ESPN Mysteriously Pulls LeBron James Las Vegas Tell-All | WaitingForNextYear (http://www.waitingfornextyear.com/?p=31541)


From “apparently” nude women in bathtubs to pouring vodka on the floor of a Las Vegas nightclub, ESPN’s Arash Markazi penned a night-in-the-life discourse on former Cavalier LeBron James and his close friends. But just moments later, he didn’t.

After only several minutes of being a live link on ESPN’s Los Angelese affiliate site, the Markazi piece had inexplicably vanished. ...

(Update: Per CNBC’s Darren Rovell, ESPN claims that the draft of Markazi’s piece was “inadvertently published.” No word on if the image, caption and link to said piece were also inadvertent and if/when the surely to-be edited piece will hit the digital site)



Even though ESPN immediately moved to spike the story, the HTML version soon came out. Here it is:

Here is the text of the ad:


"To My Family, Friends and Fans in Akron:

"For all my life, I have lived in Akron -- and for that, I am truly a lucky man.

"It was here where I first learned how to play basketball, and where I met the people who would become my lifelong friends and mentors. Their guidance, encouragement and support will always be with me.

"Akron is my home, and the central focus of my life. It's where I started, and it's where I will always come back to. You can be sure that I will continue to do everything I can for this city, which is so important to my family and me. Thank you for your love and support. You mean everything to me."

He then signed "LeBron" at the bottom of the ad.
