In a press conference following the Miami Heat’s loss to the Dallas Mavericks last night, LeBron James was asked how it feels to have so many people rooting against him. He made another misstep in improving his image and gaining fans, saying,
“All the people that were 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. They have the same personal problems they had today. I’m going to continue to live the way I want to live and continue to do the things that I want to do with me and my family and be happy with that. So they can get a few days or a few months or whatever the case may be on being happy about not only myself, but the Miami Heat not accomplishing their goal. But they got to get back to the real world at some point.”
The seemingly arrogant response left room for interpretation and sounded surly. Once again, LeBron James has some work to do if he wishes to bolster his image.
