LeBron James is the #1 public sports enemy. Period. Everyone outside of Miami hates him. Especially, New York. He spurned the Knicks last off-season, always seems to put huge games together in The Garden, and now he’s a minority owner of the Fenway Sports Group. Yesterday, LeBron James became a minority owner of the Fenway Sports Group’s, Liverpool Soccer Club. FSG is partnering with James’ sports marketing firm, LRMR Branding & Marketing to promote the Liverpool Soccer Club.

The deal marks the first time that a professional athlete at the top of his sport has taken an ownership role in a club with the size and power of Liverpool. Liverpool is regarded as one of the world’s most premiere sports teams.

Blah, blah, blah. LeBron wants to be a global icon like Michael Jordan. Blah, blah, blah. I choke in the playoffs. Blah, blah, blah. I’m a Yankee fan, but I’m partnering with the Red Sox. Blah, blah blah. Hell, the Red Sox may not even win a game this season! At least James and the Red Sox have a few things in common. Over-publicized. Over-rated.

LeBron, listen. New York hates you. I hate you and you’ll never be Kobe, let alone Michael. Good for you and your little business with your high school buddies. Once you choke again in the playoffs, maybe you can try out to be Liverpool’s goalie. Or water boy. If he chokes there too (which has about a 90% chance of happening), he can always pitch for the Red Sox. It’d look a lot better than Jon Lester right now.
