LeBron ready for revenge on Tolliver for spoof; Tolliver somehow surprised

Tuesday night, the Miami Heat will destroy the Minnesota Timberwolves. At least that’s the expectation.

And LeBron James will get to check off one name on his revenge list — Anthony Tolliver. That’s what he’s saying, Tolliver is surprised by all this.

Here’s the backstory. You probably remember a little something in July where James announced he was taking his talents to South Beach. Well in early August Tolliver did a little video spoof of “The Decision” in announcing he was taking his talents to Minneapolis. It was pretty amusing.

James noticed and was not amused, as he told the Associated Press.

James has taken notice, deadpanning Friday, “We play Minnesota twice.”

Tolliver told Brian Windhorst of ESPN he was surprised by James’ reaction.

“It was just me having fun, making fun of the decision,” Tolliver said after the Wolves practice on Monday. “When I did it, I had no intention to have him react.”

“If he’s seen the video then he would know that it had nothing to do with him personally, it was about the situation,” said Tolliver, who signed a two-year, $4.5 million deal in Minnesota after having a breakout season with the Warriors last year.

James said before he had not seen the video. Tolliver and the Wolves may pay for it anyway, if what the Heat did to the Nets Sunday is any indication (and right now the Wolves are no Nets).

    he is offended even though he has not seen the video?what an ass clown this guy has turned out to be and he wonders why people have turned against him?yea dropping 50 on a hapless team will show what kind of player you are,the kind that can’t win it all on his own. again the only problem I and most fans had was with the way you made yoiur decision. I am not a cavs fan so it did not bother me what team he went to but his whole attitude and the way he went about it was just wrong.it was no struggle and he knew what team he was going to all along. then he and his handlers try and make it like it was the cavs fault they never won?why was it never about the money before he signed with miami?maybe if he had not had a max contract with cleveland they could have added a sidekick superstar for him. they did everything he wanted and it was not enough. enjoy being the bully and the jackass.I would root for the lakers before I would ever root for the heat
