LeBron James schools young player during three point shoot out for daring to come at the king
LeBron James had to take a young boy to school and show him that it’s better to bow to the King than challenge him to a dual on the court.
James was challenged to a three-point shooting contest by the Gabe Cupps, the teenage friend of his son LeBron ‘Bronny’ James Jr. And of course, the Los Angeles Laker couldn’t back down and chose to instead show the young boy what it’s like to get spanked on the court by a basketball legend.
The two players squared up side by side and took shots, each sinking the ball into the hoop from a good distance away. Shocking to no one but Cupps the teen couldn’t beat the All-Star player.
When Cupps last shot bounced off the rim, James threw the ball and it was nothing but net as he sank the shot.
James took to social media to call out the kid who thought he could beat a legend.
“I got called out by my guy and in my opinion the best shooter (he can do more too) for the Class of 2023 @gcupps23 today,” James wrote on his Instagram account.
