James' popularity dropping

By Jason Lloyd Published: September 15, 2010

Almost overnight, LeBron James has become one of America's most-hated athletes.

James ranked sixth on the most-disliked athletes in sports list, according to The Q Scores Company, which conducts popularity polls. The demographics and number of people polled isn't known, but James' popularity dropped a whopping 41 percent from the poll conducted in January.

"LeBron's positive score at that time [January] was the highest we had ever seen it," Henry Schafer, executive vice president of Q Scores, told CNBC.

This time, James was viewed in a positive light by only 14 percent of people polled.

The only athletes disliked more than James, according to the poll, are Michael Vick, Tiger Woods, Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco.
