If you want an honest answer, ask LeBron James.

“Kiss my ass,” he said.

But he said more.

“Anybody that says that ‘LeBron why would he do that while he’s playing? Is he showing a sign of weakness? He’s buddy-buddy with guys he’s going against.’ Tell them they can kiss my a–,” James said.

“With a smile too.”

Here’s more context: James embraced Zion Williamson after the Lakers’ 122-114 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday night.

Williamson scored 35 points and hauled in 7 rebounds in the Pelicans’ loss.

James was asked about being buddy-buddy with players from opposite teams and he gave his answer.

For those keeping score at home: Zion Williamson a Rookie of the Year candidate who is currently averaging 24.1 points, and 6.8 rebounds per contest for the New Orleans Pelicans.

The No. 1 overall pick in last year’s NBA Draft out of Duke, he was listed as 6’7″ and 285 pounds and averaged 22.1 points and 8.9 rebounds per game last season.

Williamson was also named the unanimous ACC player of the year last season. Last season on his HBO series, The Shop, James was just as vocal about Williamson.

“The one thing that I noticed with his one year at Duke [is] that his energy was infectious,” said James last spring.

“Every possession it seemed like he could make a difference on the outcome of the game.”

A three-time NBA Champion, LeBron James has been quite vocal about the next generation of NBA players. He recently credited Williamson, the Memphis Grizzlies’ Ja Morant, Boston Celtics swingman, Jayson Tatum and Atlanta Hawks’ Trae Young as the next crop of NBA talent that will make a splash.

“The kid is super special,” James said of Ja Morant following the Lakers’ 105-88 loss to the Grizzlies on Saturday.

“Like I said when we just played him in L.A., Memphis got a great one. They got a great one. So, the sky’s the limit for the kid.”

The league’s elderstatesmen, LeBron James is posting gargantuan stats for the Los Angeles Lakers. James is posting 25.5 points, 7.8 rebounds, 10.6 assists and 1.2 steals per game.

In a recent chat with Los Angeles Lakers legend, Magic Johnson, he gushed over James’ performance during the 2019-2020 NBA season.

In fact, Johnson told me that James was having an ‘MVP-Type’ season.

“He’s just doing an amazing job,” Johnson told me of James.

“He’s the leader in assists in the NBA and he’s averaging almost close to 30 points per game every single night as well. He’s really having an MVP-type season.”

“Now he’s really truly playing the point guard. He was point-forward before,” Johnson said. “I think we do play similar and we have similar ways in terms of coming down and making our teammates better. We won championships the same way. Our games are much alike, especially now that the ball is in his hands most of the time now as a real, true point guard.”
