Cleveland Cavaliers News: LeBron James Gets Roasted After NBA Finals
In Cleveland Cavaliers news, LeBron James is being criticized following the 2017 NBA Finals. It is not because the team failed to defend the title they won in 2016. Instead, it is due to the comments he made about a hot topic in the league today, super teams.
A lot of NBA fans are disappointed with the concept of super teams. They believe that it destroys the balance and competitiveness in the NBA. Some even say it is the reason why Cleveland lost to the Golden State Warriors. The Dubs had too much firepower that the Cavaliers failed to match.
However, they may be forgetting that for many, James was a pioneer when it comes to this trend. When he left Cleveland, he built a super team in the Miami Heat which helped him win two NBA titles in four seasons. Following this, he reunited with the Cavaliers to capture one title in the last three years.
In James' time talking to the media after Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals, he said he has not played for a super team. This statement drew flak from NBA fans who immediately expressed their thoughts on social media.
A report by For The Win included a number of these social media reactions. There were those who laughed at James. One said he should be "embarrassed," while others called him out for his remarks.
It is difficult to agree with what James stated during the press conference. In his time in Miami, he teamed up with fellow stars like Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Ray Allen, and Rashard Lewis. During his comeback to Cleveland, the Cavaliers already had Kyrie Irving and traded for Kevin Love. They then built a solid supporting cast that was led by J.R. Smith. This year, they added two veterans (former All-Stars) in Kyle Korver and Deron Williams.
