LeBron James Fever gone Wild….

LBJ has a new twitter account…
LBJ has started a new website which will give you live feeds and updates of his annoucements…
I think the people who do care, only care about 1 announcement in particular. Where might King James spend his days and nights for the next 5 or 6 years…. Lets hope for 6 in the Q.

Here is a great ESPN article which helps put this frenzy in perspective and some interesting Fan Behavior as well.

By Tim Keown, ESPN The Magazine senior writer Tim Keown co-wrote Josh Hamilton’s autobiography, “Beyond Belief: Finding the Strength to Come Back

The idiocy is what we’ll miss. Once LeBron James announces Thursday where he’ll play basketball for the next several years, there will be no more alphabet-based songs from Broadway singers, no more fans spending their own money on billboards, no more guys waxing their chests and devising elaborate handshakes to persuade James to play basketball for their team.

Fans wooing LeBron James have used cars, websites, billboards, signs, songs and much more to spread their message.

The vast, endless stupidity is what separates us from other creatures. It is what makes us proud to be American sports fans. And in LeBron James we have found a remarkable confluence of circumstances, people and cities to bring the stupidity to an epic spike, a moment in time that is giving us a glimpse into the brains of a certain segment of the population.

Let’s break it down:

A pointed finger: Classic stall tactic. Caught off guard by the question, he buys himself some time by pointing at the questioner. Defuses the situation immediately by acknowledging both the question and the questioner. The outward point clearly indicates a desire to be elsewhere.

Advantage: Bulls.

Smile: He’s happy. He’s in Akron. Smile presents something of a contradiction when juxtaposed with outward pointing finger. Could be diversionary tactic. Important question not addressed: Was it a close-mouthed smile or were teeth involved? If teeth, done deal.

Advantage: Cavs.

One response to “LeBron James Fever gone Wild….

  1. Great post, I really enjoyed reading it! Now this leaves some big questions with Lebron if he will be willing to take less money to go to miami i think not but who knows. Chicago might still be the option but Cleveland is also a great possibiltity. But I guess Bosh moving to Miami with Wade was sort of the first speculation and what people expected from the start. But that changed recently with all the new speculation that never came to fruition. Now I’m Excited to see what’s in store for Miami. I think that Bosh will excel in Miami because Wade will open up space for him and visa-versa. If they can add the right pieces it is sure going to a team to be reckoned with. You think you could check out my blog as well cuz I really want to know your thoughts on my thoughts :). http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2010/07/07/chris-bosh-will-be-money-in-the-bank/
