Trolling or Not, LeBron James is Doing it Right

What a confusing time to be a Boston Red Sox fan. What was once a city so dedicated to, so unified by, so soulfully committed to disliking LeBron James, now must root for his success as a new part-owner of the Boston Red Sox. That’s tough. I doubt LeBron and his business associates are investing millions of dollars into the franchise just to troll Bostonians, but c’mon now. LeBron sees every angle; he knows exactly what this looks like.

Like I said, though, there’s no way this is just a troll-job. LeBron and Maverick Carter saw a lucrative business opportunity in owning a partial stake in the organization and acted upon it. James has been very public about his entrepreneurial ambitions after his playing career is over, which include owning an NBA team. This could be a way to both get his feet wet and build up capital in preparation for that endeavor. It’s a good move.

Sorry, Sox fans.

Time To Root For LeBron, Boston

It’s time to embrace LeBron James, Boston. It’s just time. Long have you rooted for his demise. Long have you claimed to represent the antithesis of everything negative associated with him (pettiness and whininess, as opposed to Boston’s signature brand of directness and toughness). Now is when you bury the hatchet and let LeBron James into your life by way of Fenway Park. It’s time.

I do not dislike LeBron, as seemingly everyone in New England does. Every time I’ve rooted for him, he has either granted my wishes or come damn near close on the back of a supernatural performance. The man is successful at pretty much everything he does, and I’m sure entrepreneurship will be added to that ever-growing list. Don’t be afraid to root for him, Boston. The Sox are in a bit of a funk right now. Maybe they need a jolt from the King, the newest member of their ownership group.

LeBron James and the city of Boston, united through the Red Sox. What a world.
