James posted a video of Harrison Barnes, who was traded by the Dallas Mavericks mid-game. The problem was that the Mavs traded Barnes mid-game.The former National Basketball Association champion was still on the bench during their 99-93 win against the Charlotte Hornets when the news flashed on the arena monitors at some point during the 3rd quarter.

Barnes was eventually informed of the news by a teammate on the bench, and you can see he was quite surprised by it.

Wojnarowski added the Kings made the trade with an eye toward keeping Barnes long-term. He's just a generally good dude.

Apparently, LeBron has heard enough about free agency and wants some of the outrage for player movement to be placed on the teams.

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

Barnes was traded while he was in the midst of the Mavericks' game against the Hornets.

James' post was liked by Anthony Davis.

And on Wednesday night, the King made sure to let us know just how ticked off he is with the National Basketball Association trade deadline a day away.

After the game, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle thanked Barnes in front of the team for "being the model professional and a great example". "I am going to miss him an bad lot". "We'll miss him an terrible lot, but I believe he's going to have a great situation where he's going, and we'll just go forward from here". Mark Cuban owes the man an apology.
