LeBron James takes lazy defense to new level (video)

LeBron James obviously didn’t want to foul Wesley Johnson on a 3-pointer, so closing out too hard wasn’t the answer. But neither was this.

This was just lazy.

LeBron was close enough and had enough time to at least get a hand up and challenge the shot. Instead, he took a slow step toward Johnson, stared and jogged up court.

Good thing the young Cavaliers have LeBron around to teach them winning habits.
