Ken Shamrock is not here for LeBron James talking about things that aren’t in his lane.
Earlier this week, LeBron James says he saw the rash of injuries coming. It was announced Wednesday that Leonard would be sidelined because of a right knee injury, which caused him to miss Game 5 and now Game 6 of the Clippers series against the Utah Jazz.
LeBron published a series of tweets reflecting on the objections he voiced when the league fast-tracked the 2020-21 season to begin just 71 days after the Lakers were crowned champions in October.
He also posted this on Facebook, which prompted a response from former WWE star and MMA legend Ken Shamrock. He basically told him to shut and dribble.
“How about just do your job and let the coaches do there job & the management do there jobs. Stop being political…do your job.”
Not sure how LeBron was being political in his statement, but it seems Shamrock was just waiting to blast the Lakers star about anything just to say that.
Leonard, who has been ruled out for Game 5 of the Clippers’ Western Conference semifinal series with the Utah Jazz on Wednesday, became the eighth All-Star to miss a playoff game this year, which is the most in league history, according to Elias Sports Bureau research.
In response to James’ tweets, NBA spokesman Mike Bass said in a statement: “Injury rates were virtually the same this season as they were during the 2019-20 season while starter-level and All-Star players missed games due to injury at similar rates as the last three seasons. While injuries are an unfortunate reality of our game, we recognize the enormous sacrifices NBA players and teams have made to play through this pandemic.”
