LeBron James had his game face on during the NBA Playoffs, but he knows what’s real. King James was spotted during the Lakers and Suns opening NBA Playoff game checking on the other team’s star.
The Phoenix Suns were playing their hardest on Sunday against he LA Lakers. Both teams are still striving to keep those early Playoffs hope alive. During the second quarter, Suns star guard Chris Paul hit the court.
Paul was on the paint after a collision with teammate Cam Johnson. It appeared as though Chris Paul damaged his shoulder in the process.
The Lakers went on to lose that game 99-90, but LeBron was more concerned about his friend in that moment.
The arena was hushed as fans watched the scene play out in front of them. Then LeBron James made a point to walk over and check on his close friend Chris. It didn’t matter if he was on the other team, because they’re friends first.
That move from LeBron James is one you don’t normally see during a heated game with such importance. This makes us have to wonder what that report was all about that said LeBron is the “biggest whiner in the NBA.”
Paul was later diagnosed with a shoulder contusion. At least his good pal LeBron James was able to check on him. It’s great to see this kind of sportsmanship at such a high level.
