NBA Signing Day – The LeBron Saga Continues

Having time to sleep on it, I finally figured out a pop-culture analogy for this LeBron hysteria. This is eerily similar to the hype around Drake. Both are the young futures of their respective careers.

The LBJ of hip-hop?

Drake is the messiah that is supposed to save hip hop. He splashed onto the scene in early 2009 with “Best I Ever Had.” A few months later he inked with Lil Wayne and Young Money Records. Throughout 2009 and most of 2010, he dropped hit after hit. When it was time to produce, he came up short. His debut album didn’t even sell 500,000 copies in the first week. Meanwhile, the Kobe Bryant of the game, Eminem, drops his “Recovery” album a week later and sells almost 750,000.

Drake had all the hype, but Eminem sold the most. LeBron is the most exciting NBA player, but Kobe Bryant still won the championship.
