Lebron James: Race? Are You Kidding Me...?

Let me set the table for you by telling you that I probably wouldn't walk across the street to see an NBA game, even for free. It really isn't true basketball to me, just a random version of the original game. Give me the collegiate version any day. Now with that point made clear, I'll touch on a comment made by one Mr. Lebron James. He stated that all of the negative publicity he has received because of his staged announcement to sign with the Miami Heat, is because of race. Not greed on his part, but race on the part of the media and general public. Not his selfishness, but his race. Hey, we have plenty of race problems in America. If you don't think so, you might want to get your head out of the sand. However, I believe the infamous "race card" gets played far too often and unnecessarily. The reaction to James' decision had nothing to do with race. It had everything to do with a bad decision he made blowing up in his face.
