The ESPY’s were last night in Los Angeles. Some of the biggest sports stars in the world were there, including Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Russell Westbrook, Aaron Rogers, Michael Phelps, Simone Biles, Dak Prescott, Russell Wilson, P.K. Subban, and of course host Peyton Manning, just to name a few.

You know who wasn’t there? LeBron James. He was in Las Vegas.

What was LeBron James doing in Las Vegas? He was watching Lonzo Ball‘s Lakers take on the Sixers in Summer League action.

Needless to say, with all the speculation about LeBron possibly leaving the Cavaliers next year and joining the Lakers, Twitter freaked the hell out.

See for yourself:

Of course, it is POSSIBLE LeBron wasn’t at the game because he desperately wants to be Lonzo Ball’s sidekick.

Some folks speculated that he might have been there to recruit Lonzo for Nike. After all, King James did make sure to comment on Lonzo’s interesting choice of footwear:

Just. Do. It
