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.
