During a recent interview with Bleacher Report radio on Sirius XM, LeBron James, who is shockingly good in the upcoming film Trainwreck, talked about the film, the upcoming season and the past NBA Finals which is supposedly “replaying in his head” and giving him “nightmares.”
“I just don’t feel like you ever move on from losing in the Finals,” James said, “because you feel like you’re right there and feel like you have the opportunity to do something special. … I can never get away from losing in the Finals.”
“I guess there’s nightmares now about situations throughout the games that’s always replaying in my head,” James said. “It’s definitely difficult, you know I’m getting better every day, but you know it takes quite a while for me to get out of the funk.”
Considering he’s won 2 NBA championships, lost in the finals 4 times already and will probably be back to the Finals a few more times in his career, you would think he wouldn’t have such a hard time moving on from this one. Well, a more motivated James just means more nightmares for opponents next season.
