This (bleeping) guy LeBron, man…

LeBron James happened to be watching NBA League Pass on Monday night, and while doing so, he took to Twitter to share his thoughts about what he was seeing — and didn’t hesitate to be blunt about it, saying that his son Bronny is “definitely better” than current players in the league.

Bronny James, who currently plays for Sierra Canyon High School in Los Angeles, is eligible for the 2024 NBA Draft.

“Man Bronny definitely better than some of these cats I’ve been watching on league pass today,” tweeted LeBron. “S*** lightweight hilarious [four sideways laughing emojis].”

LeBron, of course, didn’t go into specifics on who exactly he was talking about.

Listed at 6’3″ and 180 pounds, Bronny James is ranked No. 28 in the Top 100 high school rankings for the Class of 2023, putting him as a four-star college recruit.

What did I just get done saying in a recent blog?

How I was starting to like LeBron James, how I purchased his Ruffles Flamin’ Hot Cheddar & Sour Cream chips, how I watched his “Space Jam 2” movie with my kids, how I was starting to let go of my distaste for him after taking away all of that glory from my Miami Heat … I threw you a damn bone, LeBron! I know you want to be liked, and I was starting to like you! (RELATED: Grant Williams Talks Sh*t To Donovan Mitchell About Making Both Free Throws, Misses Them Both As C’s Lose Epically)

And then you do this!

And then he had these cappin’ tweets as well:

You’re such a cornball, LeBron. I just can’t rock with it.
