There was still 10 seconds left on the clock when LeBron James decided to throw a fit and walk off the basketball court with a scowl on his face. The Lakers were down by 11 points in Game 3 when he abandoned his team on the court before the game ended.
Lebron James lost more than just a game in that moment.
“This is not a good look,” ESPN broadcaster Mark Jackson said of James’ walk-off.
Watch the moment he left his team with a sour face on as if he was a kid pouting over having to share his toys. You will even hear one of the game announcers say that the Lakers “need five guys to finish the game”

Even worse, he had no remorse or shame in his behavior, and he made that very clear after the game.
“When you walked off the court with about ten seconds left, was that out of frustration, or did you think the game was over?” one reporter asked the hoop star post-game.
“Both,” the L.A. Laker responded.
Both? I beg to differ… he’s been playing way too long to not know when a game is finished.

As reported by Fox News:
James led his team with 25 points, 10 rebounds, and eight assists, but was “clearly frustrated with a late foul call and the 20 Lakers turnovers that ultimately put the team in a hole early and cost them down the stretch.”
On the other side, Heat star Jimmy Butler finished with 40 points, 11 rebounds, and 13 assists, Fox noted, adding, “Miami needed all 45 minutes of Butler’s play to get the victory as they were without Bam Adebayo and Goran Dragic for the second straight night due to injuries. Butler was 14-for-20 from the field and 12-for-14 at the free-throw line.”
The Heat are still down in the series to the Lakers, two games to one.
James has garnered headlines in recent months as he’s ramped up his left-wing political activism—both on and off the court.
Last month, the superstar sported a political hoodie on the Lakers bus that said, “Change isn’t made from watching on the sidelines.”
This particular politically-charged hoodie is from James’ ‘More Than a Vote Collection’, and it is sold for $55 per sweater on his website. The funds from the sales of his merchandise go towards giving felons voting rights.
The Daily Wire reported in July that James dumped $100,000 into the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition through his “More Than A Vote” organization, which is comprised of black athletes and artists working to combat “systemic, racist voter suppression.”
James, whose net worth is estimated at $450 million, said in July that there is no “movement” for black Americans in the U.S. “When you’re black, it’s not a movement. It’s a lifestyle,” he said, later adding, “I don’t like the word ‘movement’ because, unfortunately, in America and in society, there ain’t been no damn movement for us.”
LeBron seems more like a punk and less like a team player if you ask me. Just like your typical liberal, he loves to play the victim and feel sorry for himself, and wants everyone else to feel sorry for him too. If he does not get what he wants…well then, you can expect a tantrum.
He’s essentially buying votes from felons with the money he is raising, when there is a lot of good he can do in black american communities with that money.
These liberals are so backwards.
