Co-sign. Lebron to an extent, ie. the tatts, but what he says off the cuff isn't much to go by. If someone sticks a mic in your face and says "speak", some stupid $hit is bound to come out, because you haven't had the time to think. The whole "I am the leader" thing was probably never intended to sound the way it was received
Shaq's arrogant because he can be, and you have to be honest, he's quite funny when he makes fun of ther players. Lebron is just confident, he doesn't make fun of other people like Shaq does, Kobe is straight arrogant, because he still thinks he can win a chip without Shaq, just ain't going to happen! Carmelo is arrogant, taking all of USA's shots, of course he lead the team in scoring he took more than half the shots!! I don't know why he's still on the team, they could've replaced him with someone like VC!!!! then the USA will have VC dunking over 7 foot white people again YES!!!
Gary Payton still in the league right? He's the arrogance legend. No one beats that guy. Screw a few tatoos and a dumb comment. As much drama Kobe has caused in his career, you guys get one Lebron for 3-4 tats and a comment in an interview?
...everyone else mentioned (aside Duncan) competes for 3rd.
