LeBron James expressed admiration for an imitation of his purported reaction to the James Harden trade on Twitter today.
The arrival of Harden in the Big Apple to play for the Brooklyn Nets has changed the power dynamics of the NBA. A lot of people will now have hedged their bets on the Lakers winning an NBA title with the Nets. It only makes sense given that this year’s Nets will have the 3 greatest iso players in the league today.
Not only is James Harden a 3-time reigning scoring champ, he joins 2 players in great form. Kyrie has been exceptional through the games he’s played this season. With the wide open looks KD and Harden will generate for him, you can fully expect him to be scoring in bunches.
The Lakers will still fancy themselves as favorites, however. They’ve looked like the best defensive team in the league so far. They’re only going to get better on that end in a few months.
LeBron James reacts to video by RDCWorld on his reaction to the James Harden trade
This is the second time in his career that James will take on a trio capable of winning any game all by themselves. The prospect should excite him in real life, but this particular video displays him in shock.
RDCWorld did their best to troll James, but they’ve only ended up humoring the King. LeBron retweeted the genuinely hilarious video on Twitter with the caption: ‘I’m 36, stop throwing the ball” followed by tons of emojis.
IM 36!!!!! IM 36!!!! STOP THROWING THE BALL 😡😡😡🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣💀 https://t.co/KkU32nQVKU

The Lakers will still be fancied by tons of viewers to be the odds-on favorites for this year’s title. They have a better all-round squad and arguably more depth. They have big men who can stifle team’s offenses in the paint. They have all the tools LeBron needs to make another Finals run.
