LeBron James leaving Lakers loss early was a bad look

Just like that, the Los Angeles Lakers are one loss away from heading home from the playoffs and not being able to defend their NBA Finals crown. On Tuesday night, the team suffered a tough loss to the Suns to fall behind 3-2 in the series.

In that loss, LA was down more than 30 points in the fourth quarter. Video surfaced of LeBron leaving the court and heading back to the locker room too. Woof.

There's no excuse for that. Frank Vogel said James went to get treatment ahead of Game 6, but come on, that could have waited until the final whistle. A rough look indeed for James.
