I’m sure everyone has heard about Arash Markazi’s write-up about LeBron James’ trip to Las Vegas by now, where he appeared to be taking hedonism to a whole new level. His comments about “girls with no panties” and his allegedly cocky behavior shouldn’t surprise anyone in the slightest, and ESPN has made this entire thing into a huge ordeal by getting bagged trying to pull the story before anyone could see it. Yes, the story makes LeBron look like a douche and ESPN adores him, as evidenced by the decision. But it’s nothing earth-shattering and it’s not like it was Ray Allen in Vegas poppin’ bottles with his boys and making crude comments to women.
From the looks of it, things had much more potential for getting out of control in Vegas than they did at the “Three Kings” party that was thrown in South Beach after LeBron and Chris Bosh made their choices official. Again, no surprise there. Maybe that’s why ESPN chose to nix the story, but at this point we can only speculate. A Deadspin reader happened to capture a bit of the party on camera out west, so here’s a few pictures of LeBron James partying in Las Vegas for those of you who are visual learners like myself:
Man am I really starting to despise this guy.
