LeBron James: 'I would quit basketball' if I was on Northern Iowa

Texas A&M's furious comeback at the end of regulation against Northern Iowa is still making ripples across the basketball world. After all, storming back from 12 points down in less than a minute in regulation is the largest deficit overcome to win in college basketball history. 

For Texas A&M fans it was pure elation. For Northern Iowa it was a heartbreak of the worst kind. LeBron James showed very little sympathy for the Panthers when asked about the comeback, telling ESPN's Dave McMenamin he would "quit basketball" if he played for Northern Iowa.

James has already ruffled feathers with his social media behavior recently, but this is a below-the-belt shot at a team that is already hurting after the crushing defeat.

Of course, there is also the other side of the coin with Texas A&M's continued elation.

And if you've been living under a rock, here is the full comeback at the end of regulation in what ended up being a 92-88 double overtime win.
