LeBron James has a complaint at the Heat

Published Add your comment

LeBron James is actually upset with whats going on in Miami. He's not yearning to be able to shoot more, nor is he annoyed at Dwyane Wade's injury record. Nope he actually has a real complaint....

The reigning champ and MVP wants more minutes. 

Guaranteed it's not likely to see him requesting a trade, but the league's superstar is still kind of ticked off. James isn't one to take nights off or play at a lesser level and that he would prefer that Heat coach Erik Spoelstra give him more rest, James is mildly frustrated about averaging a career-low 36.9 minutes.

“I don’t like playing less,” he said. “I don’t feel like I need to play less, but I can understand that we’ve been playing a lot of basketball, so (Coach Spoelstra) is monitoring that. But don’t ever put it out there that LeBron wants to play less.” 

LeBron simply isn't used to not playing big minutes every night. At Cleveland where he was carrying the Cavs, he was averaging over 40 minutes a game in their quest for a championship. 

That number has reduced while in Florida but it's a simple fact, All athletes love to play their sport.
