LeBron James

Diana Taurasi takes funny shot at LeBron during Kobe Bryant memorial

Diana Taurasi brought a bit of levity to the Kobe Bryant memorial in Los Angeles on Monday with a hilarious shot at LeBron James.

Taurasi, who is a 3-time WNBA champion and the league’s all-time scoring leader, was discussing the skill level of Bryant’s daughter Gigi Bryant at a young age, remarking how amazing it was that she had a turnaround fadeaway jumper at the age of 11. Then she zeroed in on LeBron with the funniest line of the day to that point, remarking that he doesn’t even have it now.

Taurasi knew Bryant well, and he was a big fan of hers, even giving her a nickname inspired by his own. Now she even gets to take a friendly shot at LeBron in his own building at Bryant’s memorial service with a very memorable line.

Zion Williamson does not feel LeBron James gets the respect he deserves

Zion Williamson

Zion Williamson has a high opinion of LeBron James.

Williamson spoke about facing LeBron James and the Lakers ahead of Tuesday’s game in Los Angeles. The New Orleans Pelicans rookie spoke highly about LeBron.

“Sometimes I feel he doesn’t get the respect he deserves but it’s not for me to decide,” James said, via Omnisport.

James definitely has his share of haters, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t get the respect he deserves. He has been widely regarded as the best basketball player in the world for most of the past decade. You can poke holes at his resume if you want to and take shots at him here or there, but he has immense respect from most sports fans.

It won’t take long for Zion to be in a similar category either. People already like to bring up one thing regarding the Pelicans rookie.

LeBron James Red Vines

LeBron James scored a season-high 40 points in his Los Angeles Lakers’ 118-109 win over the New Orleans Pelicans at home on Tuesday night, and he treated himself at the end of the game.

TNT showed James snacking on a piece of Red Vines licorice while resting on the bench at the end of the win.

There was a question debated by the TNT studio crew after the game about whether James was eating Red Vines or Twizzlers. Shaq maintained that all licorice is Twizzlers, while others said it was a Red Vine. Based on what the women next to him were having, it was probably a Red Vine.

Also, none of this should surprise you after we learned about James’ junk diet.
