Does LeBron have too many ad deals?

Thelebrons So it appears that LeBron James will be helping Microsoft sell Windows Vista, the new operating system which the software behemoth will unleash on a weary world next week. James, of course, whose management company announced he had signed an unspecified promo deal with Microsoft in December, already has heavy endorsement deals from Nike (The LeBrons at left) and Sprite. Before I privately contemplate what a pain in the ass it is to install a new OS, can we all just take a moment to say, ”Overexposure”? Good. I’ll also share this comment from one person at AOL's NBA Fanhouse site, “No one, including LeBron, will ever be as cool as John Hodgman!” Hear, hear.
