    Lebron & Coachella 2010 are good choices.

    Disco & Apple deserve it.

    Pitchfork is a good one.

    Are we talking Titanic the ship, or the movie?

    The movie. I remember back in early 1998 everyone loved it, and spoke openly about seeing it multiple times. 6 months later you couldn't find a person on the planet who would admit to it.

    LeBron deserves the backlash for being a liar and a quitter.

    Obama on the other hand is getting blamed for a lot of crap started by the Bush administration.

    Hate to say it, but the Cleveland Organization brought it on themselves. The front office was delusional if they thought adding Mo Williams was enough to make Lebron stay. If he would have stayed in Cleveland he would have just become an old man with bad knees and zero championships.

    He deserves every bit of backlash thrown at him. Biggest traitor since Benedict Arnold & Judas Iscariot. Oh well its not like he actually is the basketball prodigy or king that he was made out to be.
