LeBron is Not Happy With Cavs Roster: Says Team ‘Needs a F*cking Playmaker, GET ME MORE HELP’ (Video)
It hasn’t been a good 2017 so far for the Cleveland Cavaliers, as they’ve lost 5 of their last 7 games and they have an upset superstar fuming. For the past few weeks, LeBron James has been foaming at the mouth about the team getting a veteran back-up point guard, and he’s starting to get more vocal about it in the media.
According to the Akron Beacon Journal, LeBron has remained adamant about the team getting him some help. And he doesn’t want to have to keep saying it.
“1. For weeks now, LeBron James’ drumbeat has remained consistent: “Get me more help. We need more playmakers. We need a backup point guard.” He said it privately in the locker room after games and publicly when cameras were rolling. It was the first thing he said after the Cavs traded for Kyle Korver. He said it and said it and said it.
2. Following this loss to the Pelicans, on a night All-Star Anthony Davis sat with a leg injury, James’ message grew louder and more powerful. The Cavs have lost five of seven with him in the lineup for the first time since he returned to Cleveland. Now he’s roaring loud enough for everyone to hear.
3. “We’re not better than last year, from a personnel standpoint … we’re a top-heavy team,” James said, adding a few minutes later, “I just hope that we’re not satisfied as an organization. I just hope we not satisfied. How hard it was to do that s—. I just hope we’re not satisfied.”
4. Satisfied, in this instance, means satisfied breaking the city’s 52-year drought and winning one championship. That’s not enough. James wants more.
5. “I don’t got no time to waste,” he said. “I’ll be 33 in the winter and I ain’t got time to waste. That’s what I’m talking about. … When I feel like physically and mentally, me personally, can’t compete for a championship no more or I feel like I can’t do it, then I won’t have this problem. But until that happens, and it don’t seem like no time soon…” He didn’t finish the sentence. He didn’t have to.”
When asked about the front office, LeBron has this to say:
“I ain’t got no problems with the front office. I told (Griffin) to his face, so it ain’t like I’m telling y’all to put it on record. I see Griff all the time. One thing about me, if I got something to say, I’m going to tell it to your face. We need a f—— playmaker. I’m not saying you can just go find one, like you can go outside and see trees. I didn’t say that.”
