LeBron James complained about his game attire Thursday after a lackluster performance in the Miami Heat’s loss to the San Antonio Spurs.
The Spurs defeated the Heat 111-87 to bag their fifth consecutive win at home. James put up 19 points in the losing effort but shot just 6-for-18.
From sleeved jerseys to his protective face mask, it seems King James couldn’t catch a break Thursday.
After struggling with the face mask he has been wearing during games to protect his broken nose, James removed it during the second quarter. James also noted his dislike of the Heat’s hotly debated sleeved jerseys after the game.
“Not a big fan of them,” James said. “Every time I shoot, it feels like it’s just pulling right up underneath my arm. I already don’t have much room for error on my jump shot anyways, so it’s definitely not a good thing.”
Dwyane Wade, however, had a different take on Thursday’s loss.
“Let’s not make it about the jersey,” Wade said. “We got our butts kicked.”
