LeBron James

Most Valuable Loser

6/17/2009 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Overcompensation -- noun -- excessive reaction to a feeling of inferiority, guilt, or inadequacy leading to an exaggerated attempt to overcome the feeling ... especially when someone expected to win the NBA championship doesn't even make the finals.

LeBron James: Click to watch
LeBron James rocked this egotistical t-shirt during a shopping break in N.Y. yesterday.

For the record -- you won't see Kobe Bryant wearing a shirt with his individual accomplishments plastered on the front of it during his championship parade today -- he's gonna let the trophy do the talking.

why you people can give lebron a break, he's not doing anything bad, please he's just wearing a T-SHIRT and the shirt isn't telling anything false its true he's the mvp, and if he wants to wear that shirt or make a movie about how good is he, that's his business, it's LEBRON JAMES he can do whatever he wants.
And why you dont talk about how kobe always is saying that he's the best and wearing t-shirt about his 4 rings, ah, that is worst cause he isn't the best no matter how many times he wants to tell the world, he's always crying like a baby every play that he can't score, that's not be the best, the game 2 of the final series lal vs orl, that game hedo block to kobe a pass and they say that it was a foul, for god, kobe have to reconize that it was a block so kobe doesn't deserve ahve that 4 ring

If you are a Clevland Cavs fan and you still think its cool that he is in NY shopping, well you might want to remember this day. Because as soon as he can leave the Cavs, he will jump ship like it is a plague infested sinking trash barge. He has absolutely no class at all. He is a spoiled little brat. The King of Losers. He should change his name to Court Jester.

WhitePplAreLame    

I'm not a racist, but this article expresses how lame whites are..

Wow @ comment #4 by Cory.. ''i accepted that he has 4 kids out of wedlock''

LMAOOO! So it's to the point where people are judged for having children while not being married? Wow.. who are you again? God? LMAOOOO, White ppl are soooo hilarious

and then theres the idiots who continue acting like Kobe raped that white girl when they find another man's semen, and different strands of pubic hairs in her panties.. NEITHER BEING KOBE'S!

How delusional the white society is.. they hate seeing the black man win

He can wear what ever he wants to wear. whats the big ****ing deal some of you are so stupid, honestly you dont dislike him because of a dumb shirt, your just jealous because your not him nor will you ever be him. so what i would suggest is get a ****ing life, find something else to do with your time rather than hating on people you dont even know because its kinda sad.

Lebron is a selfish player. He wants everything to be about him. that's what happened in the playoffs. he just quit on his team. I don't know how people say he's the best player in the league. Kobe is the best. enough said.
