Wizards’ crimes against LeBron James

On Wednesday, LeBron James told reporters that he had big performance plans for the Wizards (via Bullets Forever).

With two days off this weekend and a refreshing visit to the White House on Tuesday, James promises we’ll see a different James against the 17-19 Washington Wizards. “We’ll see Wednesday how I’m coasting,” James said jokingly as he made his way into the Heat locker room on Monday. “You’ll see the numbers I’ll put up on Wednesday. Just watch.”

He put up a respectable 25 points, but the real story of the night was the Wizards’ total dominance over the Heat, particularly in a 43-point first quarter.

“I looked up at the score. I wasn’t paying attention the whole quarter. I was like, ‘Is that right?’ ” said Trevor Booker, postgame. “I really didn’t know. I had no clue we was whipping them like that. I was just playing.”

Yeah, they were whipping them like that. The game had some awesome “so-and-so does such-and-such to LeBron” moments. I think this Nene block was my favorite. (Vines via the awesome @recordsANDradio and @truth_about_it)


Let’s see it again.



Or maybe this Trevor Ariza steal.



How about this Nene dunk on James? Sad LeBron is sad.




We see you, Trevor Ariza.



You too, Garrett Temple.
