Lakers superstar LeBron James and Lavar Ball have had disagreements in the past, but they shared a pregame hug ahead of King’s return to the Drew League over the weekend.
They exchanged touches and hugs as LeBron entered the gym and exchanged a few words.
The NBA world reacted to the couple’s friendly exchange on social media.
“Now I hear Lavar,” one user said. “You know Gelo can take a few shots for you.”
“I miss LaVar entertaining us,” another replied.
“They behave as if two legends cannot coexist.”
“Two guys who could beat Michael Jordan 1 on 1,” another fan wrote.
“LaVar is very fond of: “Lamelo, really, this guy is changing them for them.”
“One person is booing,” another user exclaimed.
LeBron easily lost 42 points en route to winning the Drew League on Saturday.
