The "king" drives as fast as he wants and the cops let him. The "king" has 2 children out of wedlock and everybody thinks that is great. The "king" is lucky that he wasn't born in the 50's.

If people are so concerned about other drivers speeding, why not just make cars that will only go the speed limit. I think it was done before with a car called Yugo.

I see. It's true, I did not happen to read that other guy's stupid post so your Klan reference was lost on me, right over my head, apologies. I like your Tom Brady comparison... something about Tom Brady makes me think he's a big giant bastard once you get to know him.

Once again King James shows what a "great guy" he is. First, he sits out half a season with a "pinkie" injury, wearing his bling bling and hob-nobbing with the stars from the bench, now he runs his car over 100 miles an hour, and laughs about it. Yes, Ohio, you have a great son there. A great son.

Another knuckle head born every minute on this site....we'll take him, as 31 other teams would in a second....he contributes many $$$ into the local economy and with his time supports many charities in Akron & Cleveland area....as a 23 year old kid he seems to be doing very well considering the start he got in life...perhaps you need to keep these things in perspective !

No more speeeding, it is unsafe. your car can go 150 but the roads are safe only up 70 mph, and the legal speed limit is 65 MPH..also the other drivers cannot cope with another vehicle going 150 MPH, they just cannot react well enough to avoid you!

Save yourself for the Cavs and your children....

Lebron can drive as fast as he wants......in his own private driveway. This is a public road, and the roads in the Cleveland area are not designed to be driven at over 100 mph. You can bet if it was somebody else driving and they hit Lebron or any of the beloved Browns, Cavs, or Indians players everybody would be calling for their heads. Unfortunately the uneducated morons on here think that because some people think he was driving too fast that it's a personal attack on him. It's not, it's an attack on his driving and he needs it.

yes he should contribute..... to the taxpayers of akron oh--guess who paid for him and his mother before he made it big? and if the other 31 teams want him lets hope he takes them up-- and as for the speeding ticket--what..? he can't afford to have limo service pick-him up at the airport? he sets a find example to the young people in the world--go ahead speed laugh about but don't care if you may have killed some one in your haste to get home--perhaps some one else was going the speed limit and wanted to get home just as soon as he did --but would he care noooo.... because he's that way just a walkin'talking ass...hole....

you know--if he had been injured or (heaven forbid..) killed i would not weep for him--i'm sorry that this is my feelings about this jerk..but he is doesn't have common sense about this kind of reakless driving...had that been joe public ...would he laugh about if he had injured someone else or even himself?go back to NY where your heart seems to be and leave th driving to some one else.

What a horrible ******* article. He has a 400hp? benz he can drive 100 mph. Ive driven over 100 atleast 50 times in my 5 year stint of being a drive, never gotten a ticket OR been in an accident. For we people that know how to drive its safer for us to drive 100 on an open interstate in a performance vehicle than any woman or person on a cell phone driving around town..... you for emphasizing 101 you haven't lived if you havent went "101"

Anyone posting here ever driven a REAL automobile totally and safely capable of those speeds and then some?? What LeBron was driving is one of those autos. It was late, probably no-one on the road anyway - if you're gonna do it - that's the time to do it - less chance of harm to others. In my mind he was just getting to the interesting part of the car's capabilities - too bad he didn't get to 150 - that's when the real fun begins. You Go LeBron!

They are made to drive that fast........but not on Cleveland highways. There is a reason the speed limit is what it is.....idiots.

Mebbe our sacred dinosaur Goodyear should give sacred cow LBJ the keys to the test track on Seiberling. Push that baby to 200. Experience the rush out of (our) harm's way.
