After winning the Eastern Conference title and a trip to the 2015 NBA Finals, LeBron James and a few of his teammates hit the hot tub together, to drink some bubbly and sing a few songs including “Flick of Da Wrist” which is the song potential Finals foe James Harden got his “stirring” celebration from.
The group fun was captured by JR Smith and Iman Shumpert on their Instagram pages and was probably the most entertaining LeBron/Team music video since the 2003 Miami Heat Harlem Shake vid.
It’s safe to say if this was the magical hot tub from the movie “Hot Tub Time Machine,” LeBron wouldn’t take his talents back to Miami, Shump and JR Smith wouldn’t try to make sure they stayed a Knick, Perkins wouldn’t use it to go back to OKC before being traded to the Jazz and Kyrie Irving wouldn’t use it to deny his huge Cavs’ contract extension back in July. Even with a banged up Uncle Drew and without Kevin Love, they look like a pretty unstoppable family right now.
They even sound like a supportive family.
LEBRON VS MICHAEL JORDAN
When Kendrick Perkins and JR Smith were asked about the LeBron vs Michael Jordan debate, James’ family had some high praise for him.
“The only thing that he’s missing is a couple more championships and then it’s a wrap.” said Perkins. “Right now we have arguably the best player to ever play the game. I’m just saying man. I’m not taking anything away from Jordan, but all he’s missing is titles. A couple of more titles and that’s it.”
“Just think about it, truthfully, if he wanted to, he could win the MVP every year. Think about that. He averaged 25 [points], 6 [rebounds] and 7 [assists]. That’s absurd, and people are like “he had a down year.” That’s crazy talk. When it’s all said and done, he’ll probably be the best the game has seen.”
JR Smith agreed James deserves to be mentioned with the GOAT.
“That’s one hell of a debate. Honestly, in my opinion, if it’s not Jordan, then it’s him. It used to be no question. It was a landslide. It was Jordan. Now, you have to consider my boy.”
If you were disappointed in the lack of Kevin Love mentions and because he wasn’t in the hot tub with the rest of the guys, then go to the 1:28 point of this hilarious video.
