The Los Angeles Lakers seem to have powered up in recent games. Their main character has been none other than LeBron James. The ‘King’ has delivered ever since his return and is showing no signs of slowing down. However, he is never short of comedic moments. And that is exactly what happened against the Orlando Magic when he tried on Wendell Carter Jr.’s glasses. James trolled himself for doing that on the court.

The Lakers took care of business after beating the Magic through a typical Lakers performance. After being down at halftime, the Lake Show went all out, led by LeBron. They put on a show in the third quarter going on a 23-0 run. But while in between all that, Dwight threw a pass off Carter’s face that caused his lenses to pop off, and LeBron was quick to pick them up.

The Magic even trolled the Akron Hammer. However, James took a dig at himself for being the joker on the floor.

LeBron James trolls himself

The Lakers sure enjoyed their game against the Orlando Magic. Not only did they lead a dominating comeback into the game, but they looked like a unit on the floor. They played well on the defensive end and were efficient on offense. The orchestrator of the game was LeBron, who was everywhere. Posting a triple double with 30 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists and three blocks, the ‘King’ left nothing on the floor.

However, being LeBron, he had to pull off some antics on the court. Hence, he wore Wendell Carter Jr’s lenses after they fell off. He posted the clip on his Instagram and trolled himself for doing things like that. He said, “What the heck is wrong with me!?!?!?! Out there just having a good time while doing what I love to do!” Several players also got behind him for pulling it off.

Despite being in Year 19, James is just looking for an opportunity to lighten things up. He had the whole arena on their feet last night. Being a true showman for the crowd, LeBron did his best to entertain and did a damn good job at it.

He continues to defy the way age works, being one of the top players in the world at the age of 36. He has now scored 30 points in five of his last seven games. Not having Anthony Davis has not slowed him down one bit as James continues to go to work. If LeBron can continue playing this way, do you think the Lakers can beat the Nets on Christmas day?
