LeBron James implores coaches, mentors to push kids harder

LeBron James is still a relatively young man, just 32 years old, but it’s clear he spends quite a bit of time thinking about parenting these days.

Less than a week after firing back at a flippant LaVar Ball comment about his sons, the Cavaliers star embarked upon a Twitter monologue Sunday night, imploring coaches and mentors to push kids harder to help them succeed.

He expanded on those thoughts in the locker room afterwards, essentially saying the same thing. He said he apologized to Thompson and that they’re “cool” now. Thompson appeared to agree, although he wouldn’t explain what specifically happened.

“We’re family. Little miscommunication in the huddle. Move forward. Move forward. We’re family. Got each other’s back always. Move forward,” Thompson said. “Not going to get into it, just miscommunication, like I said. Move forward. It is what it is. Got the win.”

The frustration stemmed from a play just a bit earlier when Paul George made a bucket to give him 43 points on the game. The Pacers All-Star was dominant in the fourth quarter as he was able to continuously switch the man covering him. On this basket, however, he went uncovered and James was clearly upset with Thompson afterwards.

The frustration boiled over onto the next Cavs possession, even Cheap Jerseys Baseball after Kevin Love Cheap Islanders Jerseys hit a 3-pointer that pretty much sealed the game. With Cleveland struggling lately, emotions are going to be high, but they can at least feel good about coming out of the game with a victory.
