This is not going to make haters of LeBron James very happy.
In the latest episode of “The Shop: Uninterrupted,” the Lakers superstar revealed he regularly searches the crowd before games just so he can spot haters who don’t ike him.
“I go out on the floor during warm-ups and I’ll just be looking for a LeBron hater. I just need one of them. I’ll be like, ‘Please, let me find this one LeBron hater. I need it.’ In the crowd, for warm-ups, it’s like 20 minutes before the game starts and I’m just looking like, ‘Oh, I found this motherf–ker. Oh yeah, I’m ready. I’m gonna be ready to go tonight.'”
LeBron is usually pretty good about avoiding confrontations with his critics. Still, there have been a few incidents in the past where he has stood up for himself.
“He’s a hater,” James said about Charles Barkley in in 2017. “What makes what he says credible? Because he’s on TV? I’m not going to let him disrespect my legacy like that. I’m not the one who threw somebody through a window. I never spit on a kid. I never had unpaid debt in Las Vegas. I never said, ‘I’m not a role model.’ I never showed up to All-Star Weekend on Sunday because I was in Vegas all weekend partying. All I’ve done for my entire career is represent the NBA the right way. Fourteen years, never got in trouble. Respected the game. Print that.”
When it comes to his biggest hater, Skip Bayless, he has refused to give him the response he so desperately wants.
LeBron must’ve spotted an extreme hater inside Crypto.com arena on Saturday night, because The King scored a season-high 56 points and the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Golden State Warriors 124-116 to snap a four-game losing streak.
