CJ McCollum roasts LeBron James flop in Warriors game

LeBron James CJ McCollum Lakers Blazers Warriors


LeBron James battled adversity to lift his Los Angeles Lakers past his long-time rival in Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry. But apparently, not everyone is convinced.

Count Portland Trail Blazers star CJ McCollum as one of those skeptical of LeBron James’ impairment. The Lakers star got poked in the eye and proceeded to talk about it in the postgame interview, but McCollum wasn’t buying it one bit.
CJ went on Twitter to pile on the Lakers icon for his acting chops, also claiming that it was a sly move to try to get some much-needed rest amid a hotly contested play-in battle.

Check out the Draymond Green eye poke on LeBron James to see for yourself. The foul made on the Lakers star was initially reviewed as a possible flagrant, before being downgraded to a common foul.

But LeBron James didn’t let his supposed blurry vision stop him from coming up clutch. Bron hit the huge dagger over Stephen Curry to put his Lakers up for good. But CJ McCollum wasn’t done as the Blazers star simply laughed off the ‘3 rims’ remark coming from James before calling it a night.

“After Draymond’s finger to the eye, I was literally seeing three rims out there. I just shot for the middle one”

The Lakers and Blazers could potentially play each other in the second round if they both advance. It’ll be interesting to see if LeBron James takes note of this slight from CJ McCollum.
