“I went behind my back and just lost it,” James said of his costly turnover with 5.5 seconds remaining against the Spurs. “That’s how the ball rolls sometimes.”
Well atleast the NBA YouTube channel has his back. After LeBron “choked” at the end of the Cavs loss to the Spurs on Wednesday night, the NBA uploaded a video to their YouTube channel called “Best of Phantom: San Antonio Steals a Close One in Cleveland” but then deleted the video which referenced the LeBron turnover and uploaded a new video called “Best of Phantom: The Spurs Take One in Cleveland.”
Hmmmmm….am I reaching here and feeding the conspiracy theorists who say the NBA refuses to post videos of LeBron getting dunked on or embarrassed? Yeah, a little.
Regardless of who is changing titles, removing videos or confiscating footage of LeBron, the Cavs are still winless against the Spurs since 2010 and are sitting at .500 after 10 games so far this season. But James doesn’t sound too worried.
“We’ve got to continue to play, continue to watch film, continue to go over situations, continue to be in situations and you learn from it,” he said. “I think we learned from the game Monday and we came with a defensive mindset that we haven’t had this year against a very, very good team — a great team.”
LeBron finished the game with just 15 points on 6 of 17 shooting. He was 3 of 11 when Kawhi Leonard was guarding him.
