It was supposed to be the perfect plan. Back in June, the Miami Heat drafted point guard Shabazz Napier out of UConn, one of the favorite collegiate players of LeBron James. That move was supposed to help bring the King back to Miami, however that did not occur as he chose to head back to the Cleveland Cavaliers instead.
Just a few days later, news –if you can call it that– broke that Napier had unfollowed James on twitter. Of course, everyone chalked it up to bitterness, but now Napier is explaining himself. And his explanation is, well, it’s interesting to say the least.
As a matter of fact, Napier is stating that he did not unfollow LeBron because he’s not even on his twitter, nor does he even know how to use it.
“The whole thing about that is I don’t know how to work Twitter yet and I’m not on my Twitter, so I don’t know where that came from,” Napier said following the Heat’s 85-83 loss to the Washington Wizards at Las Vegas Summer League.
“I don’t pay attention to it,” Napier said. “It gets brought to me by family members, but I don’t pay any attention to it. I just think it’s how it is. Media wants something to bite on.”
Well, that settles that then. Or it could just be an easy squash attempt.
