Egomaniac baby LeBron James is having a hard week. On Wednesday, the Chicago Bulls put an end to the Miami Heat’s lengthy streak – one rivaled only by Wilt Chamberlain’s ’71-’72 Lakers. To add insult to injury, James narrowly avoided having the headband snatched directly off his dome by an eager fan. The disappointed king vented his frustrations in a post-game interview, calling the streak “one of the best this league has ever seen.”
In the locker room, the LeBron I remember from the infamous 2010 press conference appeared, saying things like “Let me calculate my thoughts real fast” and “I don’t know if I like that question.”
The most self-righteous answer seemed to be an explanation of why he should be able to foul the sh*t out of people without ever getting fouled himself.
It is getting to me, because every time I try to defend myself, I gotta face the consequences of a flagrant for me or a technical foul or whatever the case may be. It’s tough, it’s very tough. I’m not sitting here crying about anything because I play the game at a high level.
