Watch: Ex-teammates congratulate LeBron James in funny video
Two of LeBron James’ ex-teammates offered congratulations to the former MVP on his career milestone in a funny video shared on Wednesday night.
James surpassed Michael Jordan for fourth place on the all-time scoring list when he scored his 13th point in the Los Angeles Lakers’ loss to the Denver Nuggets. Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson, both of whom teamed with James in the past, clowned around in a video congratulating their buddy. They jokingly called LeBron a ballhog and told him to pass more, among other things.

The three players were teammates on the Cleveland Cavaliers. Frye remains with the Cavs and congratulated James after Cleveland’s loss at Brooklyn. Jefferson is retired but serves as a broadcaster for the Nets, which is why he was in the locker room. And if you think the chemistry between Frye and Jefferson was great, it’s because the two get along well and have broadcasting experience on their joint podcast.
The jokes are especially appreciated because objective observers know those criticisms of James are the complete opposite of the truth.
