Following the Miami Heat's loss in the NBA finals to the Dallas Mavericks, Heat star Lebron James ripped into critics who were happy to see James fall short of the title.
Referring to the critics, James said ...at the end of the day, all the people that were rooting on me to fail, at the end of the day, they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life that they had before they woke up today.
James continued, They have the same personal problems they had today. I'm going to continue to live the way I want to live and continue to do the things that I want to do with me and my family and be happy with that.
They can get a few days or a few months or whatever the case may be on being happy about not only myself, but the Miami Heat not accomplishing their goal. But they have to get back to the real world at some point.
James has received criticism all season since joining the Heat after last summer's free agent move to the Miami Heat from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
James' move to Miami was infamously announced last summer in an ESPN broadcast dubbed The Decision, where James said that he will take my talents to South Beach.
One of James' critics includes the Cavaliers' owner Dan Gilbert who was elated after the Mavericks won.
In a twitter message, Gilbert took a shot at James after the game saying, Congrats to Mark C.&entire Mavs org. Mavs NEVER stopped & now entire franchise gets rings. Old Lesson for all:There are NO SHORTCUTS. NONE.
Gilbert's message no doubt got its way to James and perhaps contributed to James' frustration during his press conference that led to his statements against his critics.
