A group of Cleveland Cavaliers superstars took the stage for the annual MTV Video Movie Awards Sunday night, but a new clip from their performance didn’t sit well with many viewers.
In a video posted on the official LeBron James YouTube channel, the Cavaliers are seen performing at the VMA broadcast, with James saying that his fellow superstars, Kevin Durant, Kevin Love and Chris Paul, should be celebrating for “getting to play at the biggest awards show of all time.”
“Let’s celebrate this year’s MTV Video Video Music Award, which is just the start of what is going to be a massive year for us,” James said in the clip.
“This year’s winners will be right up there with the best of the best, and we’ll be there for them when they win.”
The VMA awards are one of the biggest events in the music industry, and the award winners will likely be the most recognizable names in the industry.
LeBron James is currently on a roll, having won four consecutive MVP awards, and will be honored at the awards show on Feb. 12.
He has the best overall rating among all players in the league at 26.1, while he is second in the MVP voting behind only Kevin Durant at 25.3.
James also won the MVP in 2014 and 2016, but his 2016 performance at the Oscars may have been the highlight of his career.
In his first appearance on stage at the VMAs, James took the microphone, held up a red envelope and took a selfie with the trophy.
He finished the performance with the signature pose, but it was unclear if he did it in front of the trophy or at the microphone.
The clip has since been taken down from YouTube.
The video also contains a number of other embarrassing moments that will likely make many fans feel uncomfortable.
The Cavs are seen celebrating a missed shot on the way to a win over the San Antonio Spurs, when James turns his head toward the camera to see what he missed and makes a face that seems to suggest he wants to see the shot again.
The next day, the Cavs play the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals.
It’s not clear if the video is intended to make fans uncomfortable or if it is a shot at James.
The Cavaliers are also seen performing on stage on Sunday at the Super Bowl halftime show, which had a similar video from the 2013 VMAs.
