(Satire) In the era of players being crowned the King without any titles, Michael Jordan must be laughing while he polishes his six NBA rings.
In fact, he is.
After the highly criticized "decision," LeBron James went public with his thoughts once more. In a tweet he claimed he would never forget the cheap shots that fans and commentators alike took at him for his controversial public address.
I had thought that the viral video of Cleveland fans ripping LeBron, dubbing over his Nike ad would be the last we'd hear of it.
Boy, was I wrong.
All in all, the original ad must have resonated with Cleveland fans. They either hate him, or love to hate him.
It seems we forgot about one legend. It would also seem that he doesn't enjoy watching the NBA athletes of this generation act like they've been to the pinnacle and back.
Arguably, Jordan is the best player to walk the hardwood courts. His name is synonymous with greatness, and his "Jumpman" image is on more apparel in basketball than the Jerry West logo silhouette.
We knew Jordan was cocky before he blasted Bryon Russell, telling him during his Hall of Fame speech that if he ever sees him in basketball shorts, he's coming at him.
We didn't, however, know that he feels guilty for allowing egos such as LeBron's to take center stage.
It seems kind of trivial for such an icon, but Jordan certainly has his argument backed up.
In the video posted along with this article, Jordan comes in with his own testimonial, claiming responsibility in some ways.
He points at the fact that he worked hard his whole career, and nothing was anointed to him. Is it directed at LeBron? You'll have to make your own judgment call.
Bottom line, MJ ends it in classic fashion: Far from classy. But that's MJ's style. He knows he's the greatest player in a long time, and he'll be damned if LeBron is the one to achieve his level of stardom.
