Superstar LeBron James has taken a lot of criticism for the Miami Heat’s collapse in the NBA Finals. Although it could be argued that it was LeBron’s team that fell apart against the San Antonio Spurs, the leader of the squad has taken the blame for failing to pull off the three-peat.
One NFL star has gone out of his way to troll LeBron on Instagram recently using Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan as examples of how to get it done in the Finals. DeSean Jackson of the Washington Redskins, clearly a passionate Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe fan, posted the following picture on Instagram taking a shot at LeBron:
With the Heat losing in convincing fashion to the Spurs and all the speculation surrounding the future of the four-time NBA MVP, the trolling will likely not stop for quite some time. Many believe that LeBron can redeem himself if he elects to opt out of his deal with the Heat and return to the Cleveland Cavaliers as a free agent, but that scenario might be nothing more than a dream for Cavs fans and owner Dan Gilbert.
As LeBron’s future hangs in the balance, the speculation will continue with what might be “The Decision Part II” in the coming weeks.
Los Angeles has also been mentioned as a possible destination for LeBron in free agency, but it seems more likely that he might favor the Clippers rather than the Lakers.
It has been rumored that the Lakers might make a run at LeBron and that could be the main reason for the coaching search taking so long. Even if Mitch Kupchak and company make a pitch to arguably the best player in the league, it’s doubtful he’ll be wearing purple and gold next season.
