Joe Posnanski on Rooting Against LeBron

June 15th, 2011 by Colin McGowan

In the spirit of Tom’s post on wanting LeBron to fail, Joe Posnanski has posted his thoughts on why it’s fun to hate LBJ:

I don’t HATE LeBron James, the person, of course not. He has brought me great joy as a sports fan. I wish him all the happiness he can find in life. But I Clemenate LeBron James the player for all the reasons listed above and for various wordless reasons that come from the gut. I root for his team to lose. I root for him to miss the big shot. I root for these things with zest and gusto because it’s fun and sports are supposed to be fun.
