LeBron says week after finals loss was worst he ever had

A Miami Heat team in it’s first season together went all the way to the NBA finals before losing to a Dallas Mavericks team that found it’s stride after years together. That chemistry was part of the difference in that series.

Watching the Heat lose was something fans everywhere and Kevin Love savored.

You should know LeBron James says that loss stung. Badly.

He spoke with Hoopshype and said this about the week after the NBA finals.

LJ: It was the worst week I ever had. I hate losing.

What did you do?

LJ: I did nothing. Nothing at all.

LeBron did say that he thought the Heat making it to the finals in their first year together made it a successful season. He said that living in Miami was an adjustment because he’d never lived outside Ohio before. And he gave props to Clevelanders when asked what comes to his mind about that city.

Passionate. Passionate fans who love their sports. Love the Indians, love the Browns, love the Cavaliers… And I have a lot of respect for them.

Okay commenters, have at him.

    “LeBron did say that he thought the Heat making it to the finals in their first year together made it a successful season.”

    Definitely something a loser would say.

    So, just a few months after he predicted 8 or more championships, just making it to the Finals was enough to make it a successful season? Way to try and temper the expectations you yourself set, LeBron.

    Cleveland fans deserved to be bitter last season, and they got to see him fail on the biggest stage. Now it’s time to let this go.

    LBJ did nothing for a week after he lost to the Mavs. Hmmmm, and I wonder what Kobe did after LA lost to them? I’m thinking “nothing” is NOT the answer.
