Call me cynical, but I think he went over the top on purpose. Somehow the spotlight always has to be on him. So the guy hits a halfcourt shot, wins money, and everyone still talks about LeBron? Mission accomplished for James.
Right, there was a massive conspiracy in place, and lebron was sitting there ready to sprint out the minute this happened in case his master hook shot hitting plant hit his shot.
Come on man, I like to hate him as much as the next person, but i think the far more likely explanation is this:
The pressure is somewhat off. he won his title, he's enjoying the game again. which is scary for the rest of the NBA.
@bak i dunno man, i don't think this "steals the fans moment" it makes it all the more memeroable.
He would have been a blip on sportscenter at best. Now he got immortalized in this goofy, cool little endeavor, got to meet a great player, and this morning the Heat owner is tweeting out pictures of the guy partying with the team at a nightclub with some lovely ladies
I'd say the whole thing went over pretty well for him
