LeBron Might Get Wrist Slapped by Commish for Being a Brat

NBA Commissioner wants to talk to LeBron James about not acting like a grown-up after the Cavs' Game 6 loss to the Magic...


David Stern is not happy with his league's MVP. ESPN is reporting that David Stern wants to have a little chit chat with LeBron James about his refusal to talk to the media following his failure to the defeat the Orlando Magic by himself. Speaking on ESPN Radio's "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" Tuesday, Stern expressed his displeasure with James' actions. When Cowherd asked why the Cavs star had not yet been fined for conduct that had warranted such a penalty for other players in the past, Stern said he was in the process of making a few phone calls to LeBron and did not wish to speak further on the matter. Which is probably for the best since one of his own spokesman said on another radio show Monday that LeBron was not going to catch a fine because they "haven't had any issues with him before at all (read: He's the MVP for crying out loud! The rules don't apply to him. We make examples of lesser mortals!)"
