I feel like I am the only one who notices how lethargic, uninterested, and unpassionate he is in general and in big games. Like in the loss to the Pacers, he just seemed to not care at all. On the court and in press conferences. This isn't a one time thing. He's been like that in even bigger games and series.

He’s always had a tendency to quit/not try when he senses a lost game or series in the postseason. But it was painfully obvious in his final series as a Cavalier before bolting to Miami, so maybe it’s a sign...
Really the only time I’ve seen him play his heart out with no chill was in the 2016 Finals.

Thats the sense I get also. He has already mentally moved on. Also, if the team goes out in the first few rounds he can justify leaving.

I suggest you watch the 2007 Eastern Conference Finals.

You know how a boy in high school likes a girl, and works up the nerve to ask her out, and then she shoots him down without blinking an eye... How does he respond? He acts like he doesn't care, to not appear as though it bothers him.

That's kinda what LBJ does...

I noticed it too pre season. I hope its part of the plan to look casual . Without Curry, its their best chance to win again.

And with this lethargy his scores 130 points in 4 games!!

As a big Tim Duncan fan, I have to say that a dispassionate demeanor and calm appearance doesn't mean you don't care or are not "trying".

That's just LeBron's way of letting us know he feels badly about having missed college.

Meanwhile, Lebron continues to beat the crap out of the Pacers.

I guess 40+ points and an almost triple double just highlights how uninterested he is.

Most importantly, big plays on both defense and offense to close a tight game.
