LeBron James ignores ball boy, somehow this tells us about him as a person?


In the second quarter, LeBron James was re-entering the game against the Bulls Sunday, just like he always does. The camera closely follows his every move, just like it always does. He took off his sweats and threw them to the floor, just like every other NBA player.

And here’s your headline on Sports By Brooks:

No One Is Too Small For LeBron James To Belittle

Followed by the video of the ball boy being right there to collect LeBron’s sweats, and LeBron not taking the time or interest to hand everything to him.

No way the Knicks are going to pursue him after that display.

It all goes to show LeBron’s a prima donna, with an ego the size of New York (too big for Cleveland) and he doesn’t care about anybody but himself, right?

Wrong. That is a desperate stretch.

What LeBron did is pretty much what every NBA player does. They throw off their sweats and the ball boy runs and gets them — at the bench, at the scorer’s table, in the locker room, basically everywhere. Watch a few NBA games and you’ll see this is the norm.

Does that mean LeBron couldn’t have handed the ball boy the clothes? No, I guess he could have. But to try to infer some larger personality trait out of accepted and widespread NBA behavior is a fool’s errand.

I bet LeBron doesn’t always use his car’s turn indicator before making a right, too. What a b%*$#%.

Welcome to America, Fenerbahce Ulker.

The Turkish powerhouse was in America playing some exhibition games this preseason, and they got a first-hand reminder that Kevin Durant is back. KD had 13 points in the Thunder’s easy 111-81 win.

Not to be outdone, Russell Westbrook got in on the act.

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
