LeBron James went off on the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night, especially in the 4th quarter of the game, lifting the Lakers over the Cavs in his first game in Cleveland in over two years. The King finished the game with a season-high 46 points, including 21 points in the last quarter to outscore the Cavs 21-19.
That was really great from James and after the game, he revealed he was extra motivated to have a very good 4th quarter. At the end of the 3rd, Bron spotted a Cavs front office member celebrating he was missing shots and that was enough for him. He said he knew the person, but his attitude didn't sit well with James and that was very bad for Cleveland.
“I know who he is. He’s part of the front office group,” James said, via Mark Medina of USA Today. “He was really excited about that shot a little bit more extra than I would have liked. But he got to root for his team, obviously. He showcased that. I know I had another quarter. The fourth quarter is my favorite.”
James knew he had to do something great in the 4th to give the Lakers their 13th win of the season while making it clear he's not one to mess with. It looked like that front office member didn't remember who LeBron was and he had to get to work.
“It’s someone I know, for sure,” James said of Monday night's vocal front office member. “I felt like he was just a little too excited about seeing me miss.”
Just when he was being criticized for not showing up in the 4th quarters of games, LeBron makes a statement, showing he's still a bad man and that when you taunt him, he will be ready to fire back. He has had a rocky history with the Cavs and this new incident will be added to the long list of misunderstanding he's had with his first team in the league.
