Chris Paul Sends Bold Message To LeBron James After Latest Lakers Trade Rumors
Chris Paul heard all the trade rumors about LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers and has something to say about those who criticize the king of basketball. His reaction is priceless. The Lakers have enough strength to win games, but they struggle a lot this season. LeBron has great performance and his game is impeccable. However, his frustration grows every day.
This doesn’t change the fact that NBA fans praise him for his next personal record. LeBron will soon pass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the all-time scoring list. Paul is impressed! I mean, you don’t get to accomplish this every day.
“It’s crazy,” Paul said. “There’s been a lot of basketball played. Since we was in eighth grade, Nationals, and all that. You dream and hope to want to do this. I remember us being on vacation with Melo [Carmelo Anthony] and D-Wade [Dwyane Wade], we sort of talked about this years ago, and for him to finally be here just shows the longevity, the commitment to every day, to being prepared, being ready. It’s going to be dope.
“I was hoping we weren’t gonna have a game on the day he broke the record so I could try to be there, but the dates don’t align right now. But yeah, it’s going to be dope. He’s going to shatter that record. Kind of like Steph [Stephen Curry] doing the three-point thing, he’s going to shatter it.”
