LeBron James took a solid 20 minutes in thanking his teammates including the four former New York Knicks who are now NBA Champions.Alright LeBron, we get it.
We understand you love your teammates and your truly just a genuine real dude. And for those who didn’t think so, you’re wrong. The guy really is beloved by the people around him.
Having said that, though, enough already.
LeBron James took a solid 20 minutes in thanking his teammates once the parade ended for the 2016 NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers (video above).
Included in his thankfulness was all four former New York Knicks: J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, Timofey Mozgov, and Channing Frye. Of course he also, yet again, threw dirt in the eye of the Knickerbockers fan by mentioning J.R. was considered a “throw in.”
J.R. or now J.R., this team is LeBron. The guy is that special. He’s so special he can take a guy like J.R. and turn him into an NBA Champion.
This championship was more of a referendum on how great LeBron James is, not how poor Phil Jackson‘s trade with the Cavs was.
