LeBron James screaming “Its our ball” after a wrongly judged officiating call becomes a meme on the internet. The King was mic’d up during the Lakers’ blowout win over the Blazers in game 2 of the first round series.
LeBron James can’t stay out of the spotlight. The superstar had an off-night as he posted a meagre 10 points but made up for it as he gave quality ‘meme material’ for the internet.
The 3-time NBA champion repeatedly kept screaming “Its our ball” after the officials gave the ball to Blazers by mistake. Social media users had a gala time making memes from the moment. LeBron James will look to get back in rhythm during the game 3 as the Lakers will look to take a 2-1 lead.

LeBron James almost stormed onto the court from his seat on the bench as an officiating mistake made him lose his cool. The league’s decision to mic up players have continued to give us gems and a better insight into the personality of the superstars as when they are in the heat of the battle on court.
The Lakers star has been under the pump in the bubble, especially after Lakers losing game 1 in the playoff series vs Blazers. However, he has been very animated on and off the court and is completely locked in to take the Lakers all the way to the NBA title.

LeBron James played about 30 minutes in game 2 as fellow all-star Anthony Davis dominated the game and the Lakers stormed ahead comfortably in the game. The 4-time MVP award winner hasn’t looked like his true self in the bubble and has reportedly failed to adjust to the bubble. The Lakers showed the reason why they won the number one seed in the west in the game 2.
The Blazers look awry after bubble MVP Damian Lillard dislocated his finger in a loose ball collision. But the superstar has proclaimed that he will take the court in the third game as he aims to hunt down the number one seeds in the west.
