LeBron James to ‘Haters’ in Instagram Video – ‘That S#(@ Stank, Don’t It?’

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.

    The American media kills me. When a Black man or woman excels or performance at an unbelievable level, or
    performance a spectacular feat, whether in sports, politics, or any other area of society, ‘You’ want us to be humble, quiet, take a bow and move on. While others are celebrated for their arrogant, temper tantrum, chair-throwing, lunatic, insane behaviors. From Billy Martin to Bob Knight to John Wayne to Clint Eastwood to George W. Bush, American loves abrasive, in your face men ‘white’ men. But to see Jack Johnson, Muhammad Ali, Lebron James or Barack Obama behavior in these ways is something America can
    not, or will not tolerate.

    Your story is just more of the same rhetoric that people have been hearing for years so that Blacks don’t think of themselves as equals. You’re right, we are not equal. Sometimes we’re better.

    He addressed them because the reporters asked him about the “haters.
