When you have nothing to say, sometimes you grab for anything.  In being interviewed, LeBron called Braylon Edwards childish for allegedly hitting a friend of his.

BEREA, Ohio (AP)—LeBron James called Browns receiver Braylon Edwards(notes) “childish” for allegedly punching James’ friend early Monday morning outside of a Cleveland night club.

James said Edwards punched Edward Givens, a friend of James’ and a promoter with a Cleveland marketing firm who was working outside the club around 2:30 a.m. EDT.

The world does not revolve around you Lebron.  In fact a lot of people just dont care and are not jealous of you.

“I’ve never crossed paths with Braylon before, but it seems like there’s a little jealousy going on with Braylon and me and my friends. I have no idea why,” James said. “I’ve never said anything to Braylon at all. But for him to do that is very childish. My friend is 130 pounds. Seriously. It’s like hitting one of my kids. It doesn’t make sense.”

James says he was home when the fight occurred, but got a call from Givens telling him about it at 7 a.m. Monday.

LeBron, it sounds like this dude is one of your kids.  Why is he calling you that early in the morning to talk about what happened at the club?  Did he stay out past his curfew?  It makes sense if dude was talking slick.  He is old enough to be responsible for what he says.

This reminds me of what happened to Erik when he went to the CAL game this weekend. (To make a long story short, this old dude thought that he could check Erik with repercussions.  He was wrong … E almost had to beat an old dude down in front of his father.)  Bottom line, if someone puts his hands on you, or says something slick, then all bets are off.

maybe less time on the sidekick and more time watching where you are going would have prevented you from getting smacked up

Browns coach Eric Mangini said he has spoken with Braylon Edwards about the alleged fight.

I wonder what Coach said….I would have said something like, “Where was that fight during the game, since we lost and you didn’t catch a single pass, even though Anderson threw for 269 yards?”

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that a 28-year-old man accused Edwards of punching him in the face following an argument. The man said Edwards hit him with a closed fist. He said he suffered a black eye and cut and was treated at a hospital.

Why is this part news?  Did he expect to be hit with an open fist in a slapping motion?

he does look pretty satisfied.....

Mangini said he was aware of the incident. He added his players’ personal conduct is important and that he was still gathering information on the incident.

Edwards did not catch a pass in Sunday’s 23-20 overtime loss to Cincinnati. It was the first time in 62 career games Edwards did not have at least one reception.
