LeBron James and his Los Angeles Lakers are ready to take on the Golden State Warriors and Stephen Curry tonight. This is the best play-in tournament game this year, and nobody wants to miss it.
Both Lakers and Warriors have had seasons full of struggles and now will try to clinch the 7th seed in the Western Conference that will send them to Phoenix to play the Suns. While some fans are nervous about the upcoming game, players are just chilling, waiting for their time to take the court.
One of those is LeBron James, who took advantage of the day off the league had on Monday and went to party with Canadian rapper Drake. The 34-year-old shared a series of pics with James and more friends laughing.
In the pictures, you can see Drake, James, other artists like Giveon or Michael B. Jordan, as well as Rich Paul.
Even though this raised some eyebrows around the league, it's not like LeBron skipped practice or something to hang out with Drake. Instead, the King is focused on the job, and he's ready to go against Steph and the Warriors tonight.
Perhaps this was the way he found to relax ahead of a big game like this one. If the Lakers lose, they will have another opportunity to make it to the playoffs. If they win, that means they'll get the 7th seed in the West.
In case you were wondering whether LeBron was going to enter safety protocol, it was revealed that everybody at the party was fully vaccinated so that won't be necessary for him.
