The LeBron James lie meme is a popular viral joke among NBA fans.
This meme originated from an old clip of James predicting that Kobe Bryant would score 70 points on the night he scored 81 points. Fans have noticed LeBron’s pattern of “creative embellishments” over the years and turned it into a meme about him predicting various scores. world events.
However, one of James’ old predictions was actually correct.
A quote a teenage LeBron made about Michael Jordan actually ended up foreshadowing his own greatness.
LeBron was still a high school student when he made his self-fulfilling prophecy in his SLAM diary in 2002. His statement was about Jordan’s comeback with the Wizards at the time.
It read: “A 38-year-old still averaging over 25 points per game? I root for him more than anyone right now.”
Now, the quote is popping up on social media, and NBA fans are in awe of the prophetic nature of LeBron’s words.
“Wow…he foreshadowed what he was going to do,” one fan said.
Another commented: “Brother showing GOAT level greatness.”
“This is so hard now lol,” wrote a third.
“Prophet,” joked a fourth.
LeBron, entering his 21st season in the NBA, is living up to his own wise words. In 18 games this season, the 38-year-old Lakers star is averaging 25.1 points and recently added another record to his growing NBA resume.
In a 44-point loss to the Philadelphia 76ers — the biggest loss of LeBron’s career — he became the league’s all-time minutes leader.
Taking into account the regular season and playoffs, James currently has 66,319 career minutes played, surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s 66,297 minutes.
Most would agree that LeBron has officially surpassed Kareem as the “greatest player of all time” and is now chasing one man – Michael Jordan.
The LeBron James Family Foundation recently paid tribute to “His Air” at the new LeBron James Museum in Akron, Ohio.
The museum houses several memorabilia pieces from James’ childhood apartment, including a photo of a young LeBron with Jordan.
LeBron wrote in his personal diary: “I didn’t play with Mike, but I did play with a lot of other NBA players, and I talked to Jordan for a while.
“He didn’t give me any advice, he just told me to keep my head above water. We all went to his restaurant for dinner – steak and mashed potatoes.”
