles did it referred to the fact he didn't care what people said or thought about him. And after Charles criticized LeBron for his Miami decision, I don't blame James for responding. And let's be honest- MJ's been a crotchety old man for the longest time... remember his HoF speech? He calls out his kids!

I didn't catch the dig at MJ. What was it? When he talked about selling shoes?

I think it was interesting because it truly shows how LeBron feels. Boo hoo the whole world is against poor little LeBron James, and it was never his fault at all...

Right move by Nike, because it gets us talking about him and Nike.

I had no issues with the commercial. Glad the season is finally underway though. It's a crazy world we live in when LeBron gets ripped all summer (even receiving death threats and racial slurs) for making a professional decision while Ben Roethlisberger and Michael Vick get standing ovations.

SS I do think that is ridiculous. In the end it is his choice and he shouldn't receive death threats or slurs.

However, that doesn't mean we should forget how created an unnecessary media spectacle for during his free agency team selection, how whines like crazy, how he travels more than Anthony Bourdain and all his history against the Bullets. Don't know how any true DC fan can view anything LeBron does without a bit of scrutiny.

I'm not a big LeBron fan by any means, and yeah the whole free agency process was questionable. I didn't really care that he chose to tell the world on tv that he was going to Miami or even that he left Cleveland (what does he owe them?) But the mature thing to do would have been to handle it all a bit more subtly.

But at the end of the day, I think too much is being made out of it. He's not the first person to choose to leave one place for the other yet he's being made out to be a monster when the reality is that we should be so lucky f the worst person in sports was LeBron James

Re: Lebron snaps back at critics in new Nike Commercial

I wasn't implying you are a big LeBron fan, he's just laid a hurting to the Wiz quite a bit(along with the complaining, etc.) I don't really like him as a player.

A lot of people felt the same way about Jordan too, so I am not saying he is the worst person in sports.

Yeah I didn't mean to say you implied that. Just saying that I'm a huge Wizards fan (season tickets) and at the same time I'm not as bothered by LeBron as I guess it's expected I should be
