It might have been all hugs and laughs for LeBron James when he celebrated with a fan —who hit a halfcourt hook shot to win a cash prize — by rolling on the court floor with the guy the other day but, yesterday, the Miami Heat star sounded like he just wants to roll over the NBA schedule makers.
Upset after he found out the Heat will play 2 p.m. on Sunday in Toronto and — with the team's chartered plane lacking satellite TV or Internet — he will miss part of the Super Bowl, James said, "How disgusting is that?" at Wednesday's shoot-around before the Heat played the Nets at the Barclays Center.
The Heat cannot delay their return from Toronto, with a Monday game at American Airlines Arena against the Charlotte Bobcats.
"If the Cowboys were in the Super Bowl, I'd stay there for the game," he added.
It's hard to figure out what's more surprising: LeBron's grumbling or the fact that the Heat's jet doesn't have WiFi.
