It takes a lot of courage for any player to talk trash to LeBron James. James is the most accomplished player in the NBA and is a true living legend. And despite him being 37 years of age, James is playing at an extremely high level and is one of the best players in the league right now.
But Desmond Bane didn't fear LeBron James. Earlier this season, LeBron James and Desmond Bane had an altercation, and James was not happy about it. He told Desmond Bane that this would be the last time that he talked trash to him, warning him for disrespecting him during the game. But there was no word about what Bane said to LeBron James to get him so upset.
And now, we know what Bane said to LeBron James. Bane noticed that James was slow getting back on defense while the Grizzlies moved the ball in transition. After scoring the bucket and getting the and-1, Bane told LeBron James that he doesn't feel the need to get scared when he heard James running down.
"Them footsteps ain't scaring nobody."
Clearly, James was not thrilled about the trash talk, and let Bane know. But Bane had the support of his teammates. In fact, Ja Morant recently showed his support for Bane going up against LeBron James, as it showed that the Memphis Grizzlies were not scared of any player, no matter how great they are.
The Grizzlies are one of the best teams in the NBA right now and are playing at a very high level. Memphis has one of the youngest teams in the league and has been playing well beyond their years. The Grizzlies are expected to be a solid team in the NBA playoffs this season and improve on their performance last year.
