The Cleveland Cavaliers Coach And GM Have Both Told Lebron To STFU, And We Couldn’t Agree More

I’ve been watching sports for a long time. Maybe about 15 years or so now. And in that time, I have never, EVER, seen an athlete that so frequently teeters between universally beloved, and hated.

Enter Lebron James, who seems hellbent on making 2016 a year in which everyone hates him. James has almost immediately tarnished the good will he built up by returning to Cleveland and dragging their sorry asses to the finals. Between his subtweets that resemble that of a high school chick, his public affection for Dwayne Wade (and every other player not on his OWN team), and all the other geneal whining he has done this year, LBJ is starting to rub people the wrong way. So much so that both the Cavs coach and GM had to tell Lebron to chill the f*ck out.

According to Cleveland.com, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said:

“I just told him we can’t have that, being down like we were and him being the leader,” Lue told cleveland.com. “Just me being a competitor, I didn’t like it. We had a long talk about it. It was good. He understood, he apologized, and he’s been great.”

Similarly, after Lebron’s public comments about playing with his BFFs Wade, Melo, and CP3, the Cavs GM also had to tell Lebron to STFU:

Griffin’s talk with James on Wednesday afternoon was a little more general, but was sparked by James’ comments to The Bleacher Report that he wanted to play with Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Paul on the same team for a “year or two.”

Lue said James apologized to him for his behavior at halftime Saturday night, and Griffin’s discussion with James was positive and productive, with James echoing recent public statements about an upward trend for the Cavs heading into the playoffs.

Lebron, I know you’ve been spoiled rotten since the time you were 10, but believe it or not, LIFE IS NOT PERFECT. So quit b*tching all the time, embrace the fact that you’re one of the richest and most recognizable men in the world, and move forward. 85% of this planet wants to trade lives with you, yet here you are, acting like a hormonal teenager. Get a grip dude. We get that you’re butt hurt that Steph Curry stole your throne over night, but seriously, get a f*cking grip.
