LeBron James Sent NSFW Message to Kings After Dropping 14 Points in 4th Quarter to Finish With 31 and Seal Lakers Win

The Los Angeles Lakers were on the verge of losing to the Sacramento Kings at home for the second time season before LeBron James took matters into his own hands. The four-time MVP scored 14 of his game-high 31 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Lakers to a 122-114 victory.

LeBron also sent an NSFW message to the Kings and possibly the rest of the NBA.

LeBron James screams NSFW message after tough basket

With the Lakers up 116-112, LeBron drove to the basket and made a tough left-handed layup while getting fouled to essentially seal the win for the purple and gold. After making the shot, he turned to the Kings’ bench and yelled, “I’m a mother fu**ing problem bi***.”

The Lakers improved to 20-19 and have won three consecutive games. LeBron finished the night with 31 points, five rebounds, and five assists in 36 minutes while shooting 12-of-26 from the field, 3-of-10 from beyond the arc, and 4-of-5 from the free-throw line. He has scored at least 25 points in nine consecutive games, the only player age 36 years or older to accomplish that feat in NBA history.

Without LeBron’s heroics, the Lakers probably lose to the Kings. However, the four-time champion believes his squad won the game due to another reason.

LeBron James: “We won the game because we did not turn the ball over”

The Lakers average 15.5 turnovers per game. However, they only had five against the Kings, and LeBron thinks that’s why LA beat Sacramento.

“Well, that’s the reason we won the game,” LeBron said, via ESPN. “We won the game because we did not turn the ball over tonight. And when we get shots at the goal, we can be very dangerous. And we weren’t shooting the ball well at all, and because we didn’t turn the ball over, we caught fire. We caught fire, because we got shots at the goal and we didn’t turn the ball over.”

The Kings turned the ball over 18 times, leading to 21 points for the Lakers. LeBron and Co. still have a long way to go before we can call them playoff contenders, but with the way LBJ is playing, the Lakers can’t be slept on anymore as a potential roadblock for contenders.

The King is doing things players shouldn’t be able to do at 37

LeBron is 37 and in his 19th season. He’s played in 10 Finals and over 1,330 regular-season games. However, the 17-time All-Star is still arguably the best player in the game, and his presence alone makes the Lakers a dangerous team.

King James is averaging 28.6 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 6.5 assists on the season. He’s second in the league in scoring and leads the NBA in 30-point games. We have never seen a 37-year-old dominate the way LeBron has. He’s averaging the most points for a player 37 years or older and carrying the Lakers on his broad shoulders while Anthony Davis is out and Russell Westbrook continues to figure out how to fit in Frank Vogel’s offense.

Unless they make a drastic trade to get more shooting and better defenders, the Lakers won’t win the championship this season. However, if LeBron can continue his absurd play and remain healthy, LA could be a team contenders such as the Phoenix Suns, Golden State Warriors, and Utah Jazz won’t want to face in the playoffs. After all, betting against LeBron is not a wise move.
