NFL star Maxx Crosby calls out LeBron James to join Miami Heat


LeBron James joining the Miami Heat in 2010 to form a “superteam” was one of the most criticized decisions in recent NBA history.

The pick is drawing attention more than a decade later, when Las Vegas Raiders star defenseman Maxx Crosby recently called out James when discussing his future with the team.

“The guys who inspire me are the Kobe’s and the Jordan’s, the guys who stay in the same place and win in the same place. No offense to LeBron and those guys. I won’t give them any heat, but I took the easy way out,” Crosby told Jim Rome. “That’s not the way I look at it. I feel like if I go through it, experience the ups and downs and the hardships, it will become that much sweeter. I feel like I’ll be a Raider for life.”

James spent four seasons with the Heat alongside Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, where they reached four consecutive NBA Finals and won two championships. It was perhaps the most dominant stretch of his career, as he averaged 26.9 points on 54.3 percent shooting while earning two MVPs.

The Raiders finished second in the disappointing AFC West with an 8-9 record. Crosby had one of his best seasons, finishing fourth in Defensive Player of the Year voting behind Myles Garrett, TJ Watt and Micah Parsons.
