I say it all the time, and I’ll say it again … LeBron is so damn cringe!
The Los Angeles Lakers squared off Saturday night against the Houston Rockets at Crypto.com Arena, getting a 107-97 victory to bring them to 12-9 on the season. However, the biggest headline of the game was the back-and-forth that popped off between Rockets head coach Ime Udoka and Lakers forward LeBron James.

In the fourth quarter with 8:35 remaining on the clock, the tension thickened when Los Angeles forward Cam Reddish bumped into Houston forward Tari Eason. When stoppage occurred, James and Udoka started chirping at each other, with referees hitting them both with technical fouls, and with it being Udoka’s second tech, he ended up getting ejected from the game.

Following the game, Udoka took a swift shot at the Lakers.
“I didn’t like our physicality,” said Udoka. “To kind of get punked by a team that’s not known for physicality or punking people is not a good sign.”
Hot damn! And while that was happening, LeBron decided to be cringe and tell a joke that literally nobody laughed at.

One ends up looking like a bit of a G (Udoka), while the other continues to make us all cringe (LeBron).
