A heated segment on Golic and Wingo about LeBron James not giving maximum effort turned into a philosophical debate about programming on modern sports television on Thursday. It began with Stugotz arguing that the Cavs star hadn’t given his all in Cleveland’s losses to Boston.
DO NOT COME @espngolic AND @wingoz WITH YOUR
“LEBRON ISN’T GIVING MAX EFFORT”

Golic: Just because somebody says it doesn’t mean it’s true. All of a sudden we think LeBron doesn’t want to go to the Finals because he’s afraid to lose another Finals. To me that’s a joke. I would disagree with anyone who said that.
Stugotz: Mike it might be a joke to you and it might be a joke to Trey but it’s not a joke to other people.
Wingo: But that doesn’t mean it’s true.
Stugotz: (Wagging his finger at this point). Trey! I’m not saying that it’s true. But the fact that that conversation exists among people who are credible – not me – Stephen A. Smith and others – the fact that that conversation is out there is the reason people who never hold him up…
Wingo: The fact that it’s out there is that people have platforms that they have to fill four hours.
Golic: I would put that more on the people saying that than the actual realistic conversation.
Stephen A. Smith, of course, works for the same network as Wingo and Golic (and Stugotz for that matter), which should make for some awkward chat in the cafeteria should they run into each other.
