LeBron James is probably the best basketball player of his generation, but that doesn’t mean in any way that he is universally loved amongst his peers and fans. On the contrary, it is the other way, as “The King” is by far the most hated player in the NBA, especially amongst fans. But it seems even players today don’t shy away from coming at LeBron on the court and verbally.
The Lakers-Suns game the other night was a really interesting game with numerous exciting things happening, but most of them were not related to on-court stuff and basketball. While the Suns beat the breaks off the Lakers in the playoffs rematch, Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard got into it at the bench; Rondo got into it with a fan, and LeBron decided to stop playing mid-game.
But one of the most notable moments that got some buzz around the league was a video of LeBron James trash-talking Cameron Payne from the bench, basically telling him to calm down his talk considering he was out of the league not so long ago. Pretty savage stuff.
