LeBron James delivered a message to all his critics on Sunday after the Los Angeles Lakers narrowly beat the Denver Nuggets in Game 2 of their Western Conference Finals game.
James told reporters that anyone could talk about any type of stuff they wanted, but when the time comes to step up, “they’re their pants,” according to the Washington Post.

“Anyone can speak from the outside. But if they got in the ring or if they got in the arena, probably 10 out of 10 times, they would’ve been… their pants off.
It was not clear what reviews James was talking about.

“I want to dedicate this fight to all the first responders, to all the military people out there,” he said, according to MMAFighting.com. “This world wouldn’t be safe without you guys keeping us safe, and not these awake athletes. I’ve had enough of those thornless cowards like LeBron James.
It is not known what made James a so-called “thornless coward”. James formed a group to get African Americans to vote and fight voter suppression during election season. He also founded a school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. According to the New York Times, 90% of its students met or exceeded their reading and math goals at “I Promise” school in 2019.
Nonetheless, James scored 26 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and had four assists.
