LeBron James probably deals with more criticism than any other athlete in the entire country. It comes with being extremely talented and not compared to the likes of Michael Jordan since he came out of high school.
However, it seems like even James can be rubbed the wrong way when he sees certain sports personalities get too critical. One of them appears to be Michelle Beadle.
Beadle recently appeared on a podcast and revealed that James once messaged her about being ‘mean’ to him.
In that same interview, Beadle also revealed she believes James began disliking her after he made his infamous decision to sign with the Miami Heat.
“I made fun of ‘The Decision,’ and I was one of about a bazillion people that did,” she said. “… It was hilarious, and I remember I got a — this was a long time ago, I guess when I followed him, and I got a DM that was like, ‘Why are you so mean to me on television?’ And I just sort of laughed it off. I didn’t even think about it.”
She also found out that the Lakers star sent plenty of messages to those who had negative things to say about him.
“Of course, I took it personally, it was personal, he wanted me fired, he tried to do that,” she added. “But then I found out after the fact, when all of this sort of came out, I would get messages or texts or videos from people being like, that kind of s*** was happening to them too. He was super petty and he would try to have some sort of an effect, whether it would be small or whatever, just an effect.”
Ultimately, this is just one side of the story. LeBron would likely never speak about this.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
