There Are Plenty Of People That Can Vouch For LeBron's Claim That You Don't Want To Be Around When He Loses His Patience
For what it's worth, I'm not sure truer words have ever been spoken. Seems like an aggressive reminder to offer, albeit when prompted, seven games into a long-term contract he signed with a young team that was guaranteed to have some growing pains, but it's most certainly not a pre-threat that's to be treated as empty.
Love him or hate him, if there is a player who lays it on extra thick when his patience wears thin then it's 'The King' of both passive aggressiveness and aggressive passiveness. If Kevin Love's career as the Cavaliers' pet scapegoat doesn't serve as evidence of the overbearing byproducts of LeBron's irritability then the fact that he signed off on damn near his entire team being traded at last year's deadline is a pretty undeniable example of what happens when the most insatiable superstar in the sport is underwhelmed by his surroundings. Whether it's on the court (particularly at the defensive end) or off the court (particularly on social media), you absolutely, positively do not want to be around LeBron James when he's cranky.
Hopefully the Lakers start figuring out the tire fire of personalities they intentionally assembled for some godforsaken reason that's fortuitous only to fun-loving fans, because it's a cast of characters that will more than likely undergo a massive overhaul if its lead gets cranky sooner rather than later. You don't want to be around LeBron when his patience runs out, because there's probably about a 50/50 shot of you being run out as a result. There's no shortage of nice things that can be said about LeBron James as a player, but calling him a tolerant leader is not one of them. Credit to him for kinda, sorta admitting as much.
