Lebron James of the Miami Heat says he doesn’t care about his “haters”. That’s a bit odd considering he addressed his “haters” in multiple interviews after the Heat won their second consecutive NBA Championship and now the 2012-13 NBA MVP is taking the barking to Instagram.
The social media service who recently one-upped Vine in terms of video length received a bit of welcome, unexpected promotion from the King as he posted his first video on the service yesterday.
Some (read: many) will take James’ video as arrogant and cocky and well, it’s pretty hard not to. While the 28 year old James was probably just trying to have a little fun at the expense of people who’ve crapped on him, it didn’t exactly come off that way – especially when so many of James’ counterparts of whom he’s compared to (Michael Jordan, Tim Duncan, Kobe Bryant, etc) are known for being a bit more laid back/quiet in their quests.
Either way, it didn’t bother me personally but I’m sure it ruffled the feathers of more than a few.
