LeBron James might be eating a lot of crow after an old video clip of him surfaced.
In a video tweeted by @itsjwills, the Los Angeles Lakers star was discussing Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo’s apparent inability to score during an appearance on the “RoadTrippin Pod” with Channing Fyre in 2020, according to TotalProProspects.com.

LeBron James on Giannis:
“Channing said Giannis can’t score…and people went crazy…but I know…you have to break down the game (to understand Giannis can’t score)”
Giannis is averaging 32pts on 61% shooting in the NBA Finals and LeBron had a front row seat to witness it.

Well, LeBron James sure looks foolish now that the Bucks are up 3-2 in the NBA Finals and Giannis is averaging 32.2 points against the Suns.
I don’t care who you are, you have to admit that Giannis can do whatever he wants on the court at this point.
He’s literally 48 minutes of great basketball away from winning his first NBA title.

The question now is whether or not LeBron James plans on issuing a correction. Seeing as how he sat courtside for game five in Phoenix, he should have seen plenty of evidence to know Giannis has no issue scoring!

Once again, LeBron James just doesn’t know what he’s talking about. At this point, I’ve lost count of how many times he’s been wrong.
You can catch game six of the NBA Finals Tuesday night on ABC at 9:00. It’ll be fun to see if the Bucks can close this thing out.
