Heading into Game 7 of the NBA Finals — one of the biggest game of his life — LeBron James is as cool as the other side of the pillow.
As described by Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon-Journal, James appeared “very loose today, smiling and cracking jokes from the podium” during his Saturday press conference.
One of the jokes he cracked had to do with answering a question about winning the MVP award.
"Last time I answered a question about MVP it didn't go that well for me… I'm not going to do it," said LeBron James with a laugh.

Upon the conclusion of the press conference, James capped it off in epic style.
LeBron walked out of his news conference rocking a cap with an image of Kermit sipping tea…but that's none of my business #NBAFinals

That James is loose right now shouldn’t surprise anyone. He’s competing in his sixth straight NBA Finals and has been bringing the chill all series long until tip-off. The past two games, however, he’s been anything but chill during the action.
Speaking of tip-off, catch James and the Cleveland Cavaliers taking on the Golden State Warriors on ABC this Sunday night starting at 8:00 p.m. ET from Oracle Arena.
