LeBron James Decides To Play Water Bottle Challenge During Cavaliers-Knicks Match; Derrick Rose Would Have Disapproved

The Cleveland Cavaliers destroyed New York Knicks in Madison Square Garden Wednesday night. During the fourth quarter of the game, LeBron James, Kylie Irving and others decided to pass the time in the bench by flipping a water bottle.

In LeBron's attempt, the bottle slid onto the court and that was when he jumped out of his chair and plunged into the court to pick up the bottle. This happened while the game was ongoing.

Fox Sports mentioned that this attitude of LeBron James is a message for Knicks president Phil Jackson, who just shut the idea of apologizing to LeBron for his intriguing "posse" mark. However, James was quick to comment that he just wanted to have some fun.

In a Thursday episode of Undisputed, Shannon Sharpe reacted saying that LeBron was being "blatantly disrespectful" to deliver a message.

"'Bron wanted to give it to Phil Jackson so bad. Because the one thing I know about athletes, when they're upset at something you've said or something you've done to them, and they get a chance to get back at you... not only was LeBron trying to be disrespectful, he was openly and blatantly disrespectful", Sharpe explained.

If Derrick Rose had been there, he would not have let James bully the Knicks according to New York Post. NY Post also mentioned that Rose is known for his explosiveness and as a matter of fact, a park he once played was named "Murder Park".

Rose missed the said match, and in effect, Knicks suffered an askew loss from the Cavs. Derrick Rose was reported to have back soreness and had to check with a doctor to rule out serious injuries.  As a consequence, he had to sit out his first regular-season game.
