After leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to their first NBA title, it seems the team expects LeBron James to do everything – include cleaning up the locker room! After a game, King James couldn’t stand how his squad left their laundry strewn about so he picked up after them.
LeBron, 31, acted less like a 3-time NBA champion and more like an exhausted parent of a toddler after the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-105 preseason win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Oct. 8. While Kyrie Irving, 24, spent his time chatting about the victory with the media, King James was busy cleaning up, according to Cleveland.com.
“Hopefully, I only have to say something once,” LeBron said, as he and Kyrie were the two last Cavs left in the locker room. LeBron had dropped off not just his laundry bag with the attendants, but the dirty clothes of five or six other players. “Can’t leave the locker room like that,” he added.
Thankfully, Kyrie isn’t in trouble with LeBron, as he handed in his dirty clothes right after his media session was over. LeBron is notorious for instilling his teammates with a sense of respect for the locker room workers, so whoever left their dirty clothes on the floor can look forward to a stern lecture from King James.
Cleveland’s favorite son’s isn’t just about keeping the locker room clean. He also makes sure his teammates “man up” when they’re forced to deal with some major problems. Cavs center Tristan Thompson, 25, (who is dating Khloe Kardashian, 32) is reportedly about to become a father. His ex, Jordan Craig, is several months pregnant with a baby boy and LBJ has told TT to do the right thing it it’s Tristan’s son.
LeBron also told Tristan a man he considered to be “like a brother,” to fix whatever drama he has with Khloe and his ex “sooner than later,” a source EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. While LeBron wants Tristan to take care of the baby (if it’s his), he also wants TT to reduce all distractions before the official start of the 2016-17 NBA Season. It seems that be it sweat socks or baby drama, LeBron doesn’t want any “dirty laundry” distracting his squad from going for a second consecutive NBA Championship.
What do you think about LeBron cleaning up after his teammates, HollywoodLifers? Are you surprised that he’s that dedicated to keeping the locker room clean?
