What's Next?? Lebron James admits to marijuana use in high school

New, comments


The LeBron James bad P.R. tour continues to roll along this summer with this latest tidbit.  According to a new book, "Shooting Stars", written by James, along with Buzz Bissinger, James admits to feeling the pressure of being a 17-year phenom after being featured on the cover of SI.

James discusses how he and his ASVSM teammates smoked the marijuana in an Akron hotel room during their Junior year.

LeBron went on to discuss how all the attention affected him and his team -

"We had become big-headed jerks, me in particular," James said, "and we are to blame for that, but so are adults who treated us that way and then sat back and smugly watched the self-destruction."

Of course, this another NON-NEWS STORY that will be blown out of proportion by media types that seemingly forgot any and every youthful transgression during their high school years.
