    As a Lakers fan this team is exciting to watch! Let’s hope Ja is okay though 🙏

    First time I’ve ever seen LeBron play off ball as much as he did. Very impressed how the whole team contributed & let Bron chill for a bit

  3. Sam M says:

    What an awesome road W for the Lakers. It’s so great to see LeBron get to rest a bit and not have to carry a team like every other year.
    Lakers in 6

      @Judah Mourneth thats carrying bro . . . . how can you say a man that is 1st in scoring with 5 rings being carried? It doesn’t makes sense . . . . hahahaha

      Durant got carried by the warriors and that’s fact!!!!!!!!!

    • Plasma From the floss says:

      @Judah Mourneth you could bro basketball is a team sport not 1v5 I could drop 30 every game and be mad cause my team ain’t doing shit

    • Judah Mourneth says:

      @Plasma From the floss and was losing. You can’t carry a team when you’re losing.

    • Plasma From the floss says:

      @Idunu Afolabi bro these kids don’t know ball

    I always grew up being a LeBron hater but over the years I began to appreciate what he brings to the nba and the legue.league.. he’s a true competitor and he has no limitations towards his success.. he’s already won by playing the game of basketball to the highest level and achieved more

  5. Bermuda Bryson says:

    I can’t believe how good Bron playing right now. Running back on defense, smacking people shots off the backboard. Man you different for real.

    • SuperSaiyan SerendipitousSeer says:

      @WeFreestyleForever Exactly. MJ was better than Bron at EVERY age. There’s no conversation. MJ, Kobe, KG, Hakeem, Wilt, Kareem. Some legends defended properly their entire careers.

    • IamGrandMagus says:

      @leonard edwards Lebron wasn’t as good as Jordan from 20-35 either tho to be fair

    • IamGrandMagus says:

      He got clamped

    • WeFreestyleForever says:

      @Jayson Mercado Jordan. He only had Pippen in 91 and 92. A prime Bron got to the finals once with a team of nobody’s. And lost in 2007. Every other time Bron got to the finals and won he had at least 2 other HOFers on his squad.

    • Nightmare says:

      @WeFreestyleForeverWhen Jordan was this age he was shooting like 43% 21 points a game. 1st round exit. Lebron almost 30 off 50%+ shooting better defense and rebounding better stop

  6. ReinVa says:

    The majority of ppl these days just hate on LeBron, but EVERYONE at the end of the day has gotta admit: it is insane how good he still is at 38

    • IamGrandMagus says:

      @3RR0R404 WeAreProgrammed Kobe was different man don’t mention him with Lebron

    • MrGoodFridays says:

      @3RR0R404 WeAreProgrammed yeah was Kobe was great but at 37 he only went off in his final game but not during the whole season; he was nowhere near as athletic as LeBron at the same age but that’s okay, I still love Kobe but Its not hard to admit that Lebron is the better basketball player and we may never see someone be so dominate at the age of 38.

    • Matt Rowland says:

      I’ve never seen him with PG’s he can trust like this. Reaves is a genius player tbh

    • GSL says:

      @leo criss saying he’s on steroids, does that work for u? Look right above ur comment

  7. Mike Uzumaki says:

    AD and LeBron handled the defense as Rui and Reeves handled the offense. What a game by the Lakers

    • Tyrece Huggins says:

      ​@Ray Cuevas Carcusia but yall were just saying the Grizzlies are better without Morant lmao.

    • ImJustThatOG says:

      ​@Ray Cuevas Carcusia nah they were up before that, and doing just fine.

    • Phuck Youtube says:

      @OnlyFatSnapz so he had no blocks? His presence on the court alone draws defense to free up other players. Bron made a couple turnovers but if he was to not play in this series you think Lakers beating grizzlies with a 100% Ja?

    • Hayti Pa Trayi says:

      You get it man. It is just waww! I’m really seeing these boys ( Reaves and Rui playing with this determination.

  8. imjusthere8 says:

    As a lakers fan,
    I just wanted to come here to post my appreciation for Rui and Reaves, those dudes balled out.

  9. G.A.M.A says:

    This is the type of teams Bron been looking for his whole career!!!😂 everyone contributed!!! Love it!!❤🎉

  10. Aditya Bhosale says:

    That behind the back pass from Reaves and 3-point shot by Rui was wild AF ❤️🥵🔥

    • CAM says:

      @Shreyas Srinivasa Yea I saw that too. I kept saying in my mind, PASS LBJ THE ROCK… & then Reaves would do a great play afterwards 🤣

    • IRLANDA BROS. says:

      That was actually unpredictable. I wow’d on that one. I hope they will be consistent.

    • rambo Lowe says:

      ​@Shreyas Srinivasa yea I noticed that too…AR was in his zone…he wasn’t even looking to Bron side of the court fully 😂 lol but hey, let him do his thing…NBA Players are no joke when they get hot like that

    • rambo Lowe says:

      Yes yes it was…that one got me hype lol

    • Shreyas Srinivasa says:

      @Ronald Credo Lebron kept asking for the ball from Reaves throughout the end, but Reaves just wouldn’t pass it lol. Bro has the Kobe in him.
