After Kevin Durant’s recent tweet left NBA and Hip Hop/Rap fans confused, another NBA sensation joins Durant in commenting on Jay-Z’s music. It’s none other than the widely known rap enthusiast, Lakers superstar LeBron James. Durant was a bit more ambiguous with his message to Jay-Z. However, LeBron was a little more direct about his respect for the rap legend.

While both these superstars had their friendly exchanges with Jay-Z, the two are set to face each other on Christmas Day. Undoubtedly, the most exciting matchup of this season so far, all NBA fans have been anticipating this matchup for too long.

If Kevin Durant successfully comes out of the league’s Health and Safety Protocols as scheduled, he will be available on Christmas Day to face the Lakers. This would mean that these two legends will face each other for the first time since the 2018 NBA Finals where the Cavaliers were swept 4-0. The last time these two faced each other, Durant was with the Warriors and LeBron was with the Cavaliers. Jay-Z would surely not want to miss this matchup.
