What do you think Miami’s Coach has to say to “King James” before tonight’s game???Eight measly points… in the NBA FINALS??? Bron Bron better come with it tonight cuz the jokes have been brutal since Tuesday night’s game.
Following Miami Heat forward LeBron James’ confounding no-show in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, the question on everyone’s mind on Wednesday was simple: What the heck happened?
“[He] checked out,” Dallas Mavericks guard DeShawn Stevenson said. Later, he referred to James’ detached passivity as “weird.”
At the eye of the storm, James said he’s trying to tune everything out, including the media reaction to the worst game of his playoff career.
“I haven’t read anything that was written,” James said. “I didn’t play well, especially offensively. I know that. I’ve got to do a better job of helping this team win basketball games, especially late, no matter what it is.”
“Eight points is definitely inexcusable for myself,” James said. “I hold myself up to a higher standard. I had to do a better job of putting myself in situations where I can benefit myself and my team, no matter how many minutes I’m out on the floor.
We’ll see which James shows up to Game 5 on Thursday night
Check out cartoonist Kevin Eason’s take on the situation below:
Pure comedy — Lebron was talking hella yang before Game 4 telling teammates they better be exhausted by the end of the game and give their all and ironically enough his all turned out to be 8 points. SMH
