Here are some top NBA Finals Headlines…
LeBron’s Vision Remains Blurry
Lost in the craziness of Game 1 of the NBA Finals was when LeBron James got poked in the eye by Draymond Green.
The contact was completely unintentional, though, and you can watch the play below.
And here’s the aftermath. You can clearly see James’ eye bleeding in the video.
James commented after the game that his vision was “blurry,” and that it got worse as the game went on.
For a guy with blurry vision, he played pretty damn well. It will be interesting to see if his vision is still affected heading into Sunday’s game.
LeBron’s Game 1 Outfit Cost a Fortune
No one ever said it was cheap to be the king, and that’s certainly not the case for LeBron James’ wardrobe.
James went viral when he showed up to Oracle Arena for Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night wearing a suit jacket, shorts and boots. Oh, and we can’t forget about the alligator handbag he was holding, either.
ESPN’s The Undefeated estimates the look cost nearly $47,000, which is more than some of us make in an entire year.
AC/DC was known for sporting this type of look at concerts in the past, but we have to imagine they didn’t spend as much on their outfits as James did.
James Storms Off After Game 1 Presser
The King had had enough during the press conference that followed Game 1 of the NBA Finals, and he wasn’t interested in fielding any more questions from reporters.
So, he just got up and walked out of the room.
It happened after James was asked about JR Smith’s mental error in the final seconds of the fourth quarter. He clearly did not want to throw his teammate under the bus, which sparked a tense exchange between him and ESPN’s Mark Schwarz.
“What do you mean, what’s my version?” James asked.
“Well, did he think that the game was tied, or did he think that you guys had it salted away?” replied Schwarz.
Then, after more back and forth, Schwarz questioned James’ response, by asking, “What do you mean, not sure?”
James then replied by saying, “No, I don’t know his state of mind.”
Schwarz followed that up by asking, “Do you know if he knew the score?”
That’s when LeBron just got up and walked out. On his way, he uttered “Be better tomorrow.”
It’s not like Schwarz was badgering James, he was just looking to get a direct answer. But LeBron does what he wants.
