There's a new sheriff in town, and his name is LeBron James. After tonight's win over the Washington Wizards, the Cavaliers superstar once again unleashed some thoughts to the media. LeBron didn't hold back when asked about a new report from Frank Isola of the New York Daily News that stated James is pushing the Cavs to trade Kevin Love for Carmelo Anthony. "I saw it, I heard about it, it's trash. And the guy who wrote about it is trash too," James said.
Heel LeBron is in full effect at the moment. Isola's report came out right around the tipoff of the Cavs and Wizards game on Monday night, but it was soon shot down by sources close to the team, according to ESPN. As for LeBron, he's been very open to the media in recent weeks, speaking up about the Cavs' need to improve the roster and then his public back and forth with Charles Barkley.
So yes, it appears that Heel LeBron James is here to stay. But hey, when you make shots like this, you can do whatever you want.
Isola has yet to respond to James' remarks about his report, but we'll continue to update the story as more details become available.
