LeBron James says his elbow is still not right

Aug 18, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

Thumbnail image for ljames_points.jpgThere are enough conspiracy theories around LeBron’s elbow that I’m convinced it was injured by the man in the grassy knoll.

While LeBron doubters have called it imagined, in a much-overlooked part of the GQ interview James said the elbow still bothered him (the interviews took place in July).

“I go out there and get a hard workout, and I know the elbow is not 100 percent healthy… It feels great, but I’m not going to wait until it hurts to start icing it.”

I’m not on board with the Oliver Stone fans saying it was all a ruse to help facilitate leaving Cleveland for Miami. It looked to me like he was genuinely hurting. That whatever exactly happened it changed parts of his game as he tried to compensate.

But we won’t know for sure until we hear from LeBron’s elbow itself.

    Yeah I had all kinds of things going in my head when I typed the post so apologies for not proof reading!

    His elbow isn’t the only thing with him that isn’t right … punk ass! Start with his head … talk about what isn’t right!!!

    LeBron’s elbow hurt just as much as his mother’s knees. Delonte felt pretty good, though.

    The problem with you calling those who don’t agree with you stupid is, it assumes that you are smart. That’s an assumption I’m definitely not ready to make, considering you are using half information to make your analysis. How do you know what went on behind close doors a5-25 years agoi before the internet was big time and all the information wasn;t readily available. Taking Barkley, Jordan, Magic at their word of what they would have done is like listening to your mother tell you how much of a good girl she was growing up. It’s what she has to say, truth or not. Who goes around saying they would make decisions that everyone is against after-the-fact. The one thing Magic, Jordan, Kobe, Barkley and Wade have in common is their large desire to win. Each tries their own way but that doesn’t make how they go about it better. Jordan got two coaches fired and had a bigtime gambling problem and then he got the best coach ever to guide him. So he is without flaws just like Lebron. Biggest difference is Lebron’s every move can be tracked by the internet now. When Jordan was in his younger days demeaning players he didn’t like, getting coaches fired, we didn’t have the internet to keep track of his and everybody elses moves. So, the stupid one is the one who hates a player he doesn’t know for doing something that’s been being done for as long as deals have been being made. The problem is, they did this shxx too good and those who are only fans of controversy were given a chance to have a field day. In the long-run, it is all you bozos acting like Lebron killed someone that is going to be the reason he makes more and more money. ALL PRESS IS GOOD PRESS!!!! When money is involved.

    And you would be down on your knees doing anything to get him for your team. He still has maturing to do what baller that skips college doesn’t have growing up to do. He is still one of the top 3 in the league and will be that way for some time to come.

    What a jerk. He sounds like a little kid on the playground making excuses before the game even starts! This guy is no MJ or Kobe who both LOVE pressure situations. LeDork is not going to like the sky high expectations he set for himself and his Heat team-mates once the season gets going. I personally don’t think Miami will even make it to the Eastern Conference finals next year.

    Barkley was the man in Phoenix without a doubt-Karl Malone was 40 or something years old-Shaq is the same but was the main man for some championships-Gary Payton was old too..GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE TALKING-@ ADAM

    lots of immature crybabies here.time to face the facts. in Cleveland, your team screwed up. they knew it was likely that lebron would leave, and their gamble blew up in their face. in Miami they took the same gamble, and they won. now Cleveland will keep losing, losing, losing…….and Miami will keep winning, winning, winning. The team now has another great super team besides the Lakers to watch. It will make for great basketball.

    LeBoring James ought to be complaining about his head because his head is what’s not right. Already making excuses for failing next year, setting up the blame it on his elbow when he fails to win a ring. What a sissy! Anyway Kobe Bryant is the greatest player in the NBA and the Repeat World Champion Lakers will Threepeat next June.

    James discouraged other players from coming to Cleveland how can the team win when your star is pulling for another team.
