Lebron James says he would have quit basketball if he was playing for Northern Iowa

Lebron James and the UNIS loss

Northern Iowa’s double-overtime┬áloss┬áto Texas A&M in the second round of the NCAA Tournament is by far one of the worst last second collapses in March Madness history, and perhaps basketball history in general.

UNI was leading by 12 points with just 44 seconds left in regular play. Rather than using proper ball control to maintain its lead, UNI turned the ball over on careless plays and numerous possessions.

A&M was allowed to force overtime, leading to a win that will surely haunt Iowa’s men’s team for the rest of their lives.

LeBron James says such a horrible loss in horrific fashion would cause him to walk away from basketball for the rest of his life.

Of course, LeBron James isn’t exactly one to shy away from social media controversy. He recently came under fire for unfollowing the Cleveland Cavaliers on Twitter.
