LeBron: Moves made in East at deadline all made… because of him

LeBron James of the Lakers said the many moves made by teams in the East were all about him not being there.

Ever confident, LeBron James surveyed what went down at the NBA trade deadline Thursday and came to the conclusion it was all about one thing.

Him, of course.

With Philadelphia continuing to wheel and deal, adding Tobias Harris (and others) after landing Jimmy Butler three months ago, Toronto dealing for center Marc Gasol and Milwaukee trading for Nikola Mirotic, James said it all came down to one thing.

Him, of course.

“Those top teams in the East, yeah, they’re going for it,” James told The Athletic. “Toronto is going for it, Milwaukee’s going for it, Philly. Boston believes they can do it, too. They know they ain’t gotta go through Cleveland anymore.

“Everybody in the East thinks they can get to the Finals because they ain’t gotta go through me.”

James led the Cavaliers to the last four Eastern Conference championships, which came on the heels of him doing the same thing with the Miami Heat the four seasons previous to them.

“(Crap), I was excited seeing all the moves they made in the East today,” James said. “Those matchups in the second round, in the Eastern Conference Finals, that (crap) is gonna be crazy. It’s gonna be fun to watch.”

  1. the king is right, of course

  2. I don’t think LBJ is overly egotistical, and if he is a bit egotistical, it is ok. I don’t mind it from the King. The guy gets so much hate, it’s unbelievable to me. On the other hand, look at the people who hate him. They are clearly envious of his godlike abilities. But if you are successful, happy, and comfortable in your own skin, it is very easy to admire LeBron James.
