LeBron James is one of the highest paid athletes on the planet, but apparently he’s not being paid enough to play some defense.

During the Monday night game against the Indiana Pacers, Cleveland Cavaliers player Kyrie Irving threw a pass directly to Pacers forward Paul George. (VIDEO: Watch LeBron James Play Some Of The Laziest Defense You’ve Ever Seen As The ‘Greek Freak’ Dunks)

James, who has won multiple MVP awards, had the opportunity to try to stop George from scoring, but instead decided to give absolutely no effort at all. (RELATED: LeBron James Sends Heartwarming Letter To Terminally Ill Teenage Fan)


“And LeBron will just give up and watch PG dunk it,” the television commentator said of the play.

There must be an “I can play defense when I feel like it” clause in James’ contract, because there’s no other possible excuse for that pathetic effort.
