Readin is Fun Da Mental

Far be it for me to ridicule a man who has made close to 100 million dollars before the age of twenty five, but then there is this article about Lebron James not being able to read the last line of a Dr. Seuss book to a class full of children.

This wasn't War & Peace or David Copperfield, but the challenging "Oh the Places You'll Go", a book who's recommended reading age is between 2-102. The line that got BronBron in trouble you ask?

"Be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O'Shea, you're off to Great Places!"

See kids, if you are a professional athlete reading is totally optional. Hell Lebron doesn't even cut his own steak, true story. Who needs to read, its the NBA people, all you need to be able to do is keep it real.

So put down that copy of Where the Wild Things Are, and stop with all that multiplication, and get outside and run some wind sprints. If Lebron has taught these school children anything, its that just because you have money doesn't mean you need to be able to pronounce words like "Buxbaum", you can hire someone for that.
