LeBron James didn’t hide his annoyance for the play-in tournament, which will determine the final two playoff spots in the East and the West.

James called out the NBA for its decision to create the play-in tournament.

“Whoever came up with that shit needs to be fired,” LeBron James said, via Ryan Ward of Lakers Nation.

The play-in tournament will feature teams that ranked between the seventh and 10th place in the standings. At the moment, the Lakers are tied with the Portland Trail Blazers for sixth on the table, at 36-28.
