LeBron James Reveals What He And Ime Udoka Argued About (Video)

LeBron James and Ime Udoka got into a verbal confrontation during Saturday’s night’s NBA game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets.

With about eight minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, a wild sequence broke out that saw Cam Reddish, Taurean Prince, James, Udoka and multiple Rockets plays all get testy with one another.

Udoka was ultimately tossed from the game for his back-and-forth with James, which appeared to get pretty tense:

Udoka earned a technical earlier in the game, so his second one for the James brouhaha was a death knell.

After the game, James was asked what precisely occurred between him and Udoka.

James’ reply immediately went viral:

“Thanksgiving,” James said.

“How much we enjoyed Thanksgiving.”

When pressed on how ‘friendly’ their back-and-forth was, James offered a three-word response: “Yeah, it was.”

Either way, the Lakers earned a much-needed win on Saturday night and can now move on. Aside from their In-Season Tournament standing, L.A. is currently eyeing two big name players for a potential trade ahead of the deadline.

In addition, the Lakers are one of two frontrunners for Utah Jazz star Lauri Markkanen.

The next few weeks will be huge for James and Co. Currently they are 12-9 and seventh in the West, but key players are returning from injuries right now.

Can the Lakers make a run towards the end of December that will allow them to rise to the top of the conference at the beginning of 2024? Time will tell.
