LeBron James picks up dirty laundry left on locker room floor by teammates, isn’t happy about it

Monday October 10th, 2016

Let this be a lesson to all you kids with nagging parents: Even LeBron James, a three-time NBA champion and four-time MVP, does the laundry.

Now, that doesn’t mean he’s happy about it.

After the Cavs’ 108–105 preseason win over the Sixers on Saturday night, LeBron’s teammates all left without picking up their laundry. So James, the last remaining player, had to tidy up the locker room.

From the Cleveland Plain-Dealer:

The three-time champion, four-time MVP took not just his own laundry bag to the locker room attendants, but picked up off the floor an additional five or six laundry sacks that were strewn about The Q locker room by teammates who had left.

“Hopefully I only have to say something once,” James said, promising to address the laundry littering with the Cavs. “Can’t leave the locker room like that.”

James sounds a lot like my mother. She “doesn’t want to have to tell me again.”
