LeBron James Is a Real Leader

“I live too much in the moment. I can’t worry about what goes on after this series is over with. Win, lose or draw, I live now and worry about the future once it’s upon me.”

“I won’t change my approach,” LeBron James said. “I hold guys accountable. I don’t let things slide. I hold guys accountable and I want guys to be great while they’re out on the floor and do what’s best for the team. If you do that, you put the team before yourself, then I can live with that. So my leadership approach is different from others and I live with it.

“I just want my teammates to be themselves, man. You know, I feel like I need to do more, too. It’s how I am. My teammates are everything. Obviously I wouldn’t be sitting up here with this, the NBA Finals thing behind me, without them. You know, and they’ve been there all year, and I still believe in them. The guys that are struggling, I believe they’re going to have a big game tomorrow. The guys that haven’t been in a rhythm, I feel like tomorrow’s going to be the best rhythm they’ve been in.

“Tomorrow might be the game where I need to be picked up like I was in Game 1 where I caught a cramp. I believe in them, and I ride with them no matter what.”

I’m with you til the end of the line, LeBron.

  • Bullied Home I thought my Broncos won Super Bowl 50 and the NFL season was over. Nope. Watching some amazing Gs wearing the winged-wheel get pushed around by constant clutching, grabbing, cheap-shotting, illegal hitting, and general dirtiness AGAIN was fucked. They always do it to Detroit because we have the most talented skaters and they can’t catch up. [...]
  • Pistons Could Be Up 2-0… So, why aren’t we? Much like our Detroit Red Wings trailing two games, it’s pretty much now or never. And I know exactly how to fix it.

  • Too Many Teams to Follow So, it’s not the Palestine-Israel conflict, but seeing my Tigers on opening day created a log-jam at centerfield with the Pistons on TNT at the same time. (NO, that analogy DOES NOT need to make sense!) For real though, oldschool & I were on another Justin Verlander ride and our poor pushing for the playoffs [...]
  • Curry: Why Did We Let This Happen? Once upon a time, millions of years ago, we were allowed to play defense in the NBA. But sometimes (Drumpf, Bernie…) you become so numb to what’s trending, you think it’s actually normal behavior. Call it mob-mentality, “lemmings,” etc. It’s kind of scary to think for yourself. This is the history of man: the white-man [...]
  • Pistons Answer Biggest Test of Season In Chicago, the Detroit Pistons grinded out a tough victory between two teams fighting for their playoff lives. Maybe it was ugly for an outsider, but this was classic Bulls-Pistons basketball. It stayed within five either way pretty much non-stop. We trailed one after one, and led by one at halftime. It was a pretty [...]

Welcome, Wizards

TheSportingSnarf is a website dedicated to the humorous, nuanced, and enjoyable aspects of the sporting and (to a lesser extent) pop-culture world. We attempt to touch upon (in varying degrees of print/video length) engaging topics which are not discussed nearly enough. We'd love for you to give us your perspective, network, and participate regularly. But if you'd just like to join in on the mob-mentality and get all sanctimonious on a particular sports figure -- head on over to ESPN.com. (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.) Or you can keep it real with us.
