I don't go in for heckling one's family, but in this case, LeBron's mom has been gravy-training his fame since he was in high school. For example, when he was at St. Vs, he smashed a backboard at another local high school during a tournament. When Gloria James requested the school let them have the rim as a memento, the school asked if LeBron would consider signing a basketball so that the school could auction it to get money to replace the smashed backboard. Instead of just saying "sure, we'll ask him to sign a ball" or "nah, that's okay, just keep the rim," she immediately ran to the papers crying about how the mean school wouldn't give them the rim as a keepsake. When she was able to buy her son a custom hummer for his birthday while he was still in high school and she was still living in Section 8 housing, she had no problem talking to the papers about how great it was that she could do something like that for her son, although she wouldn't say where she got the money.
If she were a private person who shied away from the spotlight, I'd be more offended. When you put yourself into the public eye, you kind of ask for it.
