CJ McCollum burns LeBron James for his theatrics


As you surely know by now, the Lakers grabbed the 7th seed with a dramatic win against the Warriors 103 - 100. The game was full of amazing highlights, courtesy of Steph Curry and LeBron James, but in the end, LeBron won the "play" of the night with a performance that immediately went viral. 

A few plays earlier, LeBron flopped and faked he got hit in the face to draw an offensive foul. Steve Kerr challenged the call, and it was overturned. That played a part in everyone mocking LeBron for his theatrics after the foul. There's no doubt Draymond fouled Lebron, and obviously, LeBron's eye was affected by this. But if you just saw James' performance and not the foul, you'd thought he got stabbed in the eye with a knife. CJ McCollum summed it up really well. 

McCollum established himself as the NBA's best Twitter follow during last year's bubble. His back and forth with Dame about the Clippers implosion vs. the Nuggets are still funny as hell. That time, there was baggage and beef, particularly with Paul George, so it's no surprise the Blazers duo had a bit of fun. Last night, it was LeBron's acting performance that McCollum couldn't resist, and he wasn't the only one.
