Here’s a fun one: Miami Heat rookie point guard Shabazz Napier has unfollowed LeBron James on Twitter. You might remember, LeBron was a huge fan of Napier, especially after his NCAA Tournament run with UConn, and many believed Pat Riley made the move on draft night to select Napier as a way to appease LeBron.
Well, now that LeBron has left for Cleveland, it appears Napier has no time to be social media pals with the King. When Napier was drafted, he immediately followed LeBron on Twitter and even sent a few tweets at him. But he’s now unfollowed the King and deleted those tweets.
For the record, teammates Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade has said there are no bitter feelings towards LeBron, but you can bet they’ll be extra motivated when the Heat and Cavs face off for the first time next season.
As for Napier. With Mario Chalmers set to return and Norris Cole still on the roster, he’ll be fighting for minutes next season.
