DENVER — Who you calling stupid….dumb-ass?

King James and King George just don’t get it do they? Apparently Lebron James believes it’s acceptable to discuss the next team he’ll physically prostitute himself for. What possibilities and opportunities lay ahead in a major market for NBA/pop world superstars like himself.

James doesn’t find it insulting the guys he goes to war with every game nor the family of four forking out 200 dead presidents…. to discuss the championships and millions he’ll be racking-in once he gets out of the Mistake-by-the-Lake.

On TNT’s “Inside the NBA” show Thursday, the Round-Mound-Of-Rebound criticized James for entertaining questions about 2010 earlier this week in New York, New York, (so nice they named it twice…)

“The outside forces should never affect your locker room,” Barkley said. “I think LeBron has made some of the right comments, but he hasn’t made the perfect comment. He still alienated 11 guys in his locker room.”

“What I mean by that, he hasn’t said, ‘We are 12-3 right now, we are a championship-caliber team and we are going to win multiple championships here while I’m here, period, end of story.’ ”

The comments echoed what Sir Charles said on Dan Patrick’s radio show on Wednesday – “If I was LeBron James, I would shut the hell up.”

He’s stupid. That’s all I’ve got to say about that,” King James said Friday night before the Cavaliers’ game against Golden State.

James did graduate from high school right? His technique…is weak. Maybe Leaa’ Brohn is yet another child, another man-cub who was left behind.

Which brings to mind outgoing King George, who recently in an interview with his sister, offered this jewel – “I think the No Child Left Behind Act is one of the significant achievements of my administration because we said loud and clear to educators, parents and children that we expect the best for every child, that we believe every child can learn, and that in return for Federal money we expect there to be an accountability system in place to determine whether every child is learning to read, write, and add and subtract….

Note how W., the older fool, at least tried to elaborate, spell out his mindless, baseless assertions, while James demonstrates he is the younger, lesser experienced fool with his simple minded “He’s stupid” defense….

The Ivy League male-cheerleader went on to say, because of his administration’s No Child Left Behind policy, the “achievement gap” between white children and African-American and Latinos is “narrowing.”

That’s a big-ass White lie.

How can Little lord Flat Bush claim advancement, as he pulls the rug out from underneath the very same folks he’s claiming to be helping? My momma may have raised some ugly kids, but she sure as hell didn’t raise any dumb ones.

You can’t undermine the very elements of civilization – an enlightened, academically curious citizenship by permitting those with all the gold, to make the rules, and that’s exactly what Bush did with remarkable success – continue the Ronald Ray-Gun Revolution, erase the checks and balances of regulation, let the aristocrats govern themselves, allow the Trickle Down Theory to become the law-of-the-land to the point of …he we all stand, facing a economic depression which will make the Great Depression look like we merely lost our wallets.

You can’t sabotage, subvert from the schools, and then spend 8 to 10 billion dollars a month in Iraq, and talk to me about tightening the belts of schools. If you do that, if you take the tools to obtain the fabled American dream……you get more and more full grown kids like Leaa’ Brohn James. (I just like saying it like that, like he’s a royal Black Frenchman)

He’s stupid, this deep incite comes from a cat who is the product of Reagan’s America, he’s clearly an vivid example of what happens when, from the top down, the mentality is…God is money, money is God…

His momma did take out loans before he graduated high school, purchased a Hummer… Why? Why does middle class Black America – spend more on their car notes, than they put aside for their child’s college expenses?

What have we bought into.

The Stupid summation is seriously lacking, not to mention wrong.

Chucks right – “LeBron James is one of my favorite players, but he’s been 100 percent wrong in this situation Barkley said. “It’s unfair to the city of Cleveland and it’s unfair to the Cleveland Cavaliers team. If it was a year away it would still be unfortunate. I wish he would sign a lifetime deal with the Cavaliers.”

For James to not understand this illustrates the lack of Obamaism – class, tact, and decorum- which is dreadfully missing from his character. Missing from his peers, from his generation of unwashed masses. It’s an illness plaguing his generation, with it being of epidemic proportions amongst those with money.

From the Hilton Hoe’s’ on, far-too many young celebrities …. they just don’t get it…. They don’t understand who butters their bread. The little people….

James didn’t get that when he declined to sign a petition started by a teammate regarding the Chinese government‘s alleged involvement in the ongoing conflict in the Darfur region of Sudan, stating that he did not know enough about the issue….

How do you keep a secret from a Black Athlete? Put it between the covers of a book – he’ll never look there.

Recall the criticism James received from Cleveland fans and sports writer for attending the Cleveland Indians games against the New York Yankeesdressed in a Yankees hat.

James said,”As individuals I want every Indian to succeed. I love all these fans for coming out and supporting us. But team-wise I want the Yankees to win.”

That sort of backward ass thinking is fine and dandy if you’re not a sports icon, representing the hopes and aspirations of a franchise….Dah! King James doesn’t get this?

It was more important to show the world that you too… are a Yankees fan.

Fortunately, the King did jump on the Obama Bandwagon, hosting a rally or two, giving 20 gees, the maximum allowed…so there is hope, but I’m worried about this big fellah.

I think sportsfans are going to have to endure the maturation process of another boy, who want’s to be king, and it’s not going to be pretty. At least King James can’t let the levees break, or declare war on another nation…..
