The kids at ESPN are writing a script that the Heat are not able to live out. Like every story that should end happily ever after, they expect Lebron and his sultry knights to triumph over the "evils" of the NBA. They lost their mythical salient in Michael Jordan. And when Lebron and his precocious skills emerged, they crowned him King before he even stepped foot on the NBA hardwood. In all his skillful majesty, he lacked a supporting cast in Cleveland. He was excused of failure.
Then, the NBA establishment allowed for his elite supporting cast to line up. And the script writers were giddy. Like blushing junior high girls at a One Direction concert, they were magnetically drawn to their story. And in their overtly pueril banter they have drummed up a catatonic rhythm of drivel. Drivel that the intelligent readers see right through. No, we don't see your hero. We do not see your King. His entitled demeanor lacks fortitude. And while his skill has brought him victories. We do not see him as the chivalrous King. Their script is marked with a villainous odor. And we will not swallow it. The story is dry and that which the want to share as an antagonist, is our villain.
The dialogue of the media is beyond ridiculous. Everything was looked at through the eyes of what the Heat were and were not, and not as it actually was. That the Pacers are the cure to the curse of Lebron. And I am not a hater of him as a player. And I think he has matured. Now this goes goes beyond one person. ESPN and their lack on integral journalism has tainted the sport long enough. They created hype for their profit and young men are victims. So they spin their stories as a spider spins its web. They trap unintentional "fans". But the storyline is tremendously unctuous. They have their heron and we have our villain. It may not be the person Lebron, but it sure is their fictitious "antagonist".
