Barclays Center? LeBron is excited after all


So, it appears LeBron is, after all, excited to be playing at Barclays Center on Wednesday night. While LeBron didn't seem overly enthusiatic about breaking in Brooklyn's new arena on Tuesday morning, he clarified his feelings on Twitter later Tuesday evening.

The Heat practiced at Georgetown University on Tuesday before departing for New York. During the media-availability session, reporters were looking for a really energetic and exciting response from LeBron James about Wednesday's game against the Nets. New arena! Brooklyn isn't New Jersey! Hooray!

Um, no.

James said he was excited about the atmosphere (only after being prodded for an answer) but added " I'm not losing sleep over it. It's not like yesterday."

The Heat visited the White House on Monday.

As for Barclays Center, which isn't as awe-inspiring as the White House but does feature a really cool oculus, James wasn't very impressed in 2010 and he apparently still isn't now. Go fig. His only concern (if you want to call it that) on Tuesday was getting used to the new arena's backdrop behind the stanchions.

"The basket is 10 feet and I know how to put the ball in the rim, so I'll be alright," James said.

Ummmm ok? Maybe you should delete this entire post to save yourself the embarrassment? Probably shouldn't of posted the original since it wasn't news anyway.

You are not very good at this Goodman. If you weren't assigned to the best basketball team in the NBA, your columns wouldn't get many views.

Joe just giving you the little player insight you were begging for, when he didn't post for a while.

Some people are going to bitch, no matter what you do.

'At this point, what does it matter?' - H.C.

Awesome post, Joe! Yeah!!!


Mr. B...BKY - you don't gotta ready this, nobody is forcing you...stop complaining like the lil school girls that you are


Greggembe, at least admit this was ridiculous. And Eddie, I didn't see you yesterday at all. Like I predicted, your wouldn't show. Shocking!

My bad! Meant you wouldn't show.

Greg, true he didn't post for a while, but to make a blunder like that is really bad! I would be mortified!
