Audio After The Jump
Lebron James is not having a good series so far in the NBA Finals. His team is down 3 games to 2 in the best of 7 series with the Dallas Mavericks. To make matters worse, he's had to deal with crazy rumors that his girlfriend and mother of his two kids, Savannah Brinson slept with fellow NBA star Rashard Lewis recently causing his bad play on the court.
The rumor mill begin to spit out so many wild stories, Lewis finally decided to call Houston radio station 97.9 The Box to flatly deny the allegations that were started initially by Box personality. Nnete.
"I can most definitely tell you that those rumors are 100% false. They're not true. I don't know how it came up." Lewis said. "I think if anything they need to let the man play. He's trying to win a championship and the media putting all this negative stuff out about him aint gonna do anything. but mess with his head."
Lebron had a triple double in last night's losing effort for the Heat, but again he did not carry the team on his back down the stretch. Some would argue that he shouldn't have to carry a team that already features talents like Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade.
Fair or not though, it's Lebron who will take the brunt of the criticism if his team loses.
Do you think the pressure is getting to Lebron?
