LeBron Needs to Get Over Himself

LeBron would like to know what exactly has to happen for someone to get a flagrant foul against him.

In a press conference after game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, LeBron said of flagrant fouls I know what it is when it happens to someone else, but I don't know when it involves me. I have no idea what a common foul and flagrant foul is." The interview was a reaction to LeBron being elbowed in the back of the head in the first half of Tuesday's game. He was also wrapped up around the shoulders on a fast break in the second half. Both calls were common fouls.

LeBron, get over yourself. He scored 24 points in 28 minutes. He is the best player in the NBA. Get over yourself.

If you want people to acknowledge how great of a player you are, how tough you are, how talented you are, stop complaining. You want to go Zero-Dark-Thirty-23 and act like the baddest man on the planet, that's great, but don't come back and talk about how you don't get the calls you want. Whether Lebron likes it or not, he is LeBron. He is going to get fouled and get fouled hard because that is the only way people know how to stop him. At some point, if he really wants to be the greatest, he has to just rise above all this petty complaining about/to officials and just say "okay, I'm still going to beat you."
