LeBron Publicly Apologizes For On-Court Argument with Tristan Thompson


In last night’s Cavs-Pacers double-overtime thriller, things got understandably heated in a game with big playoff implications. The most heated spectacle of the night wasn’t a moment between the opposing teams, but instead, LeBron and teammate Tristan Thompson.

Footage shows the two Cavs in a vehement argument near the end of the game. After the game, LeBron made a public apology to his teammate.

Brian Windhorst of ESPN reported James spoke with Fox Sports Ohio after the game about the matter. “I have to do a better job of not showing up my teammates out on the floor,” James said.

He added, “I take full responsibility for that as the leader of the team. So I got to be a lot better at that and be able to keep that in-house in the locker room and when we’re watching film.”

It appeared James was maddened by Paul George at one point scoring 16 straight Pacer points, and as Windhorst put it, “defensive coverages” on the All Star.

Cleveland still came away with the victory despite whatever defensive lapses LeBron was upset over.

Somewhere Mario Chalmers is wondering where his apologizes were for all of his and James’ on-court arguments in Miami.
