Leonard Fournette addresses critics in feisty Instagram post

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the odds and ended up winning the NBA championship on Sunday, prompting the Finals MVP to take to Instagram and troll his haters. This inspired LSU running back Leonard Fournette to do much of the same Tuesday evening as he addressed his critics in a pretty feisty post.

Last year, Leonard Fournette seemed to struggle near the end of the season, which seemed to hurt his chances of winning the Heisman Trophy. However, he knows that he can play much better and should be ready to help LSU get back to the SEC Championship Game for the first time since the 2011 season.

During the 2015 season, Fournette rushed for 1,953 yards and 22 touchdowns while leading the country in yards per game with just over 186. It certainly looks like the Tigers could have a huge year and it is going to be exciting to see what happens.

The Tigers open the 2016 season on Sept. 3 when they play the Wisconsin Badgers at Lambeau Field.
