I posted a couple days ago about Dwyane Wade continuing to raise his level of douchebaggery. I mean seriously, how dumb do you have to be as Wade to say the stuff he said here?
You've got LeBron James keeping mental notes about all the people who pointed out he's a douchebag. Hey LeBron, every look back at this and think that people might not call you such a douchebag if you weren't being such a douchebag? Who has their own hour long show to tell their hard core supporters to f 'off.
Now Chris Bosh, who had, up until now largely been just called Wade's bitch because people had hurt feelings while not really doing anything too negative has stepped up his game when it comes to douchebaggery.
"If you think about how many times somebody asks you, 'How are you,'
that's how many times I was asked, 'Where you going? So it's like, well,
in my case, I'm going to have fun with it. I'm going to play with
people's emotions. I'm going to be high and low."
"I wouldn't call it a game because it's serious, but, I mean, it's
entertainment at the end of the day . . . "It's entertaining to see
people react to your real emotions because if it wasn't fun I wouldn't
So, a good time to Chris Bosh is screwing with peoples emotions? Look, I get where you are coming from. It's aggravating to have people all up in your face asking you about your plans all the time, but show some respect you m----- f------ a-----. You know those people who you're screwing with?
They're the ones who make it possible for you to be paid an outrageous sum of money rather than to work some minimum wage job, so maybe you should back up the truck and appreciate them a bit more.
I'm trying to go back in my mind and think of three guys who were extremely popular, who managed to combine forces which in and of itself should have created something wonderfully popular, but instead completely assassinated their own brand and popularity.
To put this in perspective, they have turned Kobe Bryant, who was at a minimum an adulterer and possibly a rapist, into a hero. Think about that for a minute. These guys have lowered themselves to a status which falls beneath alleged rapist (which says something fairly horrible about fandom in general).
Should LeBron have gotten flack for leaving Cleveland? Not really. He
made Dan Gilbert a couple hundred million dollars. Gilbert should
certainly be upset that LeBron left, but LeBron didn't owe Gilbert or
Should Bosh be hated for leaving Toronto? No, heck, Toronto fans didn't
really seem to even want him anymore constantly calling him soft and
complaining about him.
Should Wade be hated for staying in Miami and recruiting talented
players to play with him? Heck no, that's exactly what I hope Derrick
Rose does in Chicago.
This story should have been so good. Three friends who came together, only caring about the championships rather than the individual accolades or maximizing the all mighty dollar. The story line is set to make them likable, and yet somehow, these guys have managed to take a situation designed to put them on a pedestal and come across as objects of disdain.
Sadly, they don't even qualify as respectable villains, because they come off as such insecure, ego-centric, douchebaggy cowards. You hate them, but also look down on them at the same time. I'm sure they're locked into their own little ego-centric bubbles too much to care, as well they should be.
However, for the rest of us, I don't know if the Bulls will beat the Heat, but I do know they'll be a lot easier to root for. Anyone is easier to root for now.
