LeBron James has been quite testy over the last week or so, and it’s hard to say if the pressure is getting to him or if he’s tired of playing in Cleveland.
James recently unfollowed the Cavs on Twitter and Instagram, then was tight-lipped when asked about it by the media. He then followed them once again, but also said he’d be interested in playing alongside Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade in hopes of winning another championship ring before he retires.
LeBron has downplayed all the negativity, and there are rumors circulating that this is all part of his preparation for the playoffs.
But was the temper tantrum he showcased in Thursday night’s game part of that preparation, too?
The Nets drilled a long-range jumper at one point during their 104-95 win, and James was not happy with his teammates for the poor defense they played. So the clearly-frustrated James had an outburst on the court afterward.
