LeBron James "clarified" his postgame comments about how people who rooted against him were losers with "personal problems"—that is, he shied away from his own quote as if it were a wide-open clutch-time three-point opportunity:


"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."

James is a humble regular American, like everyone. Remember how when your uncle changed jobs, he did it with a TV special and a fog machine?


If LeBron doesn't believe he's a bigger deal than the people who watch his games, where does he think the money in his bank account comes from? It's embarrassing to see a superstar grovel like Mitt Romney in New Hampshire. What happened to the days when Michael Irvin would show up for a court date in a full-length mink coat? Own your mink coat, LeBron.

(Related: Daniel Sedin now says that when he said, "We're going to win Game 7," what he meant was, "If we put our best game on the ice, I like our chances.")
