LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers have once again proved it’s never smart to count them out. With The King grabbing another triple-double, the Cavs cruised to a 9 point win over Los Angeles.
Interestingly enough, however, it’s not what happened after the game that’s earning peoples attention. Rather, it is what happened before.
Hours before tip-off, James visited a children’s hospital, where one enthusiastic young fan made a very specific request for the basketball legend: dunk on Lonzo. With a small laugh, James responded with “I got you,” before saying, “He might not be in my way. Once he sees I’m about to take off, he might move out the way.”
Unfortunately, it appears as if LeBron never did get to grant that child’s Christmas wish this time. But, of course, he’s still got plenty of time to try it again.
Andrew: "Can you dunk on Lonzo for me?"@KingJames: "I got you! He might not be in my way. Once he sees I'm about to take off, he might move out of the way."
