The LeBron hate debate

I’ve written about this issue, sort of, here. Ethan Sherwood Strauss more directly tackled the phenomenon a couple days ago for Heat Index. It’s one of the hottest topics right now: what is the appropriate level of distaste for people who don’t like LeBron? Should we care that he is so reviled? What does it say about us as a nation of NBA fans?

There’s lots to read from all over the internet, but here’s a smart debate between HoopSpeak Live guest Dan Shanoff of Quickish and Strauss himself.

By the way, you can watch every second of HoopSpeak Live on the show’s Youtube channel.
