During yesterday’s shootaround, LeBron James was asked about his good friend (supposedly one of his only 3 “good friends” in the league) Chris Paul getting his ankles broken by Stephen Curry. Unlike most people, including CP3 himself, James didn’t care to joke about the play that served as a catalyst for a lot of hilarious memes.
“It’s just our league,” he said. “That’s how people view. If you’re good enough, you’re going to get hit with something and if people talk about it, that means you’ve done something. So you have fun with it, people have fun with it and you move on. It won’t be the first time, it won’t be the last time somebody gets hit with a move in our league.
“I’ve been crossed, I’ve been dunked on, and that’s OK,” James said. “But if you add how many times I’ve been dunked on and crossed compared to how many times I’ve crossed and dunked on people, my number outweighs. And I bet it’s the same for Chris Paul, how may times he’s crossed people compared to him being crossed over. So we know the numbers.”
With that said, let’s take a look at a short compilation mix of the King getting dunked on…and yes it includes Jordan Crawford’s dunk on James that was confiscated by Nike.
For those sensitive LeBron fans who didn’t find that video enjoyable, here’s your LeBron dunking on people mix.
