Lebron James is defended by Waka Flocka Flame against NBA scoring record critics

A. Waka Flocka Flame wants the public to treat LeBron James with some respect after he broke Kareem Abdul-NBA Jabbar’s scoring record.

The “Hard In Da Paint” rapper wanted explanations when it came to why people continued to criticize LeBron even after an accomplishment of this stature, in which the four-time NBA champion broke a record that many had believed unbreakable for over 40 years.

What the fuck did LeBron do to y’all n-ggas?” he asked in a clip posted to social media this week. “Why LeBron can’t be great? Why n-ggas gotta say, ‘He got five years over Kareem. He got more years than Kobe Bryant.’ N-gga, he LeBron! Put some respect on his name. That’s fucking LeBron James, my boy.”

Flocka continued by making it apparent where LBJ stands among the greatest basketball players of all time, saying: “Y’all n-ggas hating. That’s the G.O.A.T. The fucking G.O.A.T. [and] y’all better realize it. The G.O.A.T.!”


On Tuesday (February 7), LeBron shattered Kareem’s record for the most points ever scored in a regular season in Los Angeles’ Crypto.com Arena. James scored 38 points in a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder that he lost 133–130, raising his career tally to 38,390 points, three more than The Captain.

LBJ was met courtside by his longtime buddy JAY-Z after breaking the scoring mark with a fadeaway jumper in the third quarter. JAY-Z was one of several famous people present, including LL COOL J, Usher, Floyd Mayweather, Denzel Washington, and Shannon Sharpe.

Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Snoop Dogg, Rihanna, and others sent their congrats to the NBA’s new scoring champion in a video tribute for NBA on TNT.

“To see you with this type of accomplishment, it always gives a confirmation of: you can be great, no matter where you come from,” Kendrick said. “From the time you went to the league and you had the doubters and the naysayers and the people that think you wouldn’t take it this far, you proved them wrong, dawg.”

RiRi added: “I am so grateful to witness this moment in history. My favorite thing about being a LeBron James fan is just watching you prove yourself over and over again, against all odds and all doubts.

“Thank you for repping for all of us. Keep striving for greatness always, and congratulations, King James.”

The 25-30 Lakers will start their playoff push on Thursday night (February 9) with a home game against Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks, who are 37 and 17. They finally parted ways with Russell Westbrook in a three-way trade to acquire D’Angelo Russell, Malik Beasley, and Jarred Vanderbilt.
