LeBron James Loves Hilarious Video Breaking Down How LeBron Would Respond To James Harden Trade
James Harden is now officially with the Brooklyn Nets.
The trade that was reported by ESPN Wednesday now brings Harden together with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.
For all you future NBA GM’s out there and NBA fans, here’s the full details on what ended up being a four-team trade per ESPN involving Caris LeVert, Victor Oladipo, Jarrett Allen, and more players and picks.
Here was LeBron’s initial thoughts on the trade, at least what he said about the trade in a press conference the day it all went down:
“Don’t really have too much of a reaction,” James said in a press conference. “Obviously trades and things happen every year. For me, my main focus on what we do here and how we continue to get better. That was the case today (January 13). The trades happened today and I couldn’t allow myself to kind of indulge in that knowing that we had a team to play tonight. So, my main focus today (January 13) was on the Thunder. “
Okay, ‘Bron, playing it casual. Locked in per usual on your next opponent. It worked out because LeBron and the Lakers ended up winning 128-99 that evening. LeBron had 26 points, 6 boards, and 7 assists (in case you were wondering).
But, looks like LeBron got a good laugh over the trade after all. The next day, LeBron retweeted this video:
Mark Phillips released a hilarious video acting how LeBron would respond to the news of the Harden trade, including portraying LeBron calling up his former teammate, Kyrie Irving.
LeBron, of course, won a championship with Kyrie in Cleveland. And had some great championship battles against KD and the Warriors.
If the Lakers end up making it to the Finals again for a repeat, could this new squad be a problem for this team? Or, do you think another team will make it out of the West and the East? As we know, it takes time to develop chemistry within a team so how do you think this will work out in Brooklyn? Let me know in the comments.
In the meantime, here’s the new ‘Big 3’ in Brooklyn.
