LeBron James State Farm Commercial: “Get to School”

  • Jason Whitney

LeBron James’ newest commercial that premiered Christmas day was of him being an advocate of waking up and getting to school. Although King James never actually says anything about going to school, or staying in school during the State Farm commercial, all signs point towards that message.

I find this particularly funny seeing that LeBron, never for a moment, seriously considered college. In high school, he and his posse paraded around like rock stars or at least that’s what he says in his book.

I’m not a LeBron hater, in fact I think he’s the best player in the NBA, but I find this commercial odd in many ways. LeBron, by accounts that cannot be verified, carried a 2.8 grade point average in high school. Most of his teacher’s testaments of LeBron were of this nature, “LeBron tried really hard,” or “LeBron wasn’t a perfect student but he participated in class.” Hardly sounding like a kid who flourished in school, better yet one who probably knew what was on the horizon for him.

Love the message but I just find it ironic. Take a gander at this video and tell me what’s the first thing you think…

  • I don’t understand the irony in the commerical. Did Lebron James not graduate from highschool? The message has nothing to do with being a “straight A” student or the valedictorian of your highschool but, rather staying the course and earning a degree. Once again, Lebron can’t do anything right…

  • I don’t see anything wrong w/ this. Maybe he’s telling us we all can’t be mammoth successes like him after high school by imitating him. Maybe he wants us to know that we can’t all be Lebron James so we shouldn’t waste our lives living it out and not thinking about our future.

    • No clue what your saying with that LOL…I highly doubt he’d be that egotistical in a commercial to suggest not everyone can be a mammoth successs like himself…I don’t really find it a problem with the commercial, I just think it’s fairly common sense to assume that it’s easy for LeBron to come off and say how important school was because he was 6’9 and could run like a wideout and jump out of the gym with skils for days. What do you think LeBron would have been doing it he wasn’t gifted? I doubt he’d be following that message as you’d have to be dellusional to think he wasn’t pushed through high school, and let’s be honest it’s not hard to graduate high school and now a days you need more than a high school education to be successful in most cases. I know this because not for one second did he even consider college nor has he went to college since he graduated…It’s a publicity thing and he’s getting a nice coin out of doing it…

  • Reminds me of freddy pullin somebody into his world. Kinda creepy
