Umm, what happened here?
LeBron James randomly just fell over on the Chase Center court Thursday night, and it was quite … strange.
During the final seconds of the second quarter of Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals between the Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors, James took a bizarre fall on the hardwood just randomly out of the blue. And no, he wasn’t touched by a single soul.
Before the buzzer sounded to send the game into halftime, Golden State tried to get one last shot attempt with a full-court pass that was ultimately deflected by Rui Hachimura. It appeared that James was going for the ball, but while doing so, his right leg seemingly gave out and he just fell on the court.
Wait … Why did LeBron fall down?? 💀 pic.twitter.com/JR68FMH27J

To me, it looks like LeBron‘s right leg gave out and he just fell over, but even then, it’s hard to tell. Regardless, it’s an all-around strange scene, especially considering it happened to a freak of nature like LBJ.
Which is something interesting to note … how did something like that happen to LeBron?
Now I don’t want to be one of those guys that does reckless speculation and accuses LeBron of declining because of something this simple, but all I’m saying is, it’s weird that this all of a sudden happened to a guy that things like this don’t happen to.
