LeBron James’ 51-point wasn’t enough for the Cavs to pull off a massive upset in Game 1 at Oracle. Despite the overtime loss, a clearly upset LeBron faced the media following the game. The presser abruptly ended when James took exception to ESPN’s Mark Schwarz repeatedly asking him about J.R. Smith’s insta-memed brain freeze that cost Cleveland a chance to steal the game in regulation.
As he walked out, James appeared to tell the gathered press, “Be better tomorrow.” Some say the questions needed to be asked, others think the badgering was a bad look for Schwarz. Either way, LeBron was pissed and not in the mood.
