LeBron James is at it again, spewing a profanity laced tirade in regards to why he is still playing in the NBA and playing as many minutes as he is. Without being humble whatsoever, James said the following about his minutes in game:
“That bothers me; when I’m not able to be on the floor,” he said on the March 4 episode of his show, The Shop. “I never know if it was that game or that city that a kid was coming to that was coming to see me, and I’m not playing in that game. … My coaches been trying to get me to sit down for a long time because they be wanting me to take off games, and I’m just like, ‘I don’t wanna do it.’
I love competing; I love winning, I love just playing the game,” James said. “I know at some point I ain’t going to be able to play it no more – at that level. So, s***. I’m trying to squeeze as much juice out of this motherf****** orange as I can while I can. Why not? And I’m still good. If I was out there on some bulls***, like nasty-looking Bron, I’d be out. I’d been quit. But I’m still nice as f*** out there.”
“Every season is like a movie, and I’m living in it,” LeBron, who starred in Space Jam 2 last summer, said. “I’m the star in the movie. It feels dope as s***. I feel like Batman, Black Panther, all of them.”
While the Lakers have had quite the disappointing season this year, the Lakers would be foolish to trade James. If they do in fact decide to trade LeBron, the Lakers are going to see themselves having a losing record for several more seasons, and will likely be much worse than this season. While the Lakers and James’ relationship is tenuous at best, the chances of them trading him is very unlikely.
