Default Why are some americans so obsessed with "aphletes"?

When I read some of you guys, particularly Lebron stans, writing about that Zion bum I go

What is this ish about? You a grown man gushing over the physique of some kid?

Why don't you appreciate the skill, composure and cultural impact of maestros such as Kobe Bryant and Larry Bird.

It's like celebrating that some rapper can spit more words pr minute than Pavorotti.

People can and do appreciate both.
