15 Most Spectacular Falls From Grace

11. LeBron James

He hasn’t had any run-ins with the law, any tawdry affairs that went public or had any fiery press conferences where he threw his teammates under a bus. No, his only crime was behaving like a horse’s ass, but it was more than enough to take him from one of the popular athletes in sports to one of the least popular. By airing a “Hey everybody, look at me!” press conference to deliver the news that he was leaving Cleveland for Miami, he showed a startling lack of class. Then, when he arrived in Miami, he was part of the type of spectacle that is usually reserved for winning something, not merely signing a contract. He became the equivalent of a face that turns heel in wrestling, stabbing his home city in the back to join a Dream Team of sorts, and in the process angering many of his fans. He is now probably the most loudly booed athlete in sports. —Johnny Goodtimes
