Two years ago, after putting up 39 points, 16 boards and 11 assists in a Game 2 win against the Warriors, at Oracle, in the NBA Finals, LeBron was asked, “How does it feel to be a pussy ass bitch?” by a disrespectful fan as he was walking towards the locker room. A shocked LeBron stopped to see who said it as a member of the Warriors’ security yelled, “Watch your mouth lady!”
A year later, the Champion Warriors got some payback by destroying the Cavs in Game 2 of the 2016 NBA Finals by 33 points. Nothing too exciting happened to one-man show LeBron (19/8/9) on his way to the locker room but @SupremeDreams_1 did a pretty good re enactment of how James probably acted when he got into the locker room.
As you know, the Cavs responded and pulled off the most impressive Finals comeback in NBA history. Then the Warriors reloaded by turning Harrison Barnes, who missed 27 of his last 32 shots in the Finals, into Top 3 player in the league Kevin Durant.
As expected, the Warriors and Cavs are back in the Finals again, and just like last year, the Warriors whooped the Cavs (132-113) in Game 2 despite a great performance from LeBron (29/14/11). And just like his walk to the locker room after Game 2 in 2015, he crossed paths with some angry individuals.
“It was close, too close,” said JR Smith to USA TODAY Sports about the fan fight. “Yeah, I pushed (LeBron). I wanted to be sure he was out of there. He is the prize jewel right there. It doesn’t matter if I get hurt. It matters if he gets hurt.
“I wouldn’t so much say it was scary,” Smith added. “I remember basketball games in the projects when I was growing up you see that kind of thing. But you don’t really want it happening here.”
If that wasn’t strange enough, for an unnamed reason, LeBron decided not to go to the podium to answer questions about the game. As evident by this interaction with a reporter in the locker room, LeBron wasn’t in the mood for any more stupidity.
Reporter: Do you feel it’s the case where you have to defend home court at this point?
LeBron: Well, are you a smart guy?
Reporter: I think so.
LeBron: You think so, right? So if we don’t defend home court then what happens?
Reporter: Well, yeah that’s what I’m saying.
LeBron: No, I’m asking you.
Reporter: Well, then you guys will get swept.
LeBron: Well that answers your question.
