Channing Frye Explains Why He Feels Zero Sympathy For LeBron James

“If we’re not making the playoffs I don’t give a s— what happens elsewhere,” Frye said. “How do you think it sits with us? Of course, it sucks. Well, guess what (Los Angeles)? Next time go win some more games. I don’t feel bad for him. I’m not like, ‘Oh, poor Bron. He’s not making the playoffs.’
“I’m the kid that takes his ball home when he loses. That’s what it is. You ask me about anybody else. Phoenix? Bye. Us? Bye. New York? Bye. It’s alright. Bron will be alright. Longer summer. Work on your game.”
At this point in his career, Frye is perhaps more heralded for what he brings to a team’s locker room rather than his ability on the court. However, his words on James’ success in Los Angeles prove just how serious of a competitor Frye still is.
For both the Lakers and the Cavs, this summer will mark an opportunity for reflection and growth.
Hopefully, it results in both teams advancing to the postseason in the 2019-20 season.
