How Should a Professional Athlete React After a Big Loss? — Sports Survey of the Day
The Miami Heat hadn’t lost in 53 days, but last night in Chicago, their 27-game winning streak came to an end.
The Heat fell to the Bulls, 101-97, ending the second-longest winning streak in American professional sports history. Winning 27 in a row is no easy feat, so you can imagine that after all that time and effort, an athlete would be a little disappointed in a loss.
To some, LeBron James seems like a poor sport after bashing the referees for not calling hard fouls by Chicago, but if it were any other player, would people be as concerned or judgmental? The man is human and has emotions just like the rest of us. LeBron is not the first to blame a loss on the refs, and he certainly won’t be the last.
