Rudy Gay is impressed by the accomplishments of LeBron James and found a new nickname for the leader of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Gay called the Lakers star a ‘Decepticon’, the main antagonist of the Otobots in the Transformers multimedia franchise.

“It’s crazy. Yeah. The thing about it is, I played, like you said, these 14 years for me. I’ve had injuries, I’ve done all of that. To see LeBron, at this point in his career, still be healthy and still be able to play at that pace, he’s like a Decepticon or something, man,” Gay told Wosny Lambre of The Athletic.

James is averaging 25.7 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 10.6 assists per game this season.
