LeBron James lost his damn mind on Monday night after the Cavaliers lost to the Pelicans, marking their fifth loss in the last seven games. The gajillionaire superstar athlete, who has won three titles and has been to a record six NBA Finals in a row, seemed to be under the impression that the world is out to get him.
“I just hope that we’re not satisfied as an organization,” James told a small group of reporters. “I just hope we’re not satisfied.”
"We're not better than last year," he said, "from a personnel standpoint."
“It’s like when you don’t have bodies. It’s tough,” James said. “The [expletive] grind of the regular season. We’re a top-heavy team. We have a top-heavy team. We top-heavy as [expletive]. It’s me, [Kyrie Irving], [Kevin Love]. It’s top-heavy.”
“I’m not singling out anybody,” James said. “I’m not. Yeah, we won [the championship], but [expletive], you know what, let’s see if we can do something."
"We need a f---ing playmaker. I'm not saying you can just go find one, like you can go outside and see trees. I didn't say that.
Lebron backed off his rant a bit on Tuesday, explaining on Tuesday that we wasn't trying to call out the front office.
Crawford was a standout at Indiana and then Xavier before being drafted 27th overall in the 2010 NBA draft, but his NBA career fizzled out pretty quickly. He played four seasons before ending up in the Chinese Basketball League and then the D-League.
Needless to say, he's not the missing link to the Cavaliers that LeBron was talking about. But what does that really matter? He believes in himself, and he's doing damn well with the Grand Rapids Drive. Plus, alternative fact: he's the piece the Cavaliers need to make it back to another NBA Finals. Period.
