So, when Esquire writer Scott Rabb was recently banned from the Miami Heat locker room, there had to be a reason behind it. The culprit; Rabb’s tawdry tweets about Lebron James.
We get more from SB Nation:
You may not have heard of Scott Raab, but chances are, if you’ve ever read an Esquire in airport, you’ve read some of his work. He’s about as good as any writer around, which means he’s roughly 1,000 times more competent than 98 percent of sportswriters anywhere.
Alas, even though he’s writing a book about LeBron James and the Miami Heat (and the Cleveland Cavaliers), Raab has been denied credentials by the Miami Heat, a decision apparently supported by the NBA. And sure, it’s a completely fair decision, but I’d just like to say that Scott Raab hates LeBron James more than anyone I’ve ever seen, anywhere, and if criticism gets you banned in the NBA, at least Raab hasn’t been shy about it.
He can bring more justice in a night of tweeting than years of Adrian Wojnarowski’s screeds at Yahoo! or Bill Simmons’ work at ESPN. And no matter what you think of LeBron James, you should take the time to stand back and admire the masterpiece (of hatred). Because while the rest of us slowly soften our stance and move on, it’s kind of great to see a native Ohioan stick to his guns like this.
Like when LeBron was tweeting about the Jets-Browns game this past weekend:
But they haven’t quit. Look in the mirror, motherf***er. You’re a f**king loser and always will be. RT @KingJames Sanchez is wearing them down
Um, so it took the Heat about four weeks to get his credential removed? I guess that whole three business day thing takes awhile coming from Miami.
