Now that he’s one step closer to putting his arms around the Larry O’Brien Trophy for the first time, one has to wonder if LeBron James will be able to resist the temptation to take one more shot at his former Cavaliers teammates even as the confetti rains down in the victory celebration on South Beach.
At least, Daniel Gibson wonders. Mary Schmitt Boyer of The Plain Dealer reports that LeBron’s one-time buddy did not take kindly to remarks made by King James at the conclusion of the Eastern Conference finals.
“I wanted to team up with some guys that would never die down in the moment,” James said. “The opportunity presented itself with this great organization and we made it happen.”
Gibson: “Great players shouldn’t have to do that.”
If the city of Cleveland and the Cavs franchise have finally let go of LeBron, shouldn’t he be able to do the same?
