Expanding Lebron James Vocabulary (a short list of other words Lebron James does not know the meaning of)
"That’s crazy, because I had no idea what the word ‘contraction’ meant before I saw it on the Internet,"
Those are the words of Lebron James, who showed a complete lack of sense, not to mention respect for his NBA peers, who happen to be locked in a fairly public (not everything concerning the NBA is about you Lebron) and ugly battle with the owners over the next collective bargaining agreement. And while union president Derek Fisher may say publicly Lebron's stance has not hurt their cause, he certainly couldn't be happy with the most public and talked about NBA player making comments that go along with what the owners want. Despite his designation as the "chosen one," Lebron has shown that he is not all-knowing in his NBA career, so we decided to give him a little vocabulary lesson to better help him on his way.

Lebron James’ performance in the NBA playoffs has left him without a championship.

Clarity-the quality or state of being clear.
