    So SAS knew LeBron broke his hand after game 1 and didn’t report on it? The next day, or the day after that? Or the day after that? Or the day after that? Seems to me like SAS doesn’t WANT to give LeBron an excuse even if it’s PLAUSIBLE!!! He talks all this about let us do the reporting and just play ball, well guess what ladies and gentlemen. Who knows if SAS would’ve even reported it after the series was over! THAT is the reason LeBron does what he does, you either let someone else control what’s said about you ( which they can skew the story as much as LeBron can ) or you take it on your own hands. SAS asks where was the cast after game 1, 2, 3? Well I ask SAS where was the report after game 1, 2, 3, 4? Remember guys, he said EVERYONE knew he hurt his hand after game 1.🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️

    LeBron throws a childish temper tantrum and breaks his hand. Displaying incredible leadership skills. The media gave him a pass as usual and blame the series loss on JR Smith. Never again do I want to hear him called a great leader or even a good teammate. This was a selfish act that left his team without any chance to compete. Take the blame off JR Smith and put it on this so called team leader.

    stephen a isn't making sense to me. lebron was mad because of jr smith's blunder which resulted in a broken hand, but i think that instead of it giving the warriors an advantage, lebron knew if he sat out then the cavs would just get even more demolished.

    Why do these bitches keep lying? There was no overturned call in game 1. One official had a charge and the other had a block, they did their due diligence, reviewed the play and got it right which instant replay revealed. Overturned my ass!! They say Kobe had a naive fan base and to that I say bullshit!!!

    Michael Jordan after "The Flu Game" in the 1997 Finals: "If you give up, then [your teammates] give up. So, I didn't want to give up." LeBron James after JRs fuck up: Bitch, moans, and complains. Plays passively in OT. Acts like a fucking child. Slams his hand on a drawing board like a crybaby bitch. Loses faith that he can win so his teammates lose faith as well.

    I'm a big fan of LeBron but Stephen A is right(in this case), if he really did have a broken or even a sprain on his hand, he should have ATLEAST wore a wristband or something like that. But when you do it after four games, or a sweep,it seems fake to anyone with 3 brain cells. I had MJ and Bron at the same level of GOAT, but this changed my mind. #Hisairnessthe🐐

  40. Nvious Xpressions

    Nvious Xpressions10 months ago

    I remember when KD was on the foul line and missed one of em. Draymond got the board and they turned it from 1 to 3 point play.. Bron was over there bitching at the refs.. that's two points they came back to bite that ass. They don't talk about all the other things.. They don't talk about his turnovers, they don't talk about him standing around in disbelief with his arms up while the ball still alive.

    Isn't max wrong when he asserted that the refs have never reviewed a call like that? I've heard multiple sources/journalists/players say that identical reverses have been made about a dozen times in the last couple of years. It was not unprecedented. Max likes to play the "smart guy" because he attended Columbia but getting crucial facts wrong to underpin a key argument is the height of unprofessionalism.

    Im pretty sure the medical staff would not clear him to play with a broken hand and im pretty sure throwing down dunks with a broken hand would be pretty painful.. If it was a legit injury that he was trying to hide, why even put the soft cast on for the post-game interview? It sounds like an excuse to me..

    Cleveland Cavaliers should sue LJ. LJ is a bought commodity. I believe that somewhere in his contract, it says that he cannot do "stupid" things that will injure yourself. Monta Ellis did the same thing in his career when he injured himself riding a moped. Like I said, the Cavaliers should sue LJ.

    They were right when they said that you are a great athlete,a philanthropist,a father & an "ACTOR".."LEdrama" if I may add..coz you've always been a DRAMATIC ACTOR since the Miami days..please stop this nonsense coz people are not stupid,even people from Cleveland won't buy your "LAME EXCUSE" of having a broken hand after being swept..& that's why you have to cover your face specially your eyes with a cap when you announced this because deep inside you knew you were just making everything up right!? would have been more believable if you told the whole nation about it after game 1 ( if for instance that you really broke your hand) and give your heart out by continuing to play until the end of the series with a broken hand despite being swept, then you could have won the sympathy of everybody including the Warriors' fans..but unfortunately you gave up fighting and left every single Cavaliers' fans with a broken heart & a very horrible memory of that series..I guess all in all you made the wrong move or may I say it's too bad you didn't have the right SCRIPT to leave with dignity coz time & time again it's all about yourself.. PATHETIC but that's the're chasing something that will never be yours coz you'll end up with nothing with all your dramas & people are tired of these shit..the term GOAT should only be given to someone who does the job right in the true sense of the WORD..sorry but not SORRY..
