Bigger jerk, Jon Jones or LeBron James?

     So I've finally accepted it. Jon Jones is a jerk. I held out past the pot snitching comments, autographing memorabilia as the champ before he fought Shogun, the drama surrounding Rashad including the fake injury, the horrible Bud commercial, the fake personality, all that, but then last weeks dougie video put me over the top. Not only is he combining his jerkness with reigning king of jerk Urijah Faber, but they are dancing in an RV w/ their shirts off! His facial expression remind me of non other than LeBron James.

     Both these guys seem completely uncomfortable in their own skin. It's understandable as they are both possibly the best athletes in their given sport and have achieved fame at a very young age. Both have natural ability that seems more of a gift than the result of hard work. I'm not saying these guys don't work hard but fact is Jon Jones climbed the mountain with 3-4 years of training and LeBron was a beast straight out of high school. It's no surprise that they are both lacking in maturity and seem extremely socially awkward. Jon Jones just seems to be trying to hard every time you read a quote or see him in front of the camera, it doesn't sound natural to me. LeBron managed to insult not just Cleveland, but the entire nation with the actions surrounding his departure, but to this day seems oblivious to the reasons why he is hated. It's one thing to be like Chael or Brock and push the fans buttons intentionally, but to be so clueless as to how and why you are perceived a certain way is shocking to me. Just look at LeBron's latest comments after losing the finals.

"At the end of the day, all the people that were rooting on me to fail . . . they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life that they had before they woke up today," James said. "They have the same personal problems they had today. I'm going to continue to live the way I want to live. . . . But they have to get back to the real world at some point."

Stephen Colbert responded best,

"Like they say, 'It's not whether you win or lose, but how you disparage the pathetic lives of the little people who make it possible for you to have a career bouncing an inflatable ball.' "

If these two were trying to be the bad guy I would be lmao, but neither of them are, they are simply jerks. So i ask you maniacs, who is the bigger jerk, LeBron James, Or Jon Jones?

{Disclaimer: I am still a fan of Jones in the ring and anticipate rooting for him against Rampage, I have nothing but respect for his fighting ability and consider him to be the future of the sport as well as a staple on my favorite fighters list. He just needs to shut his mouth.}
