There are lot of things to be mad at in the world. Not being able to watch the Super Bowl because you have to work and make hundreds of thousands of dollars while doing it isn’t one of those things to complain about.
Apparently LeBron James didn’t get that memo, on Wednesday he described having to play on the Monday after the big game as disgusting to the Sun Sentinel.
“‘How disgusting is that?’ he said after Wednesday’s shootaround at the Barclays Center prior to the game against the Brooklyn Nets.
The Heat cannot delay their return from Toronto, with a Monday game at AmericanAirlines Arena against the Charlotte Bobcats.
‘If the Cowboys were in the Super Bowl, I’d stay there for the game,’ he said of his passionate football rooting interest.”
Poor LeBron, right, I can only imagine the 4-5 million people without jobs would hate to trade places with you.
Sometime athletes forget how privileged they are, while I get what LeBron was saying sometimes you have to watch what you say. When you make millions to play what fans view as ‘just a game’ you complaining about work doesn’t go over well. I’m pretty sure someone will dvr the game for him so he won’t miss any of the funny commercials.
