NBA – “I took down his teammate, LeBron asked me if I could…
Video When LeBron st:o:mped on Jeff Teague
Unlike Kobe Bryant or Michael Jordan, LeBron James does not have a reputation as a killer and violent trash talker.
However, when he was provoked by his opponents, he knew how to respond with words and with his game.
When we compare him to Michael Jordan, we often hear that LeBron James does not have the killer instinct, does not have a personality that terrorizes his opponents and sometimes even his teammates, and some hold it against him.
It is true that the King does not really have any enemies in the league, since he tries to support all the players who surpass themselves and who want to reach the highest level.
But be careful, we must not believe that the best scorer of all time crushes himself against the others and that he never uses his trash-talking to gain an advantage over his opponents.
We must in particular remember his legendary sentence about Gilbert Arenas, which not only allowed his Cavaliers to win a playoff match, but which also led to the decline of Agent 0.
When LeBron walked on Jeff Teague
And in a recent episode of his podcast, the hilarious Jeff Teague revealed a new anecdote which proves that the King also knows how to be terrifying on the floor.
The former leader of the Hawks was a little too confident during a playoff series against Cleveland, so he had to suffer retaliation from a LeBron against him… He must have regretted his words quite quickly.
We played against the Cavaliers in the playoffs and I destroyed Matthew Dellavedova. I yelled that it was going to be a long night for Cleveland… LeBron replied, “Can you put up more points than me n*gro?!” “.
I said yes, there were lots of rappers in the room, I was all in… I ended up averaging 18 points in the series, LeBron must have been at 38. I didn’t know what to do anymore.
LeBron James is not the type to accept provocation and not respond, proof with this crazy story from Jeff Teague.
The King couldn’t stand being attacked by a teammate, so he took matters into his own hands and made the Hawks’ lives hell for 4 games.
This is the kind of match put out by No. 23 in response to the Atlanta leader.

LeBron James likes provocations because it allows him to surpass himself on the field.
There is no doubt that in hindsight, Jeff Teague would have preferred to keep quiet and leave Matthew Dellavedova alone.
