Michael Rapaport doesn’t like LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. He’s made that clear throughout the NBA Finals, rooting for a Golden State Warriors sweep and antagonizing Cavs fans online in a bizarrely personal manner. While he’s retweeted haters and generally seems to be enjoying himself, he reached his peak as the Warriors won the NBA title on Monday night.
Rapaport tweeted a profane video in which he’s joined by Rasheed Wallace at some kind of bar for a late-night rant about something LeBron did seven years ago.
Unfortunately filmed in portrait and not landscape mode, Rapaport immediately starts going in on LeBron James.
“Now you take your big three and you shove it right the f–k up your ass,” Rapaport said. “You ruined the NBA, you f—k.”
Wallace joined in to add some swears as well, and the two exchanged high-fives.
Rapaport is clearly referencing James’ decision to go to Miami and play with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. Many have credited that move with ushering in a new era in the NBA, where players move about more freely in pursuit of championships. James himself would dispute that, claiming he has not played on a super team.
Rapaport didn’t ask Wallace if his championship-winning Detroit Pistons team could beat the Warriors because we already know his answer to that question. Still, Sheed looked more than comfortable reveling in LeBron James’ failure on Monday night.
