Lebron James "I miss the hell out of my family. My wife, my kids, my mother, and so on, and so on. So, it's a huge challenge."
Ben Maller: “LeBron James loves to play the ‘Victim Card’, and it’s always something for the pouty superstar. Do you feel empathy for LeBron? Because I don’t. He’s got a job, a GREAT job, and he’s good at it. He’s been assigned by his employer to work away from home for a while… He’s cooped up at a luxury resort in Orlando! LeBron is playing the media like a fiddle. He’s going to harvest this particular crop of EXCUSES. Right now he’s planting the seeds that will grow up and become excuses when the Lakers inevitably play like dog crap in the playoffs. When the Lakers stumble, AND THEY WILL – they’re not going to win the championship, he will tug at your heartstrings and say how he’s such a better husband and father than you and he just could not focus on his job because he's homesick. He can also disguise it as a façade that he’s aging before our very eyes.” (Full Audio Above)
Listen to Ben Maller explain why he thinks LeBron James’ recent comments admitting that he’s ‘homesick’ at the NBA’s Bubble in Orlando is just paving the way for LeBron to eventually have a convenient excuse when the Lakers get knocked out of the playoffs early.
Check out the video above as Maller can already see LeBron blaming the Lakers’ lost season on him missing his family.
