LeBron James paid tribute to Takeoff, the Migos rapper who was killed in a shooting last week, following the Lakers game on Sunday evening.
Many NBA supporters, meanwhile, are certain that the superstar is lying about what he said. During my first season with the Heat in 2010, I was listening to those guys. Back then,
if you asked any of my teammates, they wouldn't have known who the Migos were. "I'm telling you, these people are next," I said.
NBA fans don't seem to believe him, though. "LeBron is one of the biggest liars in American history," one fan wrote.
LeBron James lying about innocuous stuff is the funniest thing to me because there's absolutely no reason for it. He doesn't need to curry favor with people anymore,
he doesn't need to boost his profile. This man tells tall tales for the love of the game, he's like Hulk Hogan," another fan wrote.
LeBron lying about knowing who Migos were before any of his teammates in 2010. He just does this unprovoked," one fan added.
LeBron is arguably the greatest NBA player ever but his basketball abilities pale in comparison to his generational lying," one fan wrote. Regardless, rest in peace to Takeoff.
