An old clip has surfaced of LeBron after game 6 of the 2016 finals.
The 2016 NBA Finals will forever live in infamy as the year LeBron James was finally able to bring a championship to the city of Cleveland, doing so in dramatic fashion. How can we forget? Down 3-1 in the series against the Golden State Warriors, the Cavs defied all odds and came back and won the championship in one of the most exciting game 7's in recent memory.
Ever since then, LeBron has commented on how that series pretty much cemented his legacy as one of the best players of all time. In the ESPN+ series "More Than An Athlete," James has been talking about his career in the league as well as how he sees himself amongst his peers. In the seventh episode, we got a look at inside the Cavaliers dressing room after game 6, when Steph Curry was ejected for throwing his mouth guard into the stands.
"They fucked up,” James said. "Mentally and physically. I’m telling you, they fucked up."
Considering how the Cavaliers were able to beat the 73-win team in game 7, it's hard to say LeBron is wrong. The Warriors were shaken by the Cavaliers at the end and it definitely showed.
Do you think LeBron had a point?
