They said u lost a step, wasn't explosive as once was, the best days was in the real view, questioned your drive, your leadership, your commitment, you don't have killer instinct, going back home is the worst mistake in your career, he got the coach fired, players traded, won't work between him and Kyrie, Him and Kev won't work, love your teammates to much, there's no way he can deliver a championship in his hometown, etc etc etc…. But guess what THATS NONE OF MY BUSINESS #StriveForGreatness #ThisOneIsForTheLand #PutSomeRespeckOnMyName Hahahaha!!! Yes sir
Everything he said was real. Rightfully caught up in the true to life mysticism of the Golden State Warriors, no one thought LeBron’s Cavs had a shot at dethroning the champs. But that’s why the games are played.
As soon as the buzzer sounded last night, the air fell out of the balloon for any remaining LeBron haters. There’s not much ammunition anymore, just adoration & respect – which is all he’s ever asked for.
