Over the summer, Timberwolves forward Anthony Tolliver made a hilarious video spoofing LeBron’s “The Decision” show (must-see if you haven’t). In the video, Tolliver mocks LeBron and announces his own decision to sign with Minnesota as a free agent. Nobody gave a crap about Tolliver’s decision to take his services to the T’Wolves, but everyone cared about LeBron’s decision, yet Tolliver’s video got over a quarter million hits on YouTube.
LeBron’s Heat plays Tolliver’s Timberwolves on Tuesday, so some Minnesota reporters asked James whether he had seen Tolliver’s spoof. According to the Star Tribune, James turned icy and said: “I didn’t see it, but I heard about it. We play Minnesota twice.”
If this were college football, I’d fully expect the Heat to run up the score and try and earn some style points. Heck, if LeBron was as serious about keeping his “mental notes” on people knocking him this summer as he says he was, the Heat will keep their starters in until the final buzzer.
Miami was already an entertaining team, and now I want to watch to see how badly LeBron will make Tolliver pay for the show. Are you really surprised that LeBron can’t just let it go?
