LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers are currently on the high of winning the first-ever NBA In-Season Tournament.
It’s certainly a great achievement for the Purple and Gold after struggling to be a contending team over the last few seasons.
James played a crucial role in the Lakers going undefeated with a 7-0 record in the NBA In-Season Tournament.
Considering James is playing the 21st season of his career and will soon turn 39 years old, it makes the achievement even better for the Los Angeles Lakers superstar.
Many of James’ former teammates have already retired from the league, including Richard Jefferson.
Speaking of Jefferson, James recently gave fans a hilarious moment when he smacked his former Cleveland Cavaliers teammate in the back of the head, as revealed via ClutchPoints on Twitter.

Over the years, LeBron James has built a reputation for being an entertainer.
Sure, James’ primary job is to play basketball for the Los Angeles Lakers, but the four-time NBA champion never misses an opportunity to mess around with others.
Richard Jefferson may have played only two seasons with LeBron James for the Cleveland Cavaliers, but the two forged a strong bond in just two years.
Jefferson was also a part of the Cavaliers’ 2016 NBA Championship-winning roster.
He averaged just 5.4 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 0.7 assists per game during the 2016 playoffs, but Jefferson’s job wasn’t to stuff the box score when he was a member of the Cavaliers.
Instead, he was there on the team to be a veteran presence in the locker room.
