Legendary Nike designer Tinker Hatfield does not like working with LeBron's entourage
 
Hatfield rarely does interviews and guards his secrets closely. But he did a private appearance at a Miami shoe store last week in which he took some questions from customers. During the session, which was recorded and posted on YouTube, Hatfield said he stopped personally developing James’ signature shoes because he didn’t like dealing with those around James.

We have known for awhile. LeBron is a douche, his "entourage" is a crew of flunkies ... his mom is a drunken, ghetto whore. We know who he is at this point. His good image keeps receeding like dude's poor hairline.

:(

How am I wrong about his mother?

It's been proven, time after time.

She's a classy one.

Well, I'm going to hazard a guess that you don't rank as high at your job as he does at his.

He's earned his, lebronze's boys are only there because they are his friends. They didn't earn shit.

I'm willing to bet that Lebron is almost never talked to that way by people he actually works with. Lost of respect to Tinker for speaking his mind.

Of course, Tinker has worked with more significant people during his career.

still. theres a unwritten professional code that you dont leak out your complaints in public. anything more than that just makes you look bad.

Lebron's entourage is def ****ed up. They a bunch of kids. Although Nike's a shit company anyway so don't give a **** bout some designer that works for em.

Wow ISH, what a loser move. This story is well over 2 yrs old, goes back to when LeBron was a Cavalier. Either you are quite out of the loop as an NBA beat writer, or more likely, slow news day so you're just trying to throw some LeBron material out there.

LeBron should ditch the entourage.

It's fine to be friends but you shouldn't have your goof-off high school friends running your marketing/PR and dealing with companies like Nike and ESPN.

It's almost like they've made LeBron think he can't some how handle things without them.

For f-ck sake, they'd probably be lucky to get a job at Foot Locker without him.

The lot of them should've all been fired after "The Decision" debacle.
