LeBron James took a not-so-subtle shot at Lonzo Ball tonight.
The Cleveland Cavaliers took the floor for warmups tonight ahead of the team’s game against the Chicago Bulls. Among the Cavs joining the shoot-around was the team’s star, LeBron James.
Now, there’s nothing out of the ordinary about those two statements, until we show you the video of how LeBron warmed up tonight.
The Cavs star clearly took a shot at how UCLA star freshman Lonzo Ball shoots the ball.
Here’s LeBron during his warmups.

Lonzo Ball declared for the NBA after his team’s loss to Kentucky in the Elite Eight, and might have to get ready for a little trash talk from The King. LeBron likes being known as a business man, and upstanding citizen, but every now and then he takes a shot at another player — which is the case here.
Of course, LeBron isn’t the only one who has mocked Lonzo Ball’s shooting form, and he surely won’t be the last.
At the end of the day, as long as the ball goes in the hoop, who cares what the shot looks like?
Now we’ll wait and see if LaVar Ball has anything to say about this.
