Real Nice Excuse, LeBron

By - Kris Fletcher

LeBron James has 618 career starts in the NBA. That's 618 player introductions he's been a part of. Actually, make that 617.

Last night, LeBron was a no-show when the P.A. announcer was addressing the crowd with the Miami Heat starting five. "I was in the restroom," as he put it, in the post-game press conference.

How convenient.

617 previous introductions, he was right there, front and center. But on this particular evening, he wasn't. Oh yeah, did I mention that the game was IN CLEVELAND? Now that makes it sound even more "convenient" doesn't it?

Cleveland, the team he made a mockery of last year with his little "decision" special, and who's crowd let him have it the first time he returned to their building after he left.

So his second time around, it just so happens he has to take a leak when player introduction time rolls around? Oh I buy that alright.

You need to be reminded LeBron, YOU caused all this. YOU made everyone in Cleveland hate you. It's not like you gave them a choice. After the way you treated them, what are they supposed to do? Give you a standing ovation every time you come back? Yeah, keep waiting for that one. You're public enemy #1 by your own doing. You've got no one to blame but yourself.

I suppose you think duckin' the boos and jeers by standin' in the crapper is an adult way of handlin' all this right? Well, it's not. It's just sad. My 9-year-old wouldn't even go that route. Actually, my 3-year-old probably wouldn't either.

And to top it all off, you let Cleveland WIN THE GAME. The Cavaliers, a team myself and 4 middle-aged strangers could hang with, and probably beat.


In this one game, you summed up why you, and your team have no chance of winning the NBA title this season. You, are no REAL leader. As far as your team goes, well they just aren't good enough. Sorry.

Oh, and just so you know, you're not the next Jordan either.

Hell, you're not even the next Kobe.

Grow up bro.


  1. Man, I tried giving him the benefit of the doubt, but he's looking more and more like a punk everyday. Sucks, because I used to really like him, much like ya boy Favre.

  2. For starters, Favre ain't my boy. Lol But yeah, at this point I think he acts like a child with the whole Cleveland deal. It's ridiculous.

  3. When I heard about this on Sportscenter, I just laughed. He picked a good time to "go to the restroom" alright. Lol
