LeBron James has a lot of influence over a lot of different things. He’s got his legendary basketball career, for one. King James is also a Hollywood star. He’s a big time investor, too.

Former ESPN commentator Michelle Beadle says LeBron takes himself too seriously. She made a joke about Lebron’s “The Decision” special when James announced where he was signing at the end of his free agency. LeBron wanted her fired over it, according to The Spun.

“He did try to [get me fired]. I was like, ‘I’m honored I’m even on your mind. Thank you very much, sir. That’s a very weird place for me to be.

My stuff with him started off not personal. I made fun of ‘The Decision’ like 400,000 other talking heads did at the time. I think for some reason that was it. It wasn’t personal to begin, but now it will always be personal. It is what it is.

I’m very comfortable with not liking people. I think that’s what makes us all healthy. It’s the people who pretend they like everyone – you can’t trust them.”

If the story is true, it is one of the pettiest things a person could do. Everybody made fun of “The Decision,” just like Michelle Beadle said. Imagine if he tried to bury every person who commented on the special.
