I'd make some snide comments, but this guy has saved me the trouble. An excerpt:
So much for embracing the role of villain. Looks like LeBron is going to try and repair his fractured reputation by starring in a Web-based animated series called “The LeBrons.” The series will debut in the spring on James’ YouTube channel, as well as his personal website, www.lebronjames.com, and will feature LeBron voicing the many characters found in his popular Nike commercials.
That’s right—as if one animated LeBron wasn’t enough, you get a mess of them, including 16-year-old Kid LeBron, Business LeBron, the elderly Wise LeBron, Athlete LeBron, and judging from the picture, cute Asian girl LeBron, and token white kid LeBron, which, to me anyway, seems like a stretch for King James’ vocal talents.
Guess they left Narcissistic LeBron on the cutting room floor. That’s probably for the best.
Yeah, this will go over well with the kids, because if there’s anything I know about children, it’s that they really take to being taught life lessons by their favorite cartoons. Big swing and a miss there. Maybe the first episode of “The LeBrons” can focus on how not to alienate an entire city and its fanbase by humiliating them with an hour long, ego stroking television special so the whole world can watch you break their collective hearts in prime time.
I’m sure you could count Jim Gray in on that.
My favorite quote from the article is this:
“I’m mostly a kid at heart,” Mr. James said of these manifestations, “and I’m the athlete, of course, that everyone sees. But I also have a business side, a cool side, and I love antique stuff and classical music. I guess that’s the old man side of me.”
