Brandon Jennings Takes A Shot at LeBron on Twitter
Brandon Jennings, guard of the Detroit Pistons, was seen taking a shot at LeBron James on Twitter earlier this week stating this:
@JohnnyNBA he run too much when shit gets tough. Never just stuck it out. Like MJ. Magic. Bird. Kobe.
don’t have to @ him. I didn’t say he was bad player. Just said he didn’t stick it out with Cleveland
Brandon Jennings is currently out for the rest of the season with a ruptured achillies and it seems that he has nothing else better to do now than tweet. Even though it may not be the best time for him to criticize anyone, Jennings has the right to speak his mind. And at the end of the day, many people may agree with what he had to say.
LeBron James has always been ridiculed for diminishing in big moments as well as leaving when times got rough. After coming up short multiple times in the playoffs, we thought we would never see LeBron in a Cavaliers jersey again after we watched him remove his jersey following the semifinals loss to the Boston Celtics. During that offseason “The Decision” informed America that #23 was headed to join Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh to win not 1, not 2, not 3…and so on and so on.
The Big 3 went on to go 2-2 in the Finals, losing last years championship match-up to the San Antonio Spurs. During the offseason, LeBron decided to leave Miami and go back to Cleveland. In his return, James joined Kyrie Irving and acquired Kevin Love along with a few other role players to try to get this club back to the Finals.
It appears that there might be a pattern in LeBron’s movements and that Brandon Jennings might have been spot on in his statement. One thing that will set James back in his career is that it looks like he was chasing good teams to win rings instead of sticking it out with one and trying to get through the mud with his struggling teams. However, one thing you can’t take from the 4 -time MVP is that everyplace he went, he was still the focal point and still produced. He took both teams to multiple Finals and won 2 rings with Miami which proves him as a champion.
