LeBron James couldn’t help but blast a certain group of basketball players via Twitter on Saturday.
The NBA superstar called out basketball players who practice moves that they’re never going to actually use. He even went on to say it annoys him.
“Why do so many ball players work on stuff they are never going to use in the game?? Seriously question. Annoys me a tad,” James said on Twitter.
We wonder who James could be talking about here. It has to be someone specific, right?

NBA fans are convinced LeBron James is talking about Ben Simmons.
Simmons posts plenty of workout videos during the off-season, particularly of him working on his three-point shot. But when the regular season rolls around, Simmons rarely attempts any threes.
Is James talking about Simmons in his latest tweet?
“He must be talking about Ben Simmons jump shot,” one fan said.
“Taking shots at Ben Simmons shooting 3’s,” another fan said.
Take a look at what others are saying about James’ latest tweet.
We should ask Ben Simmons this everytime he posts one of those YMCA shooting videos https://t.co/D1SrIxTG9M

Regardless of who he’s talking about, LeBron James is right.
Too many basketball players train ineffectively these days. They practice moves or shots in the gym that they’ll never actually use in a game. It’s a poor way of training.
Perhaps James’ latest will inspire basketball players to train better. The NBA superstar knows what he’s doing.
