LeBron James has become one of the most popular and recognizable sports figures in the country, which probably makes it tough for him go out in public. The Miami Heat star vented about that particular issue in a post on his official Facebook page late Sunday night.
“Man it’s hard to go out and have a good time these days! It’s cool though, it’s part of my life. Wouldn’t change anything(just saying). Been in the spotlight since I was 15. Sometimes u just wanna STOP!! But I refuse cause I have a commitment to the youth to inspire them!! That will keep me pushing forward and focused alone.”
While it’s unclear what happened to bother LeBron on Sunday night, we know that he has had issues with people getting in his personal space since the season ended.

We’re not trying to break out the violin of sympathy for one of the most athletically-gifted people in the world, but the lack of privacy is definitely a downside to being so famous.
