LeBron James Clarifies Comments

For LeBron James, it’s another installment of, “What I had meant to say was…”  LeBron clarified his postgame comments following the Miami Heat’s series ending loss to the Mavericks in the NBA Finals.  Are you buying it?

The Dallas Mavericks beat the Miami Heat 105-95 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.  The win clinched the first title in franchise history for the Mavericks, and prevented LeBron James from winning his first championship.

Following the loss, LeBron made some comments that he was later criticized for.  “All the people that was rooting on me to fail, at the end of the day they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life that they had before they woke up today,” James said Sunday. “They have the same personal problems they had today.”

LeBron clarified his statements Tuesday.  “Basically I was saying at the end of the day this season is over and — with all hatred — everyone else has to move on with their lives, good or bad. I do too,” James said.

“It wasn’t saying I’m superior or better than anyone else, any man or woman on this planet, I’m not. I would never ever look at myself bigger than anyone who watched our game. It may have come off wrong but that wasn’t my intent.”

I appreciate LeBron clarifying his statements.  LeBron’s initial comments on Sunday weren’t awful.  However, the comments didn’t do anything to help his public image.  When you talk the talk but fail to walk the walk like LeBron did in the NBA Finals, you’re going to get criticized for it.  Accept some blame and move on.
