There seems to be a new breed of ballplayer around. Starting with last year's campaign, more and more basketball players came out and publicly endorsed Barack Obama. Now, it turns out LeBron James, who has aspirations of becoming a "global icon," doesn't have much respect for George W. Bush.
[INTERVIEWER]: If there was one guy on the planet you could dunk on, who would it be? That teacher?
[JAMES]: If it doesn’t have to be a basketball player, George W. Bush. I would dunk on his a**, break the rim, and shatter the glass.
People who still support George W. Bush buy shoes too. Will this help James' aspirations of becoming a corporate legend, or will he become the new leader of athlete, the one that doesn't shy away from politics?
