After getting smoked by the Celtics, LeBron was a bit feisty with the media during the post game. He pushed back on a few questions to hint he found them tedious. While he wasn’t disrespectful, there was an edge to his responses likely stemming form the shellacking he and the boys took on the parquet floor.
The Cavs cut the ballooning Celtics’ lead to 14 after three quarters, and looked primed to make a run to start the fourth and make a game out of it. Alas, the Celtics spurted out to a 7 – 0 lead and never looked back.
James was asked what happened, and in a brilliant display of equal parts passive aggression and total recall, he recapped the start of the fourth in insane detail.

Crazy, right? Crazy enough to get a round of applause from the media pool because, yeah, it was exactly what happened, right down to the “Euro-step right hand layup time out.”
Really though, you have to feel bad for Bronny Jr., Bryce, and Zhuri. You think you’re ever going to get away with anything when Pops is home photographically remembering every little lie you told him when you’re trying to get one past the old man?
