    Oh wow, this guy is ridiculous. If any athlete, I don't care if he is black, white, brown, green, yellow, whatever....played for a team and for years while still under contract would market his free agency and say things like 'everyone should mark there calenders to july 2010' and then negotiate an hour special WHILE his team is in the playoffs to make an announcement and then play dumb and say he did it for the kids, and of all the boys and girls clubs, he chose greenwhich, where the median family income is multiple times that of elsewhere?

    This guy is a joke who just can't take it...

    -when he didn't shake hands, he said its because hes not a loser(I guess MJ kobe and all the other PROFESSIONALS before him were?)

    when he changed his number, he said its to honor michael jordan bc the is a student of the history of the game....so he changed his number no less to...6, so apparently student of the history of the game did not study julius erving or bill russell, the guy with the most rings and considered arguably the greatest by some too

    -when he crab dribbled....its only been a travel since the beginning of the league, he denied it, said its his signature move, and ofcourse the nba accommodated him

    and now this, says he would do it over again, and maybe race played a part...this guy and his 'marketing' team are jokes

    As one of the few black stars to make it in the NBA, he's going to have to deal with a different reality than everyone else. You just don't get it.

    Race was a factor in people thinking he is an egotistical douche bag? That's some stupid ****.

    Yes, it was -- just look at the lists of most liked and most disliked athletes

    I think race played a factor in the last presidential election.

    Yeah, race was definitely a factor since the majority of the NBA is black.

    Idiot...

    But probably not a relevant factor.

    yea the point is, if any color said that, than I would see the same thing, what he did and the way he acts, talking in 3rd person, etc etc is just the way of the douche, I don't care how he looks...he doesn't want to get that or any of his other msitakes

    While everyone is hating on him, he's making 16 mil for just showing up to practice.

    Hate all you want, but his reality what most of you dream of.

    I wonder if the love he received in years past is due to his race, too.

    By this, I mean that race had nothing to do with it. People loved him because of who/what they thought he was, and now they hate him for the same reason. And if you disagree with me, it's probably only because race has a factor in your evaluation of my opinion.

    all that video told me was that jalen rose is an idiot. IOW, nothing new here.

    he's defending lebron's cries of racism by saying "how can people be mad that he just wanted to win, they must be racist like lebron said!" in reality, no one is mad at lebron for that, people hate him because he ditched his hometown in order to stack the chips.

    what's funny is lebron thinks people are mad at him because he's black. but how does he explain why so many black fans also hate him now? hmm....
