LeBron James pictured moments before defending Greek austerity measures.
Washington, DC—LeBron James is a fiery competitor, both on the basketball court and in the court of European economics, too, apparently. And this was put on full display to the world last week when security had to escort a fan out of the stands after a heated exchange with the NBA player.
Rob Monroe, the fan in question, made a political and economical remark to James that James clearly didn’t agree with, causing the two to almost come to blows during a Miami Heat victory over the Washington Wizards.
LeBron James likes to express his feelings with sculpture. In the down time while the season was suspended he had this piece commissioned and placed.
Miami—After falling heartbreakingly short of proving all the haters wrong last season and winning an NBA Championship, basketball superstar LeBron James said he’s kind of excited to see the NBA lockout end so he can get going again on his pursuit of his elusive first championship trophy.
“See, now I know in my heart that I’m the greatest player of all time,” James said with a straight face. You really had to be there to appreciate the earnestness with which he uttered that sentence. Classic. “But some people, for whatever reason, they think I need to have trophies and championship rings to be the best.

It has been said this artist's impression of a proposed LeBron James statue is not to scale as it should be twice the size.
Miami—LeBron James said he doesn’t really understand the motivation behind the Dallas Mavericks insisting they actually play the best-of-seven NBA Finals, which are scheduled to start May 31st.
“I mean, they all saw my special last year (‘The Decision’ an hour-long LeBron love-fest that aired on ESPN last July that culminated with James stating he was leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers and taking his talents to South Beach to play for the Miami Heat),” James said. “They know I decided to come here to win a title. And to do that, we had to outplay Boston. Well, we beat Boston in round 2. Why is Dallas doing this?”
