Whether he’s got an elbow injury or not, Lebron James has got some ‘splaining to do. Like, why was he such a jackass to this ballboy? Why couldn’t he have just handed him his warmups? Was it really necessary to toss the clothes away from the damn kid, instead of just handing them to him?
Look, I’m all for gamesmanship. When Lebron didn’t shake hands with the Orlando Magic after falling to them last postseason, I was fine with it. Give me someone who hates to lose that badly, and I’ll show you a winner.
But gamesmanship shouldn’t extend to the Effing ballboy. C’mon now, Lebron, you’re better than that. I normally even defend you, while everyone and their mother tries to tear you down. But this is too much.
Some people (cough *Cleveland fans* cough) will probably say Lebron didn’t mean to do this. But the kid was RIGHT in front of Lebron’s face holding his hand out to take Lebron’s gear.
