Orlando GM Otis Smith Trashes LeBron James

Orlando Magic general manager Otis Smith was asked for his thoughts about LeBron James’s decision to join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami. Smith minced no words, wondering how the three players would share the basketball and then really opened up on James, questioning his competitive desire to the Associated Press.

“I was surprised that he went” to Miami, Smith said. “I thought he was, I guess, more of a competitor.”

“The great ones do and usually stay in one location,” he added. “This is a new era. It’s a little different than my time.”
