Clowney Influenced by LeBron? Ugh.

This will be my final Jadeveon Clowney-inspired post,at least until my next one. What brings me back to the topic is this puzzling quote from a Post and Courier story this morning:

“Clowney said he was influenced by NBA star LeBron James’ decision to televise his free agency destination this summer…”

Um…influenced? Influenced by the worst PR decision in the history of professional sports? Influenced by an event that turneda well-liked NBA superstar into perhaps the most hated man in professional sports?

I’m not trying to make anything out of this at all, I just found it a bit humorous. Let’shope JC gets his “influence” frommore positive sources and/or events from here on out.
