Los Angeles Lakers are currently on a roll, having won 12 games in the season so far. LeBron James and Anthony Davis have been leading the charge for the team so far this season. On Thursday, the Lakers defeated Oklahoma City Thunder 112-107. James registered yet another triple trouble and also etched his name in record books against every single team in the league. However, the match will also be memorable for some time with LeBron James having a funny exchange with the referee during the game.
During the course of the game, King James was caught on camera having a funny exchange with referee Marc Davis after he was called for a foul. The video of the incident was captured by a fan sitting courtside.
Speaking to the referee, James said that he knows that the officials can see that he hasn’t been playing defense since the last couple of years, but this is a new year and a new season.
Through the conversation, James was hitting back at critics who were saying that he’s “washed” and that he no longer takes defense seriously by telling the referee about his renewed focus this season. Some critics have even gone as far as to say that now that the Lakers have traded for Anthony Davis, he has a reason to try on defense.
LA Lakers have been an all-round team this year. With the arrival of Davis, the team is getting help on both offense and defense, JaVale McGee and Dwight Howard have been effective as well. Kyle Kuzma, who has been coming from the bench, has also been good but needs to put in more work on the defensive end.
