After winning Game 7 and taking home the championship title to Cleveland, LeBron James issued a spot on statement to those who doubted him during the 2016 NBA Finals series. He even managed to troll his haters and the Golden State Warriors with the outfit he wore while celebrating with the rest of the Cavaliers.
As the Cavs were going up against the Warriors in the series, a lot of sports analysts, journalists, and fans started to pour down on James and of course, compare him to Stephen Curry. Many of them said that James, who is currently 31 years old, is an old man in the NBA who can no longer perform the way he did when he was younger.
They also noted that his glory days are now behind him and he wouldn't possible be able to keep up with Curry and the other young bucks of the Warriors.
But it seems James used these criticisms and the statements of doubters to prove them wrong. As clearly seen during the last games of the series, James played like a man possessed with only one thing on his mind: to break the Cleveland curse and bring home the trophy.
And, as if winning the title wasn't clear enough, James wrote a lengthy post on his Instagram account to address his critics.
"They said u lost a step, wasn't explosive as once was, the best days was in the real view, questioned your drive, your leadership, your commitment, you don't have killer instinct, going back home is the worst mistake in your career, he got the coach fired, players traded, won't work between him and Kyrie, him and Kev won't work, love your teammates too much, there's no way he can deliver a championship in his hometown, etc. etc. etc....But guess what THAT'S NONE OF MY BUSINESS," he posted.
Aside from his post, he also sent a message using his outfit on Monday after getting back from the team's celebrations in Las Vegas. As James was stepping out of the plane, he was wearing an "Ultimate Warrior" shirt and a cap with an image of Kermit the Frog sipping tea. The design of the cap, of course, refers to the popular meme commonly used to sarcastically express disbelief. It is usually captioned with "But that's none of my business."
