LeBron James: Locker Room Photos That’s Not Cool Man
The Cleveland Cavaliers NBA team have been forced to reinforce the edict that photography is not permitted in the players’ change rooms following another embarrassing incident involving star forward LeBron James at the weekend.
Directly following the Cavaliers’ 123-108 win over Orlando Magic on Sunday, James was sitting in the locker room, looking at his mobile phone while dressed only in a towel.
Cleveland.com reports that all of a sudden, the towering star looked up having noticed a member of the press snapping photographs of him.
“That’s not cool, man,” James said.
“I don’t miss anything”.
However, the confrontation seems not to have sunk in, with a repeat on Monday after the Cavs’ 106-92 loss to the Miami Heat, when James was again photographed in a state of undress while answering questions in the locker room. On this occasion, staff removed two reporters who were openly taking pictures on their mobile phones.
Aside from being against the rules, still photography in the changerooms is one of the things that infuriates James and his team-mates most, according to the report.
When informed about the removal of two members of the press, all James could do was shake his head in disbelief.
