Once again, LeBron James did a little bit of everything for the Cavaliers last night. He scored 40 points, grabbed 12 rebounds, and dished out eight assists to help Cleveland take a 2-1 lead over the Warriors in the 2015 NBA Finals. And after the game, he managed to do even more by agreeing to sit down with his former Heat teammate Dwyane Wade for an interview.
The entire interview is entertaining and worth a watch. It's not the typical post-game athlete interview, thanks to the interaction that takes place between LeBron and D-Wade. But the most interesting part comes at about the 5:30 mark of the clip above when LeBron admits that he was upset about finishing in third behind Steph Curry and James Harden for this year's NBA MVP award.
"I can't say that I wasn't upset finishing third because I know what I bring to the table," LeBron said. "I know how much I work on my craft. So I can't say I was happy about finishing third."
LeBron did emphasize that finishing third in the MVP voting is not giving him any extra motivation in the Finals. But it's still fun to hear him talk about it and admit that it bothered him.
Check out the entire interview in the clip above.
