IF you are a superstar, anything you do is grist for media copy, cannon fodder for public buzz.

Every decision is co-owned by everybody.

Updates on President Benigno Aquino III's presidency

I am sure LeBron James has known about that a long time ago.

James Yap, too, if you wish to come closer to home.

Both superstars in their own right, they’ve been glass house occupants for some time now—prone to egg-pelting, even verbal abuse.

LeBron has chosen Miami for the 2010-2011 NBA season and he got flak for that.

James has chosen to “fight for my family” and he, too, got flak for that.

The blasts aimed at LeBron came from his town mates—but, of course.

If there’s such an act as selfish, if not as deadly, as a scorned woman’s, it is your fans’—if not nonfans’.

Ohioans: They threw everything at LeBron, including—had they had the strength—the giant billboard in Akron City that had his picture in it.

For his belligerence, James absorbed one black eye after another arising from Krismanians’ (Kris Aquino’s fans, who else?) fury, berating the Llamado for “not being man enough to accept the fact that Kris doesn’t love him anymore.”

Reportedly, Kris will shortly divulge her “explosive” reasons why she wants her marriage with James annulled.

Her fans are applauding, but not James.

Sometimes, in a make-believe world, true love is non-existent.

Isn’t James Yap Kris Aquino’s third “love” already, after movie idol Phillip Salvador and retired basketeer Joey Marquez?

They come in threes, they say.

And, yes, if you are a superstar, no decision is minor.

It’s like cheating in golf. It’s never a minor offense. It is an offense, period.

And it calls for a ban of at least five years on the golf premises where the crime was committed—as in the case of Lito Alvarez, the just-appointed Customs commissioner.

Lito, like LeBron and James, isn’t balking, riding the storm of protests over his appointment in fervent hopes he’d survive the biggest challenge of his life.

LeBron, too. He promised himself a first NBA crown as a Heat—the very reason, he said, he left Cleveland, which could not give him one.

James, too. He’d do everything, he said, to save “my family”—Kris and Baby James.

Good luck.
