From the Archives: LeBron James Admits He Enjoys Speeding Through School Zones Just Because He’s LeBron James
CLEVELAND (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) Before traveling westward for Game 1 of the NBA Finals, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James got in a little “me” time. He enjoyed a thrilled-packed afternoon of illegal fireworks displays near a nursing home, and driving recklessly at high rates of speed through school zones.
“Just blowin’ off a little steam,” the All-Star forward chimed. “Some people like to listen to some jams, others toss back a cold one, or spark up a big ass fatty. LBJ likes to endanger the innocent with indiscriminant hi jinx just because I’m LBJ, dig?”
“Truthfully, I find it weak,” said former New York Jets quarterback, Joe Namath said of James’ exploits. “In my day before a big game, I’d flaunt my mink coat and Mercedes in front of the poor, before launching into a hellish evening of playing chicken with pedestrians.”
Years ago, Yogi Berra famously hijacked an army tank running over the wives of several Brooklyn Dodgers players.
