"I'm out of shape... very out of shape for my expectations." - @KingJames to @KristenLedlow after Opening Night win over the Celtics https://t.co/wKorHrXsZs2017-10-18 03:06:40
Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James scored a game-high 29 points in Tuesday's 102-99 season-opening victory over the Boston Celtics at Quicken Loans Arena, but the three-time NBA champion wasn't all that pleased with his performance.
"I'm out of shape," James, who was slowed by an ankle injury throughout the preseason, told TNT's Kristen Ledlow following the contest. "Very out of shape for my expectations, and rightfully so."
