lebron-james-mouth-surgery.jpgJust a few short days after LeBron James' lack of words after a Game 6 loss to the Orlando Magic got him in some hot water, the NBA superstar had a procedure on his very famous mouth.

The Cleveland Cavaliers star underwent successful surgery on Tuesday at Cleveland Clinic to remove a benign growth in his mouth, the team said. Specifically, Dr. Frank Papay performed a five-hour procedure on James' parotid gland, which produces saliva. Surgery for such conditions often takes time because of the numerous nerves and blood vessels in that area of the jaw.
James was had been aware of the medical issue for several months but opted until after his team was bounced from the playoffs to undergo surgery.

I wonder if L. James will leave the office without shaking the doctor's hand after the procedure or if he'll be too upset. LOL LOL LOL

Come on people we are making this a bigger deal than it is. Clearly he was frustrated and disappointed with his team. I would be too if I were doing all the work and then everyone else seems to not care. The sportmanship part I do understand because he is a role model but tell me you or I would not feel like that if this happened on our job!

He is the coach (sorry Mike Brown), mentor, and superstar. For sure I see him leaving the Cavs as soon as he can!
