Hatred for LeBron James, Now in Measurable Form

by September 14, 2010

The Q Scores company has crunched the numbers, and yup, nearly everyone hates LeBron now (though not as much as they hate Kobe! So there’s that …) CNBC reports: “Following James’ move from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Miami Heat, and the way he announced it in the ESPN hour-show dubbed ‘The Decision,’ the general population has changed its opinion of the man nicknamed King. In January 2010, The Q Scores Company took a poll of the general population and found that 24 percent of people thought of James in a positive light, compared to a 22 percent negative opinion. Henry Schafer, executive vice president of the company, told CNBC that the average sports personality has a 15 percent positive score and a 24 percent negative score. ‘LeBron’s positive score at that time was the highest we had ever seen it,’ Schafer said … LeBron’s Q Score today? Schafer says that now only 14 percent of the general population see him as a positive figure, a 41.6 percent drop, while 39 percent view him in a negative light, a 77 percent decline. In fact, LeBron is now the sixth most disliked sports personality, according to The Q Score Company, behind Michael Vick, Tiger Woods, Terrell Owens, Chad Ochocinco and Kobe Bryant.”
