Judging by the catastrophic ratings, no one is really watching the NBA Finals.
However, those who are watching got to see Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James throw a hissy fit on Monday night after his team suffered a humiliating loss.
The Lakers lost 115-103 to the Miami Heat.
But with 10 seconds left on the clock, James abandoned his team and walked off the court because he was “frustrated.”
“They actually had to bring five players back on to the floor for a final play, as the Heat took a shot clock violation with just 0.7 seconds left,” Yahoo Sports reported. “James, though, was already gone.”
James explained the reasoning for his early exit to reporters after the game.
In other words, James had a wambulance to catch and he wasn’t going to let anyone get in the way of him catching it.
James has spent a lot of time lately attacking President Donald Trump and using his platform to the Black Lives Matter movement.
In August, James wore an altered MAGA hat while speaking with reporters in front of the camera.
Instead of “Make America Great Again,” the “Great Again” text was crossed out and the hat stated: “Make America Arrest the cops who killed Breonna Taylor.”
James also appeared to wear the hat before the game, as well.
James also addressed Taylor and his hat while speaking with reporters:
“It’s just something that we continue to put our foot on the gas, continue to pressure,” James said.
“The situation that’s going on in Louisville, Kentucky, an innocent woman being killed, by the name of Breonna Taylor, a woman who had a bright future, and her life was taken away from her. There have been no arrests. There’s been no justice — not only for her but for her family. We want to continue to shed light on that situation. It’s just unjust,” he added.
Taylor was shot and killed by Louisville Police in her apartment during a flawed forced-entry raid in the early morning hours of March 13.
CBS News reports:
Taylor lost her life when officers barged into her apartment late at the night of March 13 with a “no-knock” narcotics search warrant. They didn’t find any drugs. One officer was shot by Taylor’s boyfriend, who says he thought the officers were home invaders.
He was charged at first but the charges were eventually dropped. Only one of the three officers involved in Taylor’s death has been fired, and none have been charged.
Taylor’s family sued the officers in May, accusing them of wrongful death, excessive force, and gross negligence.
In June, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer signed “Breonna’s Law,” which bans the use of no-knock search warrants and requires officers to wear body cameras when executing search warrants.
