After LeBron James' Speeding Ticket, Experts Claim He's Not Immortal


chosen1.jpg On the front page of today's Plain Dealer, tucked below a hard-hitting story on network television's recent reliance on reality programming, was a shocking story about Cavaliers star LeBron James. Contrary to popular belief -- not to mention the tat on his back -- James, the PD claims, is as susceptible to injury, and even death, as you and me. James, you probably heard, was nabbed for speeding recently. He was racing down I-71 at 101 miles per hour in his white Benz, license plate: KNG OF AK. We know what you're thinking: Why wouldn't he? After all, if he spins out of control and slams into an oncoming Volvo, he'll obviously just ricochet off the sedan, continue to the hoop, and slam it home. And one, baby! Sure, a family of four might get offed in the process. But that's a small price to pay for LeBron getting his beauty rest, right? Yeah, we were thinking the same thing. But according to the PD, a collision at 101 mph is something even LeBron couldn't survive:
Under Ohio law, (James) would also have four points on his license. Safety experts said those are the least of James' problems. Excessive speed, even by a world class athlete, poses an increased danger.
Now we're not vouching for these experts. But if this is true ... wow. Who knew? -- Joe P. Tone
