LeBron James is one of the best athletes in recent years, he has won several NBA championships, however, this has not kept him away from criticism, although he is a winner, his actions are always in the eye of the hurricane.
With time, like all people, he has matured, he no longer wants to be the main figure of the team, maybe he never wanted to be, he just wanted to play basketball for pleasure. His last-second winning shots will be remembered for a long time today he doesn’t do it so much, but it’s something that doesn’t keep him awake at night.
In a clip from the most recent episode of HBO’s The Shop: Uninterrupted, James was asked if he thinks about missing a game-winning shot before he takes it or the failure that comes along with it.
“No. Maybe when I was younger,” James said. “Because I cared about what everybody else thought. I don’t give a f— now.”
James brushed aside criticism when he went to the Miami Heat
One of the toughest moments of LeBron’s career was when he left Cleveland to join the Miami Heat alongside Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
But not only for leaving the Cavaliers people went after him, he was also harshly questioned because in important games he left the decision of the big plays to Wade. But this didn’t bother James, he knew how to put a good face on the accusations.
“It probably changed, to me, about 25 [years old]” he said. “I went to Miami that first year and everything was about, like, still what everybody else thought and then I literally just, like … ‘I don’t give a f— what nobody thinks. I’m him. ‘”
