Despite being one of the most scrutinized athletes on the planet…okay, wait, he is the most scrutinized athlete in the world, LeBron James seems to be better than anyone else at taking it all in stride, and he’s proven that once again the past few days as he’s dealt with the wealth of criticism tossed his way after he left the end of Game 1 of the NBA Finals with cramps.
On Saturday, he took things a step further in the team’s press conference leading up to Sunday’s Game 2 when Dwyane Wade asked him a question about if he’ll be ready for practice or not, he followed up with a spectacular imitation of the the most infamous practice rant of all time from one Mr. Allen Iverson.
Yep, once again, James does a good job showing that all of the hate tossed his way really doesn’t bother him, and in the grand scheme of things it really shouldn’t. What happened the other night in Game 1 doesn’t change the fact that James is the best player in the game of basketball right now.
However, all joking aside, they had better have hit the practice floor hard the past few days because the Spurs were still able to walk away with the win despite uncharacteristically turning the ball over more times than one team should have in a Finals game.
