    i can’t imagine the maloofs enjoy sitting down w/ kj or doing any favors for SAC w/ this kind of stuff going around.

    don’t get me wrong… bron bron aint a bad guy for this, neither is kj… just saying.

    You don’t become rich enough to own an NBA franchise by doing favours for other people. More importantly, this was hardly mean-spirited.

    It isn’t like the Maloofs have been the model of good faith or anything.

    Lebron is becoming less and less hated, which I guess is good for the NBA, because casual fans need to start recognizing his greatness

    If he’s gonna become truly great, like MJ great, he’s gonna have to do something about the way he dresses. We’ve seen Kobe in a suit, we’ve seen Wade in a suit, we’ve seen CP3 in a suit, and they all dress better than him. Nobody dressed better than MJ when MJ was playing. Nobody.

  • davidR

    you seen the way he dresses now tho?

  • roscoe

    thank you for your perspective & i don’t disagree with you entirely sir…

    But, my comment was not about “how to become rich” it was about “how to get rich ppl to work with you and your city.”

  • roscoe

    i don’t disagree w/ you, but i have not heard the maloofs saying “can rich ppl move to SAC to support our team?”

    imo, taking the high road, so to speak, is in the best interests of SAC’s fans.

  • Dagger

    Personally, I think most of them work with you/your city when their self-interest is involved, emotions be damned. Which is entirely reasonable.

  • Dagger

    Oh, so that’s why MJ was great.

    is this a joke? who cares if he comes in a bathrobe it doesn’t change the way he plays

  • Tweaks

  • Chukaz
