|"Don't get mad because the kid has ears bruh!"|
LeBron James, "The Chosen One" appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated February 18, 2002 his junior year in high school. Going on to become a three-time "Mr. Basketball in Ohio and was highly promoted in the national media as a future NBA superstar.
Not only was he labeled the greatest high school player we've ever seen. He later became the number one pick in the 2003 NBA Draft and signed a lucrative Nike shoe deal worth $90 million before signing his NBA contract as I've stated in previous articles. He’s since lived up to all of the hype.
The media put the heart into the monster and now they’re terrified that the creature lives. I constantly hear people saying that they don't like this kid because he's arrogant etc. I don't see that from him but if he were, what would you expect him to be if you've told him that he was the best you've ever seen since he was 14 years old. Words are powerful and you can speak life or death into peoples lives with them. Even the word of God says, "The tongue has the power of life and death, and those that love it will eat its fruit." Proverbs 18:21.
That's like getting upset with the cosmetic 10 for thinking that she's fine when you've been telling her that she is her entire life! So when she walks past you with a stank attitude understand that you created the monster bruh! You can't hoot and holler at her and kiss the ground she walks on for 20 years then expect her to have a great personality in the end. It doesn't work that way.
He was smart enough to listen to the what people said about him and believed it. Now that the monster is fulfilling its destiny people have the audacity to hate it bruh. Shame on you! I believe that if we spoke more positive words into our children’s lives they would turn out to become more productive people in the end.
How many times do you hear parents speaking death into their children's lives, especially their little boys, by telling them that they'll never become anything or that they'll become a dead beat just like their father's etc. Let's use LeBron as an example of what speaking life and value into a person's life will do.
Even though he was raised in an unstable home without a father the words that have been spoken into his life have resulted in his success because he believes that he's worthy of success. Would you rather he'd failed so you could have something to talk or write about? Would you rather he'd come into the league and became a bust or been some idiot that’s always in the news for getting into trouble?
I know you would, but words are powerful and he only heard those that were positive for more than ten years so now those that are negative can't penetrate his mind because he's conditioned to only absorb those that give him life. That's why all of the venom that has been spit his way hasn't effected him this year. So therefore, he and his teammates are still alive in the Eastern Conference Finals and he's just won his 3rd league MVP. Remember, words have given life to the monster and I'm happy to see him succeed!
Holla At Ya Boy!!
