LeBron, who has been criticized several times throughout his career for leaving games early during losses, was immediately crushed by NBA fans.
Here we go again. The Drama King leaves the bench with 5:40 left in this blowout and walks quickly up the tunnel to the locker room. Guess he doesn't want to sit through the rest of this embarrassment like his teammates have to. Guess he doesn't want to be associated w this shame

This man is hands down the worst role model in today’s sports for kids. Flops all over the place, constantly whines about every call that doesn’t go his way and walks out with 6 minutes still to go in the game. The guys a fucking child and anyone who compares him to MJ is a joke. https://t.co/PSepzndCiM

I hope someone asks LeBron in the postgame presser where he was going when he left the bench with over five minutes left in the game…

I know I did NOT just watch LeBron James walk to the locker room with 5 minutes left in the game.

There’s a perfectly good explanation for Lebron going to the back with 6 minutes left. I’m sure of it. pic.twitter.com/yJAXQXordD
