LeBron James is on the cover of the September edition of SLAM Magazine. James is pictured wearing a championship T-shirt and holding a trophy from after the Heat won the NBA title. The big message on the magazine cover is “Hi Haters!”
The message seems to set a tone that the magazine will explore some of the hate LeBron received from the media. It’s a childish saying, but it’s the type of message that will entice LeBron fans to purchase the magazine. But what about LeBron? You figure he’d distance himself from such a vindictive title, right? Not so — he’s actually embracing it.
James tweeted a picture of the magazine cover and gave SLAM a shoutout. He accompanied his tweet with “#epic.”
Fair enough — LeBron earned the opportunity to slam his haters. But then he went totally overboard by tweeting this message immediately after. Yeah, LeBron was definitely feeling himself on Tuesday night.
Be careful, LeBron. Winning a title helped you gain a lot more fans, but nobody likes an arrogant champion. It’s all about being humble. Remember that.Google+
