The Miami Heat tied up the NBA Finals on Sunday night and that’s something that has a lot of people getting back on LeBron James’ side. But after Game 1, it seemed everyone thought they were a comedian with the best LeBron James cramp jokes and there weren’t many fans outside of Miami defending him.
After the Game 2 win that tied the series, LeBron noted that he could care less about the haters who try to bring him down — something that continues a theme we’ve been hearing from him throughout this postseason.
“You have to [push it aside],” James said. “It’s very difficult at times, very challenging, but for me, I’m here and I know who I’m playing for and what I’m playing for and what I stand for, not only as a basketball player but as man and as a role model. I know what I stand for. To be able to put an NBA uniform on every single night with my name on the back, knowing where I come from, it let’s me know that I’ve done something special. I just try to give back to the game as much as I can while I’m here.”
Whether it’s LeBron saying he doesn’t care about his legacy or LeBron saying he doesn’t care about haters, the bottom line is the best basketball player in the world is focused on winning and not much can deter his focus.
