The 2022 NBA All-Star was memorable for a lot of reasons. Apart from the All-Star game itself, the league honored the 75 greatest players in the history of the NBA. Fans finally witnessed a moment between LeBron James and Michael Jordan as well.
Speaking of LeBron James, even before the All-Star game began, King gave fans a memorable moment. Yes, we are talking about when the Los Angeles Lakers superstar was apparently unable to control his laughter during the anthem.
Most tied James' laughter to the anthem performance given by American singer Macy Gray. The clip of LeBron struggling to control his laughter instantly trended on social media platforms.
Evidently, Gray saw the trending video of James allegedly laughing and she recently addressed the same.
Via New York Post:
"Y’all think LeBron was really laughing at me? I heard he wasn’t but maybe."
While Gray tried to shrug off the fact that LeBron was indeed laughing at her National Anthem performance, she did end her statement on an open note. Well, let's be honest here, we can see in the clips and images that James is indeed trying to hold his laughter.
Regardless of what Macy might say, the truth is out there. Anyway, the NBA All-Star weekend is already over and LeBron & the Lakers have more pressing issues to take care of.
With the season entering its final stages, they are still struggling to book a place in the NBA postseason. Moreover, after their recent defeat against the Los Angeles Clippers, the Lakers are closer to even being out of the play-in tournament than booking a spot for the playoffs.
They still have some time to make one last push before the regular season is over, but judging by their current form it seems like a herculean task.
