LeBron James, Boobie Gibson Beef, Make Up

It seems that Daniel Gibson and LeBron James may have had cyberbeef before they came to real life truce. ESPN has the 411: “It began at a birthday party for Gibson and Cleveland-based DJ Steph Floss on Friday night. During the event, two witnesses told ESPN.com that Gibson made a reference to being the new king of Cleveland during a toast. According to a source close to Gibson, James became upset upon hearing about the boast. The source said James and Gibson later resolved the issue because Gibson didn’t mean to insult James. But not before the drama unfolded in front of their more-than-1.5 million combined Twitter followers. James tweeted Saturday afternoon: ‘I wake up this morning to hear somebody got real fly at the mouth at their party lastnight [sic]. I see where we stand now even though I sense it!’ He followed with: ‘Get out your feelings.’ Meanwhile, Gibson posted several references to the incident on his Twitter feed, saying: ‘complaining about someones [sic] tweets is like complaining about the channel & you got the remote in your hands.’ Gibson then wrote: ‘Life is too short to worry about what others feel & think about you.. So have fun #DoYou & Give em something to talk about [sic].’ A few hours later James posted the message: ‘The Air is Cleared.’”

    This is some b*tch sh*t.

    As a black man this kind of crap bothers me a lot, this is kind of stuff that keeps us “down” in a sence. Do you think white people have “beef” about something so foolish and put it on display for whole world to read?

    On another note, why does Lebron care if he’s the King of Cleveland anyways? He broke up with the city on national TV for heaven’s sakes…stupid!

    Soap B!tch.. lol

    I swear Twitter is like estrogen for men. Smh

  • MikeC.

    Being the king of Cleveland is like being the greasiest turd in the bowl. Nothing to celebrate.

    That are some real important issues these two guys have to deal with and they act like some real men. ;-)

    The only thing Gibson is the king of is getting stars shaved into his head. Things are so bad in Cleveland that Rip Hamilton nixed a trade that would have sent him there. Yes, the same Rip who just put his coach on blast. So he would rather stay in that toxic situation than go to Cleveland.

    Mo Williams would later tweet, “The King had no respect for Boobie — The King only loved him some Mo Gotti!”

    Really? wow… I’m glad my guy don’t got a gey lil twitter account. this some Bi*ch styled sh*t

    It is good to dream aloud, my brethren. Dreaming aloud is a means of exercise for the soul. It is good, and it is healthy.
    We shall respect Daniel Gibson’s willingness to openly dream aloud about being a king. I mean, the REAL king… layeth thy law unto Gibson, a lowly gentile among men in the kingdom of LeBron. Then Gibson, the gentile, relents AND concedes that LeBron is The King, and now is all well IN LeBron’s kingdom.
    Gibson EVEN offers words of wisdom to the young king. Tells him to not worry about what others think of him, (because he is The King) and provides him with a useful metaphor regarding a concern he had about a tweet. How loyal.

    That is borderline homo, without the homo. ^^^^

    Rather, without the borderline.

  • dannyb

    Wait a sec – they have DJs in Cleveland now??

  • http://Philosophervision@blogspot.com The Philosopher

    You would know, AllBall.
    In fact, you even take offense when called out about your man love for Chris Paul. lol

  • http://slamonline.com AllBall

    I like Chris Paul more than any male should another, considering we have never met. The reason for that is purely for his skills on the basketball floor, the fact that he is seemingly a great guy off it is just a bonus.
    I can’t remember taking offence to being ‘called out’ about my ‘man love’ for CP. It’s evident I admire the guy, why would someone pointing that out cause offence?
    With that being said, your 11:55 comment was still homo.
    I assumed rightly that your retort would be to insinuate that I am gay.

    Uncle Tom, what the hell does this have to do with keeping black people “down”?

    LOL this aint got sh*t to do with being black…shut up

  • http://Philosophervision@blogspot.com The Philosopher

    Well, you are the one promoting how you admire a man more than you should. Especially one you have never met. Because of his skills on the basketball court, no? He seems like a likable guy off the court, no?
    And, maybe you didn’t take offense to people exploiting your man love for Paul. Maybe I misinterpreted the tone of your vigorous defense of Paul.
    For example, you called a commenter an idiot one time for suggesting that comparing Chris Paul to Deron Williams is not within his liking. He also suggested that Williams is better than Paul. You defended Paul like a husband would their wife.
    Anyways, to my main point, you would know about what is and what is not considered “homo” tendencies. Wouldn’t you?
    As far as my retort of insinuating that you may be gay, I mean, I wasn’t the one who even brought up the topic of homosexuality. You did. Of course I would think that about you. Especially being that there is not a single reference in my 11:55am comment about homosexuality.
    So, there is no choice but to make that assessment about you, no?

  • allenp

    As a black man what appears to be keeping us down is a failure to spell correctly.

  • Loaf

    The funny thing is, there probably tweeting from a top of the range phone like I phone or blackberry, which all have spell check….?

  • robb

    boobie gibson is the new king of cleveland??? wow that tells you how sh*tty this team is.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/officerbarbrady what

    In an otherwise b*tch made story, Boobie drops a very true quote — complaining about another man’s tweets is like complaining about the channel when you have the remote. Wise words, Mr. Boobie.

    I agree with you All Ball. The Philosopher is definitely homo. In most of his comments also. All Ball however, has an understandable respect and admiration for Chris Paul. And Mr. Philosopher if your only response is that I am a homo, then you’re imagination is weaker than those who say ‘I know you are but what am I?’

    Phil, you write poems on this site about Bron, on a near weekly basis.
    Saying that some one is better than CP is a lot different than calling me out on my ‘man love’, no?

  • http://www.slamoline.com Max

    If ur the king of Cleveland, ur the king of losers!

  • http://Philosophervision@blogspot.com The Philosopher

    NICE! I never thought of myself a poet until now. lol
    Now, I was inaccurate AND wrong on saying you take offense when called upon for you man love for Chris Paul. Apologies.
    I guess I get caught up in your calling someone stupid, or an idiot if or when someone does not believe that Chris Paul is the best point guard in The League, which is truly and entirely different than someone calling you out on your… love for Chris Paul. And you admiration and affinity for him. So, I’ll concede to that.
    Now, that being said, I have never said that I either love, like, OR admire The King. I just reiterate to the masses that LeBron is… THE KING.
    So, your calling my comment earlier ‘homo’ is kind of a double standard, based on your commentary regarding Chris Paul, whom you have openly expressed your love and admiration for.
    Do you understand where I am coming from?

    I do.
