Former NBA champion Richard Jefferson compared reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo to Scottie Pippen, saying he needs Michael Jordan. Jefferson’s tweet was seen by former number two pick Jay Williams.
“So LeBron was a Pippen with D Wade once. Nothing wrong with that until you get over the hump,” Williams tweeted in response referring to the time when LeBron James and Dwyane Wade played together for the Miami Heat.
LeBron saw Williams’ tweet and it didn’t sit well with him and he was clearly angry. “Explain to me what the fux I gotta do with this subject matter! I’m over here minding my damn business preparing for Houston. And by the way I ain’t never been nobody but my damn self! Shit!” the Los Angeles Lakers superstar tweeted.
