Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is one of the all-time greats in the world of professional basketball. James suffered a very nasty injury to his right ankle in the Lakers’ game against the Atlanta Hawks back in March and despite making a return, James simply hasn’t been the same since the injury. Now it seems James decided to fire back at some recent trash talk.
The Lakers haven’t started off the latest season in the best way as they lost to the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday. Then they lost to the Phoenix Suns on Friday night. LeBron James didn’t let that get to him as fans saw glimpses of his old fire during the game.
Suns star Cam Payne had been talking trash throughout the game and it seems LeBron James had enough of that. Due to this, LeBron James decided to take matters into his own hands as he yelled at Cam Payne to “stay humble.”
LeBron James also noted that Cam Payne was not talking like that last year and that the success is starting to inflate his ego. This was still very typical trash-talking in the end.
Ultimately, Cam Payne had the last laugh as his team won. We will have to wait and see if the Los Angeles Lakers will have a better time against the Phoenix Suns during their next game or not. LeBron James would more than love to get some measure of revenge as well.
