People Are Going In on LeBron Saying 'At the End of the Day, It's Just Basketball'

"Said while ugly sobbing on the inside."

Published June 7, 2017

Down 0-2 to the Golden State Warriors, the Cleveland Cavaliers are clearly in a must-win situation back home tonight for Game 3 of the NBA Finals. That being said, LeBron James isn't worried.

"It's something I am accustomed to," James said about the Cavs once again being overmatched by the Warriors early in the Finals, as reported by "It's something that I feel like is — that it's OK for me to kind of always go back and know that I can refocus. I can get my guys ready, get myself ready. But you hate to continue to put yourself in these positions. But, at the end of the day, it's still just basketball, man, and that's what gives me [comfort] and I'm more comfortable about it because it's just a game."

Wait...what was that last part again? "It's just basketball"? "It's just a game"?

King James said it, but the internet isn't having it, going in on the three-time NBA champ with zero chill for downplaying the Cavs' current position.
