When LeBron James had his celebration in Miami and proclaimed the Heat would win “not one, not two, not three, not four, not five, not six … not seven” championships, he was influenced by equal parts confidence and a desire to appeal to the home crowd. Had he been in an actual interview and faced by reporters, he probably would have hedged his bets and said the team will win some titles. Now, after the Heat lost to the Mavericks in the finals, LeBron has learned the art of self-deprecating humor:
That is the second time this summer that LeBron has made fun of himself. It’s a good approach for a man who was so conscious of his image that he once confiscated a potentially embarrassing tape. It’s OK to show you’re human, LeBron. It might actually help your appeal to the common man who you once so notoriously ripped.
As for McDonald’s, don’t get caught up in this Monopoly game. I once put on 15 pounds in five weeks searching for Boardwalk. Supersize this, supersize that — whatever got me the extra Monopoly cards. Took me until high school to finally drop that weight. Ugh, stay away!
