Oh LeBron. Where so I even begin on this one. You give us all so many reasons to hate you. You make it so easy for NBA fans to hate you. Never before was there a measuring stick to determine who the most hated player was.
While most of us could surprise that LeBron would be the leading contender, there was no way to really verify it.
But there is now.
According to the most recent SportsInsider social media study, LeBron James is the most hated NBA player.
Sportsinsider’s research entails geotagged Twitter data from the past month, which in turn tracks negative mentions of the NBA’s players. The research showed phrases such as “I hate LeBron” or “LeBron sucks” are used to inform the data of the study. Over 70K hashtags and tweets were sifted through and the results determined that James is in fact the most hated player in the NBA in 24 different states.
Well known LeBron James critic and ESPN Analyst, Skip Bayless had the following to say on James being the “most hated” NBA player.
I couldn’t agree more with this. LeBron James is everything that is wrong with the NBA. In my own humble opinion, LeBron James is the load that his mother should have swallowed. That’s how anti-LeBron I am.

By the way, as far as the headline goes about his Mom. I can only imagine she thinks he’s a douchebag too. So let’s just assume she hates him as well.
