LeBron James Needs To Stop Crying to The Refs

Let’s start this piece by being very clear.  LeBron James is incredible.  LeBron James has carried himself the right way since entering the league years ago (save that little “taking my talents to South Beach thing”).  He has won MVP after MVP after MVP after MVP.  He has exceeded the hype, the hardest thing in sports to do, especially when you are the most hyped athlete of all-time.But he isn’t perfect.  None of us are.  And he is doing something completely unnecessary on a game-by-game basis this postseason like never before.  He cries to the referees after almost every play.  He wants a foul on the other team on every play.  He wants specifically the player guarding him to get called for a foul on every play.  He wants every break to go Miami’s way.  The NBA and its refs protect stars enough.  The last thing LeBron needs to do is cry to refs to get more calls.

Stop crying to refs and just play basketball, LeBron.  We enjoy it.
