LeBron James unloads on hypocrisy of National Basketball Association trades via Instagram

Lakers’ best hope to acquire Anthony Davis is for Pelicans to cut albatross loose now

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James made it clear in an Instagram post he wasn't a fan of how everything went down. Barnes has had a down shooting year overall, but he's actually having a career year from three when you factor in percentage and volume - 39 percent on over six 3-pointers a game.

Cameras caught Barnes, 26, sitting on the bench in the fourth quarter Wednesday, and his surprised reaction was widely shared on social media.

James said he wasn't "knocking" the Mavs for doing "what you feel [is] best", but he wanted to make a point that if teams can take that approach with players, then the reverse ought to be acceptable, as well. The two-time NBA All-Star (2010 & 2013) also won Most Improved Player Award honors in 2003-04 after raising his scoring average by almost 12 points per game.

His caption read, "So let me guess this is cool cause they had to do what was best for the franchise right???"

Part of the reason for James' frustration could be the backlash against Davis, after he requested a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans.

"I'm ok with both honestly, truly am", James wrote in the post.

Dallas Mavericks forward Harrison Barnes was traded in the middle of the Mavericks' Wednesday night win over the Charlotte Hornets.

"I got word of it during the game". "I'm going to miss him an very bad lot".

"Everyone is aware that there was a trade, or is a trade in the works, involving Harrison", Carlisle said. I figured it's about time for Harrison to step in for me now. "He's been a great influence on the team and the community. I know that firsthand". "We'll miss him an bad lot, but I believe he's going to have a great situation where he's going, and we'll just go forward from here".
