On Friday night, the Dallas Mavericks hosted the Los Angeles Lakers in what became the “Game of the Season” thus far.
Sure, the season is only two weeks old, but that didn’t stop last night’s game from becoming an instant classic. LeBron James reminded everyone who the best player in the league is, while Luka Doncic showed he’s well on his way to becoming a superstar.
Both players finished with triple-doubles on the night. Doncic managed to do so even after taking a few shots to the head and needing stitches after the game.
In the end, LeBron lifted his team to a 119-110 overtime win.
Following the epic performances from LeBron and Luka, the King had a message for the Mavericks youngster.
“You’re a bad motherf*****,” LeBron said to Doncic.

With the win, the Lakers moved to 4-1 on the season as the Mavericks moved to 3-2 with the loss.
