Good news for LeBron James! He's now only the sixth most hated professional athlete in America! That's down from second place on Forbes.com's list last year. Hell, as we've previously noted, he's no longer the most hated player in the NBA. That title now belongs to that guy who had exclusive access to Kim Kardashian's booty for 72 days.
Here's Forbes' full top 10. The percentage listed is the number of American sports fans who view the athlete unfavorably, according to polling:
1. Michael Vick (60%)
2. Tiger Woods (60%)
3. Plaxico Burress (56%)
4. Ndamukong Suh (51%)
5. Kris Humphries (50%)
6. LeBron James (48%)
7. Kobe Bryant (45%)
8. Terrell Owens (45%)
9. Alex Rodriguez (44%)
10. Kurt Busch (42%)
Hmmmm, so this list include eight African-American athletes, one Puerto Rican, and a white guy at the very bottom?
