On Thursday night, LeBron James and Lonzo Ball faced each other for the first time on the court as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 121-112. After the game, both James and Ball shared a moment — albeit a bit odd as both James and Ball were covering their mouths with their jerseys — which social media instantly took notice of. The cryptic messages shared between the two basketball stars soon sparked a bunch of hilarious memes, which can be seen below.
Though at first it was unknown what the two had shared with each other, as it turns out, there’s an audio of the encounter. The transcript was then posted by Reddit user and was later confirmed by ESPN:
“Find your zone and just stay f*cking locked in. The media is going to ask you what I told you right now. Tell them nothing. Just be aggressive every single day. It’s white noise to you. That’s all it is. All right? Let’s go.”
After peeping the memes below, check out our exclusive interview with LaVar Ball.
