"The guy who wrote it is trash, too."
LeBron James wasn't lying when he told reporters that he was "done biting his tongue" following his verbal assault on Charles Barkley.
After Cleveland's overtime win over the Washington Wizards last night, LeBron was once again asked about the rumored Kevin Love/Carmelo Anthony trade that was reported on by the New York Daily News' Frank Isola, and he quickly shot down the rumors as well as Isola for being "trash."
“I saw it and heard about it,” James said. “It’s trash. And the guy who wrote it is trash, too.”
Kevin Love and Tyronn Lue also downplayed the rumors after last night's game and insisted that anything being reported is a lie, but when you're superstar player publicly begs the organization for more playmakers these are the types of rumors that are bound to happen.
