Rob Parker Calls LeBron James a 'Phony' After LeBron Blasts Load Management

LeBron James: “Why wouldn’t I play if I’m healthy? It doesn’t make any sense to me. I don’t know how many games I got left in my career. I don’t know how many kids that may show up to a game that are there to come see me play."


Chris Broussard: “I love it!”
Rob Parker: “LeBron is such a straight up PHONY. Remember when he took off all those games a couple years ago??” (Full Video at Bottom of Page)

Listen to Rob Parker blast Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James after the MVP candidate seemed befuddled when asked what he thought about the NBA’s new ‘Load Management’ craze.

LeBron, coming off a season in which a groin injury limited him to a career-low 55 games, told reporters that it doesn’t make any sense for a player to rest and sit out games if they’re perfectly healthy, and mentioned how he doesn’t want to let down the children who came to the game just to see him play.

Rob called LeBron a ‘phony’ for the comments, alluding to the multiple times in LeBron’s career where he took mysterious exoduses in the middle of the season with obscure injuries.

LeBron’s infamous two-week hiatus in the 2014-2015 season, his first season back in Cleveland, was well documented after he literally disappeared from late December to the middle of January with no official injury provided.

Check out the video above as Parker says it’s funny how LeBron confidently bashed Load Management, while he’s only played a full schedule just once in his career.
