The Orlando Magic didn't have a chance against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Susan Boyle was a shoo-in to win "Britain's Got Talent."
Kris Allen was a long shot in an "American Idol" final with Adam Lambert.
Rafael Nadal is a Slam Dunk to win the French Open.
But Boyle was "incredibly gracious" in defeat,
Adam Lambert was also a class act in defeat
Nadal was a class in his defeat against an opponent he did not like at all
And King LeBron showed he was just Spoiled Princess James in his defeat.
James showed he is no better than these So Called World Class Athletes
We are in a period of sports where many of our athletes and even the media that covers them
are so self centered and are so "me-me" or "us-us" when talking about what happened.
Lebron has been promoted as the new face of the NBA and today's dominate athlete of all of sports. He works hard, plays hard and has always been willing to talk to the media as things were good, but the mark of real class and leadership is how you handle yourself in defeat.
LaBron failed this test as bad as anyone can do. It is one thing not to shake hands right after the game, but He should had faced the media and answered every question the media asked him after game 6 no matter how long it took. And what makes it worst is that on Sunday James offered no apology's to not facing the media on Saturday night only saying he is a winner and does not like losing.
There are many of todays world Class Athletes and even notorious athletes who do answer all
the questions the media asked them. Among them are Kobe Bryant, Derek Jeter, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady.
And even notorius ones like Barry Bonds and Alex Rodriguez sat in front of the media knowing that everyone wants them to trip up and look bad.
If Lebron James to be the Face of the NBA he needs to grow up a whole lot, Those who say he is only 24, that is not an excuse because he has been in the NBA for 6 seasons, He is now a seasoned veteran, he should be a the leader on his team and of all players in the NBA.
Two other notes, There will be a Coaching Change in Cleveland. Mike Brown is out and Jeff Van Gundy is in.
if I am a Cleveland fan I would be prepared for LeBron to leave the Cavs, unless the Cavs make it to at least the NBA finals I truly expect him to leave.
