NBA Offseason Drama Is Better Than Their In-Season Games
Thought the NBA was only fun to watch in season? It only heats up more offseason, where players settle disputes off court in the Twittersphere.
There’s always an arrest or two, a la Taj Gibson, who was arrested in early July around 2:45 AM in Queens for making an illegal u-turn – with a suspended license.
If you know the NBA, you know it’s hard to keep a close eye on every single player and their massively inflated egos.
Unless you’re Lebron James. About a week ago, all eyes were on him when he posted this video of himself working out.
The video got close to 9 million views and a lot of love. But not everyone bowed down to the beast.
A few days later, Golden State Warrior Steph Curry (affectionately known to some as “Keyboard Curry” for his and wife Ayesha Curry’s habit of calling others out on social media) mocked the video at a friends wedding. Lebron’s teammate Kyrie Irving cheered him on in the background.

Shortly thereafter, Twitter lit up with responses and memes.

No word yet if Lebron has received any ice for that burn. Stay tuned for whatever craziness happens next.
