Cameras caught LeBron James and Tristan Thompson involved in a heated exchange during the second overtime period in Sunday’s game. The two Cavs players appeared to be very upset with one another, so it became a topic of discussion once the game was over.
“I have to do a better job of not showing up my teammates out on the floor. I had the right intentions in my mind, but I had the wrong intentions come out of my mouth,” James said on Fox Sports Ohio once the game ended. “I take full responsibility for that as the leader of the team. So I got to be a lot better at that and be able to keep that in-house in the locker room and when we’re watching film.”
It began with a nod to the coaches who helped James get where he is today, then unfolded into a speech on the virtues of tough love.
“As a kid, they showed toughness and stayed on me every single day! Never sugar coded nothing, told me to real and lit me up when I wasn’t applying. Reason I’m saying this is I believe this is a major part of the reason why kids don’t succeed as much because the leaders, coaches, etc., won’t get on them because their afraid of losing the kid, or losing the sponsorship that comes with the kids, or have their own agenda on how much they can benefit in the long run from the kid not realizing they’re cheating the s— out of the kid.
“We as kids don’t know. We need to be pushed, kicked, loved, then pushed and kicked again cause that’s what brings and breads the hunger inside of us! Whoever u are out there please stop worrying about u and if u really care for the kid NFL Cheap Jerseys give them the guidance as my Coaches, mentors did Cheap Kids Soccer Jerseys for me!”
