New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez says fans should get off LeBron James’s back over his failure to lead the Miami Heat to the NBA title.
“Winning a championship is not an easy thing to do regardless of talent,” Rodriguez said. “LeBron is a once in a lifetime player, especially the last year.”
Rodriguez asked for patience in judging James. “We need to remember this kid is 26 years old, and celebrate his talent,” Rodriguez said.
Rodriguez said the Heat not winning should not take anything away from Dallas.
“Let’s not take the Mavericks as an afterthought,” said Rodriguez, who lives in Miami and played in Arlington, a suburb of Dallas. “They did everything they had to do to raise a championship.”
Why A-Rod would want to inject himself into this LeBron James thing is beyond me…
