1. LeBron James
Career years: 2003-Present
LeBron stans are kind of like Beyoncé stans... Everyone knows that LeBron and Beyoncé are the best at what they do, and because they don't screw up enough to incite controversy, stans have little—if anything—to defend them for. The art of apologist stanning is lost with these folks. Instead, these stans go on the attack, preying on obviously inferior players and entertainers, throwing "shade" from their ivory towers, and gloating on social media with a false sense of superiority. Hey LeBron stans: We get it. Your man is the best. No need to put other players down on Twitter when LeBron is physically doing it on the court.
