LeBronze James. At first I liked the kid, but the more he succeeds, the bigger his head gets. I can't stand him now. He needs a really humbling season, maybe a lotto season, to bring him back down to earth.
LeBron. Shawn Marion <--- Meet him in person. He's pretty much an asshat.
Yeah, Marion is real cocky. Bron has his moments, but a truly cocky baller doesn't bow down to any adversity or player(he's too proud for that), and there's still a few times when if the game isn't going his way he lets it get to him. That's what made people take notice of Iverson, he didn't care who you were on the court, and that included living legends like Jordan, which angered a lot of people like Barkley. They felt he should bow down and let the "big boys" run things.
That resulted in everybody in the league deciding to knock him around until he couldn't get up. But Iverson never stayed down, and now everyone respects him and says he's got mad heart, even the ex-****** like Barkley. Now nobody calls him cocky as much, because he's proven himself. We'll probably stop calling Bron and Arenas cocky once they've reached a level where we've got nothing else to say.
Truth be told, Wade has some cockiness too, but nobody really says that because he's proven himself. Getting the blessing from Shaq himself saying it's Wade's team doesn't hurt either.
