After defeating former NBA star Nate Robinson in a boxing fight, youtuber Jake Paul appears to have a new target. It is no other than the Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James.

Even though at first Paul was not fond of the idea to fight James, his recent tweet looks like a challenge for LeBron to fight. Paul, who was born in Cleveland, Ohio tweeted: “Let’s see who the real king of Ohio is?” and tagged James, who is also a native of Ohio (born in Akron).

Even if Paul’s tweet was indeed a challenge to LeBron, it is almost guaranteed that such a fight would not happen while the four-time NBA champion is not retired from basketball due to risk of injuries. And it does not seem to be near as James, who turns 36 in late December, recently signed a two-year extension with the Lakers which will keep him in LA until at least 2023.
