LeBron James Has a Moment of Clumsiness in Mid-Air, Twitter Reacts with Father Time Memes
LeBron James was the center of attention in Game 2 of the Los Angeles Lakers' conference final trilogy against the Denver Nuggets. After securing a lob from Rui Hachimura, James went up for what was supposed to be a signature breakaway dunk, but it all went wrong. Cleveland Cavaliers guard Donovan Mitchell turned into a meme catalyst as he watched the ball slip out of LeBron's hands, leaving the four-time NBA champion to exclaim, "Yup, that's me. You're probably wondering how I ended up in this situation."
The incident caused "Father Time" to trend on Twitter, a reminder that even the greatest fall victim to the effects of aging. But James showed he still had it, ending the first half with 10 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists, and proving he can still deliver on the court. As Donovan Mitchell said, "Never seen that," but maybe it was the push James needed to light a fire under him. Stay tuned for more on their match-up!
