A excerpt from this article may shed some light on why.

Quote:
Playing with LeBron James isnít always easy. Every season that doesnít end in a championship is considered a failure. James demands excellence from his teammates and can be hard on them if they arenít acting or playing up to his standard. There was a game against the Jazz early in the 2015-16 season when Irving finished with 34 points but zero assists in a Cleveland loss. After the game, James gave Irving a lecture that those numbers were unacceptable:

After the game, James wasn't thinking about the loss or about that last defensive breakdown. He was miffed that Irving scored all those points without registering a single assist.

"He came up to me and was like, 'One, you can never have another game with no assists,' " Irving said, describing James' words. " 'You can damn near have just one, two, three, but you can't have zero.' And I was like, 'All right, cool, it won't happen again.' And it hasn't happened since that game."

Exactly he's a demanding diva.

I mean I get it considering the pressure he deals with on a regular basis but I get why it would be grating on others who don't live up to that.

NBAís Warriors to replace Red Pandaís stolen $25k unicycle


OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Ė The NBAís Golden State Warriors will buy the popular half-time entertainer known as the Red Panda Acrobat a custom-made, $25,000 unicycle to replace the one stolen from San Franciscoís airport.

KTVU-TV reports Friday that the team notified Rong Niuís agent of its plan to replace the 7-foot unicycle the acrobat uses in her routine where she flips bowls from her feet and catches them stacked on her head at halftime shows across the country. Agent Pat Figley says the unicycle will be built in China.

Police released Jan. 24 surveillance photos from San Francisco International Airportís baggage claim area showing a man wheeling away black bags containing the unicycle. Niu has had the unicycle for 30 years.

She is a regular performer for the Warriors and around the NBA, and sheís the one halftime act NBA Twitter loves and gets excited when sheís performing. Sheís also appeared on Americaís Got Talent.

I don't mind if the Lakers strike out on Lebron this summer....whomever is signing Lebron now is getting him for the final years of his career. As we have seen teams don't need Lebron anymore to win a championship.

That was an impressive second half meltdown by the Cavs. Itís really looking like Lebronís remarkable run of straight finalsí appearances is finally going to end unless something really changes soon.

Wouldn't it be wild if the NBA Finals featured two entirely different teams.

Celtics/Thunder perhaps?

But I don't trust Donovan to be smart enough to realize his Big 3 is Westbrook/PG13/Steven Adams.

Melo need not apply.

Unless an injury bug strikes the Warriors I don't see it happening.

Looking back on it, Iím amazed that Lebron didnít make the finals in his last 2 years before The Decision. I canít believe his team lost to a team led by Dwight Howard.

Thibodeau is such a dumb coach, and so are their players, KAT with no touches in OT....culture of losing city and franchise.

Capella would have had a 30/30 game but D'Antoni sat him down early.

You're really missing out. The Celtics scheduled Paul Pierce's jersey retirement for after the game instead of at halftime because they were so confident that the Celtics would win. Meanwhile it's a 30 point Cavs blowout and all the Celtics fans are forced to sit around and watch their team get tortured so they can see the jersey retirement after the game.

Every time the cameras pan to the crowd it's full of stone-faced Celtics fans who are clearly not enjoying themselves.

I saw a couple of pictures on Twitter of him sitting next to Rondo and Doc, all of them looking dejected. And someone else on Twitter when they were talking about the tribute said ďof course itís not a star-studded as Kobeís retirement...Ē

Yep, Paul Pierce was not happy about LBJ and the Cavs ruining his jersey ceremony.
