In a light-hearted and amusing moment, as the Lakers assembled on the court with just 50 seconds remaining in the game, LeBron James continued his playful relationship with the camera. Adding a touch of hilarity, James used a water cup he held in his hand to cover the camera, all the while looking at the camera and creating another memorable spectacle with the fans behind the screens.

Mirroring their recent reputation, the Lakers committed a substantial number of turnovers. However, the impact was somewhat mitigated by their accumulation of 21 fastbreak points. Additionally, the Lakers asserted their dominance in the paint, amassing 64 points – a notable 20-point advantage over OKC.

A dominant display for the Lakers resulted in a much-needed victory, but LeBron’s moment with the camera with a minute left is sure to be remembered by the fans for days to come.

Fans can’t stop chuckling at James’ hilarious moment

Fans swiftly turned to social media to share their reactions to LeBron James’ amusing moment on the court.

@JustAFan499547 was quick to appreciate the playful and childish glimpses that James often offers to the fans. The fan humorously coined the term “Lekiddo” to capture the essence of James’ entertaining antics.

@playoffriser_ wasted no time in trolling LeBron James’ fans, sarcastically noting that Scottie Pippen never engaged in such antics. Probably paving a way for yet another comparison between James and Michael Jordan?

Meanwhile, @MaldKid took a glimpse into the future, predicting that someone would soon use the clip to create a video edit emphasizing LeBron James as the greatest of all time.

True to the comment section tradition surrounding LeBron James, @GoldenstateAce found a way to bring up Michael Jordan, insinuating that James might have been showcasing the number of losses MJ had in the finals with the cup.

On a lighter note, @JB233_ chuckled at the sight of James but admitted to the difficulty in pinpointing the exact reason of their amusement.
