One of many recreation’s announcers clearly thought it was a message directed for his ex-Cavs teammate … saying James “seemed proper at him.”
Tristan’s response is priceless … giving a sheepish look because the Lakers went on to take the win, 122-114.
Now, LeBron and Thompson have remained tight for years — they performed 4 seasons collectively (profitable a title in 2016) … and have remained shut since LBJ joined the Lakers in 2018.
It has been a tough stretch for Thompson — on Monday, he revealed he fathered a toddler with a Houston lady and publicly apologized to his ex, Khloe Kardashian, and daughter, True, within the announcement.
LeBron’s outburst probably wasn’t a private jab at his buddy … however nonetheless, it could not have felt good.
