LeBron James told Kyrie Irving ‘we’ll be back’ immediately after losing to the Warriors

New, comments

That’s some great leadership by James.

LeBron James immediately showed leadership while making his way to the locker room after the Cavaliers had just lost to the Warriors in Game 5.

James grabbed Kyrie Irving, gave him a hug, and told him, “We’ll be back.”

The Cavaliers are clearly the second-best team in the NBA at worst. They’ve just run into a Warriors team that is one of the best to ever grace an NBA floor.

James has played in seven consecutive NBA Finals, so while it might seem easy for him to say, that’s a great way to uplift his team in the immediate aftermath.
