The Cleveland Cavaliers might be an absolute dumpster fire right now, but don’t tell that to LeBron James. He’s too busy congratulating himself on his next personal achievement.
James and the Cavs will be in San Antonio on Tuesday night for a showdown with the Spurs (another team with its own drama). Cleveland is looking to break out of a slump in which it’s lost seven of 10 games.
It feels like there’s a new report every day chronicling the supposed dysfunction within the Cavs organization. Late Monday night, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported the team had a heated meeting during which Kevin Love was in the crosshairs for bowing out of a game because he was sick.
But LeBron has his mind on other things, as he proved Tuesday morning on social media. He’s just seven points shy of joining the 30,000-point club, which obviously is a pretty impressive club to join. And to commemorate the moment, James congratulated himself with an Instagram post.

Wanna be one of the first to Congratulate you on this accomplishment/achievement tonight that you’ll reach! Only a handful has reach/seen it too and while I know it’s never been a goal of yours from the beginning try(please try) to take a moment for yourself on how you’ve done it! The House you’re about to be apart of has only 6 seats in it(as of now) but 1 more will be added and you should be very proud and honored to be invited inside. There’s so many people to thank who has help this even become possible(so thank them all) and when u finally get your moment(alone) to yourself smile, look up to the higher skies and say THANK YOU! So with that said, Congrats again Young King ??! 1 Love! #striveforgreatness? #thekidfromakron?
“Congrats again Young King.”
Self-absorbed social media posts are nothing new for LeBron. But he’s got more money than all of us combined, he’s one of the two or three best ever at his profession and he’s probably still the favorite to get his team back to the NBA Finals in the Eastern Conference — regardless of whatever they’re going through right now. So smoke ’em if you got ’em, we guess.
But man, he sure isn’t going to lead the league in self-awareness anytime soon.
