Might as well give my two cents on Lebron too…

Aiight, everyone else has something to say about where Bron Bron is going to play next season, so I figured I’d get in on the conversation before he announces his new team on “The Decision” tonight on ESPN.

Real talk: I really don’t give a sh*t where he plays next year.  Dude is gonna get his money, hopefully get a ring, so on and so forth.  No hate from YAKWII.  He’s not going to the Celtics, so where he’s going doesn’t benefit me so I really don’t care where he plays.

What I’m concerned about is this little press conference/circus that’s happening tonight.  Bron is doing a little good for the community and is donating the sponsorship money brought in from this event to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.  Great!  Awesome!  You the man!

HOWEVER, why has no one talked about the fact that he’s holding his press conference at the Boys & Girls Club in Greenwich, Connecticut?  If you’re not familiar with Greenwich, let me school you real quick:

Population: 61,000

Racial makeup: 90% white, 1.6% African American, .09% Native American, 5.18% Asian, .03% Pacific Islander, 1.46% other and 1.57% mixed race.

Wealth: $117,857 median household income, $168,779 median family income

Here are some stats on the Boys and Girls Club of America:

Mission: To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

Membership: 65% are from minority families.

So this was the ONLY Boys and Girls Club Bron could find to this press conference?  One located in a community whose demographics are nowhere close to those of the Boys and Girls Club of America?  A community where the median incomes are over $115K?  Really??  Ok.

I know the money will go to the national headquarters and then will be distributed out to clubs across the country, but this is the only location that was available?  In one of the richest towns in America?  Really?  Poor execution, kid.

Best of luck to you.
