Can LeBron James Please Just Disappear from Planet Earth?

LeBron James inadvertantly kicked Nets fans in the juevos again last night when he offered his opinions on league contraction and brought up a few players who would be better off elsewhere:

“Imagine if you could take Kevin Love off Minnesota and add him to another team and you shrink the [league]. Looking at some of the teams that aren’t that great, you take Brook Lopez or you take Devin Harris off these teams that aren’t that good right now and you add him to a team that could be really good. Not saying let’s take New Jersey and let’s take Minnesota out of the league. But hey, you guys are not stupid, I’m not stupid, it would be great for the league.”

The idea of league contraction is a legitimate one that I’m sure is going to be hardily debated going forward. With that said, LeBron James, the alleged face of the NBA, should not be one of the people advocating for it, especially after the stunt(s) he pulled over the summer. This is the time of year where you’re supposed to be grateful and think happier thoughts, so let me just leave my opinion at this: if the title of this post were to come true, I would not shed a single tear for this egomaniacal jerk, who must truly, actually believe he’s the center of the universe, because there’s no other explanation for his behavior.
