Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Dwyane Wade were recently interviewed in their Team USA uniforms. They were loose and in a jokey mood, as the questions before were about Chinese food and kids.
Transcripted with 58 seconds left:
Access Hollywood: What about no Celtics on the team [USA], how is that possible?
Lebron James: Huh?
AH: The Celtics, they won the championship-
LBJ: What about em?
AH: Nobody on the team, Lebron …
Either Dwyane Wade or Carmelo Anthony, off-camera: Three year commitment, it’s a three year commitment.
LBJ: Yeah, yeah, the Celtics was a one year commitment.
LBJ’s deadpan is on point.
Now, it occurs to me that maybe every NBA team campaign is a one year commitment to win, and maybe that’s what Lebron meant, but my initial reaction was to laugh at his comment and delivery.
