Every ESPN TV and radio platform, when it isn’t shoving the World Cup in your face, is telling you that you really need to care about where Lebron James ends up next year.
I don’t care where he ends up because I don’t care about the NBA, but I understand it’s a story and it’s important to a lot of people.
What I don’t get is all the “legacy” talk.
I keep hearing and seeing discussions about LeBron’s legacy and how it will be affected if he leaves Miami and ends up on his third team.
Does anybody REALLY care about his legacy?
Does LeBron REALLY care about his legacy?
Why should he?
He should do whatever he thinks will make him happy now.
Do you really think that Wayne Gretzky cares that he made that stop in St. Louis to play for the Blues?
Would it have made sense for him to stay in Edmonton instead of agreeing to the trade to Los Angeles because it would make him happier now as a 53 year old man?
The media love to talk about this stuff, but can they really expect the players to take it seriously?
Myron Cope would say that the people obsessing on LeBron’s legacy sound like a bunch of card party women.
I would never say that in 2014 because it’s politically incorrect.
I wouldn’t want it to affect my legacy.
