Stephen A. Smith has been all over the ESPN airwaves today to insinuate that there is something traumatic going on in LeBron James's personal life that caused his historically terrible and passive Game 4, in which James went 3-for-11 and attempted only 1 shot in the 4th quarter. To paraphrase Stephen A.
"IT WOULD BE IRRESPONSIBLE AND THE LIKE FOR ME TO REPEAT SOME OF THE INNUENDOS AND HAPPENSTANCE THAT I HAVE HEARD AS IT PERTAINS TO LEBRON JAMES AND HIS PERSONAL LIFE BUT INDEED I HAVE HEARD RUMORS AND ALLEGEDLIES INVOLVING HIS PERSONAL LIFE AND WHAT HAVE YOU THAT UNQUESTIONABLY AND WITHOUT QUESTION WOULD IMPACT IS ABILITY TO PLAY THE GAME OF PROFESSIONAL BASKETBALL ON THE BASKETBALL COURT."
Last year, LeBron dropped a similar stink bomb in Game 5 against the Celtics and was slammed, so to speak, by the media. The explanation that emerged for that terrible performance was that - let's just be frank about it - his teammate Delonte West was sleeping with his mom. If accurate, can you really blame LeBron?
