One of the game’s announcers clearly thought it was a message directed for his ex-Cavs teammate … saying James “looked right at him.”
Tristan’s reaction is priceless … giving a sheepish look as the Lakers went on to take the win, 122-114.
Now, LeBron and Thompson have remained tight for years — they played 4 seasons together (winning a title in 2016) … and have remained close since LBJ joined the Lakers in 2018.
It’s been a difficult stretch for Thompson — on Monday, he revealed he fathered a child with a Houston woman and publicly apologized to his ex, Khloe Kardashian, and daughter, True, in the announcement.
LeBron’s outburst most likely wasn’t a personal jab at his buddy … but still, it couldn’t have felt good.
