When Lebron let the world know that he was going to sign with the LA Lakers, it was obvious that winning championships was no longer viewed by him as the most important thing to him at this point in his career. Honestly, I agree with him. As a fan it is difficult to realize, but Basketball is just his job. He does it for a living and uses it to feed his family. Now that he is assured his family will be fed for a couple generations or so, LeBron has started to live his life how he wants to, not how basketball fans, Gm’s, or coaches want him to. This has brought us a completely different LeBron than we have ever seen.
Lebron is, as the kids are calling it, “Wilin’ out”. The dude is just doing whatever the fuck he wants. Every day you go on twitter, you see something that lebron did that if it had been done 2 years ago would be absolutely bizarre, but now it is just a regular tweet. Remember when Lebron did that one movie with Amy Schumer, Train Wreck? People talked about that A LOT. NOw it seems like every day i see a new show that Lebron has produced, or a movie that he has a side role in. Lebron is slowly, but surely ensuring that after he retires from basketball, he will have a spot in Hollywood as an actor. To be honest, he’s not even a terrible actor. I liked him in Train Wreck. With that being said, acting is not the only thing that we are seeing different.
Once known for how careful and deliberate he is with the media, Lebron just told a room full of reporters that his sons drink wine. I’m not positive but i think the one is like 12 years old or something. Him saying that is definitely something that so many people will overreact on, and I love it. I will be following along and making all of these people the entire way. Besides that thought, Lebron also just performed on stage with drake (https://twitter.com/barstoolsports/status/1051493232293675019). This video is hilarious to me. Lebron is not a good dancer, he is okay, but he is so hype. ALL THE TIME. Any video he posts of himself listening to music, you would think he wrote it.
So, my thoughts on this. It is obvious he is trying to redo his early 20’s. Sure Lebron probably had a better early 20’s than most of us, but he did not live it up to his potential. He was so scared of ruining his image. He was known as a great guy, and he loved that, but now that he knows that he can act up a little bit and still be seen as a role model human being, he is living it up as much as his wife will let him. I mean he even has a rap song released with Kevin Durant. I mean, C’mon.
