I don’t think I can think of a more appropriate person to rap this song. Fits him perfectly. Fits his hairline perfectly. He is whatever we say he is. Sure Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan might not be the types to dance around a locker room in a tight black leotard after only getting to the Finals. Maybe they wouldn’t have gone through the backfiring epic disaster that was The Decision and the Big 3 introduction ceremony. But Lebron’s not them. As ESPN’s Brian Windhorst points out, Lebron never really asked for guidance from those cats because he wanted to be his own man. No matter how dickish, selfish, unreasonably stubborn (shave your head, bro), self aggrandizing, and 4th quarter cowardly he is, THAT’S who he is. Flawed greatness.
And don’t kid yourselves: nobody wanted to see Paul Pierce and Ray Allen limp-chase the Thunder for 48 minutes anyway. Lebron/Wade/Bosh vs. Durant/Westbrook/Harden is a million times better series.
PS – This was the JAM back in the day. Eminem top 5 rapper all-time no question.
