LeBron James' Son Wasn't Impressed with His Game 5 Stats in Conference Finals

"Seven points and five fouls?"

That's how nearly every one of LeBron James' critics reacted to his paltry, foul-plagued performance in Game 5 of the 2014 Eastern Conference Finals—his son included. According to King James himself, LeBron Jr. busted out his best McKayla Maroney impression in response to his dad's bad night.

As if James needed anyone else to dog him for his play. With all the judgment James endures while on the job, you'd think he'd find his home to be a safe haven from the noise.

Not so, apparently. 

The Miami Heat, though, weren't much worse for wear. They almost upended the Indiana Pacers on the road, in spite of James' worst-ever postseason output. More importantly, the Heat had little trouble pushing past the Pacers in Game 6, with James piling up 25 points and six assists in a 117-92 victory to seal their fourth straight trip to the NBA Finals.
