Here are some examples of people sadly afflicted with illeism:
"I wanted to do what was best, you know, for LeBron James, and what LeBron James was gonna do to make him happy." - - LeBron James
"Without the fans, Floyd Mayweather wouldn't be where he's at today." - Floyd Mayweather
"You won't have Nixon to kick around anymore, because, gentlemen, this is my last press conference." - Nixon
|Nixon could just as easily have said,|
"You won't have #12 to
kick around anymore"
"Elmo loves you!" -
"Making a decision prematurely to pull out of this project wouldn't hurt Barneys or Shawn Carter but all the people that stand a chance at higher education." - Shawn Carter
Shawn Carter gets special recognition, because he is perhaps better known as Jay-Z, so for Jay-Z to speak of himself in the third person as Shawn Carter is, maybe speaking in the 4th person. Or sixth.
Mark Clark can't decide.
