After the Los Angeles Lakers eliminated the Memphis Grizzlies from the NBA Playoffs, LeBron James tweeted.
In Game 6 of their first-round playoff series on Friday night, the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Memphis Grizzlies by a score of 125-85.
The Grizzlies will return home for the summer after the Lakers’ win, which advances them to the NBA Playoffs’ second round.
LeBron James, a four-time NBA champion, sent out a tweet early on Saturday that has gone viral.
James tweeted: “Unlike you little 🤬 I’m a grown ass man Big shoes to fill 🤬, grown ass pants Prolly hustled with your pops, go ask your parents Its apparent you’re staring at a legend Who, put a few little 🤬 in the they place before Trying to eat without saying they grace before! 🤫👑”
According to mirrir.co.uk the tweet was aimed directly at Dillon Brooks. According to the post:
“In Game Two, Brooks proceeded to call James “old” and tried to get into the legend’s head by taunting him during that particular game.
Brooks: “I don’t care, he’s old. You know what I mean? I was expecting him to do that game four, game five. He wanted to say something when I got my fourth foul, he should’ve been saying that earlier on. I poke bears, I don’t respect no one until they come and give me 40. I pride myself on what I do.”
Brooks was ejected during the following game after hitting James in the groin, and refused to speak to the media afterwards.”
In 31 minutes of play, James finished Game 6 with 22 points, five rebounds, six assists, and one steal.
He ended the series with averages of 22.2 points, 11.2 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 1.0 steals, and 1.3 blocks per game while shooting 48.6% from the field. At 38, he is still one of the top 10 NBA players.
The Sacramento Kings or Golden State Warriors will now square off against the Lakers.
