Now LeBron Is Insulting Your Intelligence, Too

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.")
