This Comedian’s Video About LeBron James ‘Bandwagon Haters’ Is Brilliant (Video)
Bandwagon fans suck. You support a team through thick and thin, in good times and in bad. Then they get good, and all of a sudden you’re one in a million, and there is no easy way to differentiate yourself from the phonies.
It’s all too common, and it makes you want to punch somebody in the face.
You know what’s worse, though? Bandwagon haters. Being a lifelong fan takes commitment, but at least you can sustain yourself through the hard years with dreams of draft picks and future championships. Being a committed hater has no such palliative hope, because no indignity is sufficient humiliation for the object of your hatred. Thus you, the true hater, are an even rarer breed than the true fan.
So when a bunch of other people come along and claim they are haters too, the way people started hating LeBron James after the decision? That’s agony.
Comedian Matt Lieb knows all about that. He’s been burning LeBron jerseys (and saving the ashes) since the guy was in high school. But now he’s just one in a million, and it’s really starting to get to him.
I feel for you, Matt.
