LeBron James may be the most polarizing figure in the NBA. Many people love his high-flying play style, while others hate his whining, complaining and prima donna attitude. There is no questioning that James is the best player in this NBA's generation. However, there are still plenty of reasons not to root for him, and here are five of them.

There was a time that the "no championship" jokes about James were very entertaining. In fact, they were entertaining until he, well, won a championship. Remember "Why does James' cell phone always go on vibrate? It has no rings." There will be no more of that, as James' Heat pursue their third straight title this postseason.

Okay, this is a bit picky. Not many professional athletes are great actors. Ironically, his teammate Ray Allen starred in a movie called "He Got Game." However, James' latest McDonalds commercial is actually laughable.

It's become a common sight, James whining about a call or anything else that could happen during a basketball game. He's the best player in the game; you'd think he doesn't always need the benefit of the doubt on everything during games, but he apparently feels like he does. Eventually, his incessant whining becomes annoying.

Like his teammate Chris Bosh, James has the tendency to embellish plays when he's fouled, and even when he's not. It gets a little old when every time he's breathed on, he falls to the ground as if he's been mauled.

A great compilation of James flopping throughout his entire career. Somehow, it appears he flops more with age.

The moment James became a villain to many people is when he announced he was leaving his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers for the Heat during "The Decision" aired on ESPN. As if Cleveland didn't already have enough sports heartbreak, James needed to make a spectacle of the fact that he was abandoning his hometown. This was really a heartless move.
