Chuck Powell: Why does everyone hate LeBron?

Another NBA season has come and gone. The Miami Heat are back-to-back world champs, following a seven-game NBA Finals victory over the San Antonio Spurs.

The city of San Antonio, which is as passionate as any fan base in the NBA, begins the long road toward accepting that their Spurs treated them to another great season, even amid their disappointment over coming up so very short of another title.

Why do so many people hate LeBron James?
