LeBron: Warriors 'look more hungry' than the Cavaliers
The Cavaliers lost to the Warriors in last season's NBA Finals, but LeBron James evidently feels like his teammates have forgotten what that felt like.
Speaking to reporters following his team's second consecutive loss on Tuesday, James questioned his team's motivation, while stating that Golden State looks hungrier to win another championship than Cleveland does to win its first.
"We haven't done anything," an exasperated James said after the Cavs lost their second straight game, 104-99, to the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday. "We didn't win anything. We lost. We lost in the Finals. So that's enough motivation for myself. I think we need to understand that. Like, we lost in the Finals. We didn't win. And the team that beat us looks more hungry than we are. So it shouldn't be that way."
"We're too relaxed and too nice," James said. "We're just too nice."
