The Los Angeles Lakers had an early playoff exit just months after winning an NBA title. A first-round matchup against the Phoenix Suns was too much to overcome, especially after a tough injury to Anthony Davis loomed large for the Lakers. James recently made an appearance on Road Trippin, and was asked about his former teammates, specifically Kyrie Irving.

James’ answer might shock some people.

Wow. James says that Davis is more gifted than Irving, and that is a bold statement. On the other hand, he elaborated his answer a bit, but still.
