As you saw in the video above, Mia Khalifa's got some pretty choice words for LeBron James over head coach Tyronn Lue's leave of absence. Question is, is she being harsh or does she just have the balls to say what other people in the industry can't? Everyone in the NBA knows that LeBron James reigns supreme, but should he have the authority to dictate who coaches the Cavaliers? If you're even taking a second to ponder that question, it's a second too many.
Part of being a great player is being coachable. As it turns out, James is hardly that. No disrespect, but as sources point out, it's what separates James from all-stars like Magic Johnson, Bill Russell, Tim Duncan, Michael Jordan and of course, Kobe Bryant. All of these great players are linked to great coaches, but not LeBron.
Again, we're not throwing James under the bus, we're just addressing an obvious pattern. Lue isn't the first coach James has sparred with and we doubt he'll be the last. That said, the likelyhood of Tyronn Lue faking an illness all to cover up his leave of absence seems pretty extreme.
We can't be sure, but given Mia Khalifa's constant trolling of both professional and college athletes, we'd venture to guess she was just trying to push some buttons. We'll let you guys be the judge. What do you think? Is LeBron to blame, or is Mia Khalifa full of it?
