LeBron Speaks on Being Happier Now That He’s Playing With Teammates That Work & Play Hard

LeBron with the subtle shade.

I love it, the NBA has been amazing this year. Cleveland.com has the story.

“At the end of the day, I just like being around guys who want to play and work hard,” James told reporters after the game, according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin. “I know I demand a lot of excellence out of my teammates, but I demand out of myself, too. And [when] we [are] on the road, we want to try and play as well as we can, and we want to try to put ourselves in contention to try to compete for another championship, and that’s my mindset.

“I know the guys that’s here, they’re very excited about this opportunity, and it’s my job to keep them excited about being here. They’re joining something that, obviously, the last couple months hasn’t been what we expected, but over the course of the last four years since I came back has been really good basketball. So it’s my job as the leader of this team to make sure that I acclimate the new four guys to be around a culture that’s built on winning and practicing championship habits, so that’s it.”

Basically, LeBron is crying over his teammates that were traded.
