Heat F LeBron James raps Eminem before Game 7 vs. Celtics

By Ben Golliver | Blogger


MIAMI -- NBA MVP LeBron James got into the mood for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics by rapping along to Eminem's 2000 hit "The Way I Am" in the Miami Heat's locker room.

If you're into the psychoanalysis thing, the verse in question happens to have a decidedly anti-media vibe. James has received criticism during the series for his lackluster play in the fourth quarter of a Game 5 loss but then stormed back to put together a 45-point performance in a Game 6 win at TD Garden to avoid elimination. Following Game 6, James promised that he "[wouldn't] regret" his Game 7 performance "win, lose or draw."

Here are the lyrics that James was rapping.

"Sometimes I just feel like my father, I hate to be bothered
With all of this nonsense it's constant
And, "Oh, it's his lyrical content -
- the song 'Guilty Conscience' has gotten such rotten responses"
And all of this controversy circles me
And it seems like the media immediately
Points a finger at me (finger at me)...
So I point one back at 'em, but not the index or pinkie
Or the ring or the thumb, it's the one you put up
When you don't give a [expletive], when you won't just put up
With the [expletive] they pull, 'cause they full of [expletive] too
When a dude's gettin bullied and shoots up his school
And they blame it on Marilyn..."
