When superstars flop, the NBA turns a blind eye.
LeBron James has help in building his legend of being an invincible superstar at the peak of his powers when the referees side with him on every call.
Alas, LeBron seems to be the last one who has caught on to the conspiracy to make him a loveable idol of the NBA.
It may be the NBA's great misfortune that the best they can come up with as a representative of the high quality character of players is LeBron James.
For years now the league has been building the heroic stature of LeBron James after his disastrous departure from Cleveland to make the NBA more money in Miami.
So, now in the playoffs, the Chicago Bulls, minus their marquee player Derrick Rose, are making a run at the vaunted Miami Heat. And the Heat are staggered that anyone has the temerity to challenge them.
The referees have their marching orders: nothing is to prevent General Sherman LeBron James from marching all the way to the championship. He needs to pick up about six more rings-and the clock is ticking.
As city upon city is alienated from the integrity of the game of basketball as played by the NBA, we begin to wonder who will be left to watch the charade and the parade of LeBron James.
How can we be so naïve to believe that there are not a million gullible fans (mostly children or men with child-like IQs) that will continue to be amazed by the orchestrated bulldozing of LeBron James.
In the meantime, the NBA is leading the sing-a-long of "Marching Through Georgia."
