Can someone give me a logical reason to hate him? Whenever I ask my friends why they hate him so much they say it's because he's an arrogant prick who gets every call in his favor. Almost all of the greatest players fit that description though. Jordan, Kobe, Iverson are all way worse human beings who had their dicks sucked by the refs every night. LeBron is just another manufactured superstar used to sell merchandise, Jordan was the exact same. So why is he pretty much the most hated player of all time? Even before "The Decision" he was universally hated. Do people hate him just because it's cool to hate him?
Is LeBron James the Nickelback of basketball?
>So why is he pretty much the most hated player of all time? Even before "The Decision" he was universally hated. Do people hate him just because it's cool to hate him?
What the hell are you talking about? Lebron is easily the most popular player in the country. Before the decision, he was pretty much universally liked, and the villain image he picked up after The Decision was really short-lived.
I' ve always been asking this question as well. Like im not a huge Lebron fan or anything but ive always wondered why people incessantly hate him. Like people DETEST this guy even though he has no scandals in his career, is a good father, hasnt commited any crimes like the usual dindu, and overall isnt a bad person. Everyone loves MJ who was a way waorse human being, but idk, what can you do? Haters gonna hate i guess
Because we always hear about how awesome he is how historical his stats are how "he could average a triple double or 30 a game if he wanted to" but it all just resulted in two rings. When you hear about LBJ you hear about what stats he put up. When you hear about MJ you hear about what games he one (averaging 37 a game is a fucking footnote in his career).
>muh six straight finals
that results from playing in a historically mediocre conference put KD or CP3 or Curry or Westbrook or sheeit even Harden on one of average East teams and I bet LBJ doesn't make 6 straight finals (including this season because he WILL make the Finals again).
Kobe has the built in "influenced but will never be as great as Jordan" factor. He's an ascended Jordan fanboy. Sucking Kobe off is basically sucking Jordan off. The fact that Kobe has exactly one less ring than Jordan after coming short in his second 3peat attempt is pure pottery.
there isn't one. People hate him for a few reasons and celebrate others who embodied more extreme versions of those reasons. people are just whiny fags who nitpick and can't just enjoy nice things
its the same reason /tv/ has been going ape shit about a childrens movie about space wizards.
People hated him before The Decision. They said he was a whiny entitled pussies who travelled all the time who wouldn't take a game-winning shot
These people were also too young or too nostalgic to actually remember how much of a crybaby bitch Jordan was when he played and assume 90s basketball was basically prison rules
Arrogant, and the fact that everything becomes a "hate meme" if it's possible. Like duckface, it's really not that bad, but it caught on so everyone hates it now. He doesn't do any dindu shit, and is always helping the community.
Of course he is, but Golden State has been getting all the blowjobs since Curry and Green broke out.
>These people were also too young or too nostalgic to actually remember how much of a crybaby bitch Jordan was when he played and assume 90s basketball was basically prison rules
THIS he cried so much about the bad boys he got the rules changed

Bruh, the NBA expanded like an american teenager during the years Jordan played while he was on the most stacked team of all time. There were way way more awful teams then there are now. LeBron also regularly beat the championship-tier Pistons, Celtics and Heat by himself as well as the very good Arenas Wizards and Bulls. The Pacers were legit too but it was short lived.
The records are VERY inflated because of expansion teams. Nearly 10 teams were added from the mid '80s to the late '90s which watered down the league and made it extremely top-heavy.
>Bruh, the NBA expanded like an american teenager during the years Jordan played while he was on the most stacked team of all time.
the TWolves, Heat, Hornets, and Magic joined the league while MJ was carrying shit Bullls teams in the late 80s. The Raptors and Grizz came during the mid 90s which does inflate the 72 and 69 win seasons. also
MJ, Pippen, Rodman(an offensive zero)/Grant(meh) and... Kukoc? Paxson? BJ Armstrong? Luc Longley?
>LeBron also regularly beat the championship-tier Pistons,
The only season he beat the Pistons when they were good was in 07 (and they had the rotting corpse of Chris Webber as their center)
LOL he only beat them after teaming with Wade and Bosh (although that 2012 game 6 performance was legendary) plus by the time he beat them Allen, KG, and Pierce were definitely past their primes
>and Heat by himself
he never played them in the playoffs. unless you're talking about muh regular season
>as well as the very good Arenas Wizards
the Arenas wiz were only "very good" in 05 (before Bron made the playoffs) and 06 (valid). They didn't have Arenas and Butler in the 07 playoffs and Arenas was injured in 08
The Baby Bulls were overrated, the Rose Bulls had two quality years (2011 and 2015)
>The Pacers were legit too but it was short lived
Meh, plus they were a chemistry nightmare that shouldn't have even beaten the fucking hawks in 2014 unless people have already forgotten
Plus compare those teams to the Bad Boy Pistons, Ewing's Knicks, Shaq/Penny Magic, Mourning's Heat, Miller's Pacers, Magic's Lakers, Drexler's Blazers, Barkley's Suns, Kemp/Payton Sonics, and the Stockton/Malone Jazz (that's not even mentioning the teams he beat in the regular season)
