The Cavs ran the Celtics out of their own gym for the third time in the Eastern Conference Finals to clinch the series and advance to face the Warriors in one of the most highly anticipated NBA Finals in history.
After the game, the Cavs gathered as a team to take questions. Naturally LeBron was asked about comparisons to Michael Jordan, having passed him in Game 5 for first place on the all-time NBA playoff scoring list.
After heaping praise on Jordan, LeBron attempted to claim that, unlike MJ, he wasn’t going bald. Tristan Thompson, seated immediately behind James, reacted to the comments with a priceless expression indicative that he couldn’t believe what lies were being spewed by The King. Everyone knows Bron.
“I didn’t go bald like Mike, but I’m gettin’ there.”
Teammates never let you slide on your BS, even if you’re LeBron James. It’s all fun and games when you’re headed to the Finals again.
Watch Thompson hilariously check LeBron.
LeBron: “I didn’t go bald like Mike, but I’m gettin’ there.”
