LeBron James passed Michael Jordan on the all-time scoring list in a loss to the Nuggets last night, and tributes poured in across the sports world congratulating him on the achievement.
The best tribute, however, came from former Cavs teammates Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye, who were asked to comment on The King’s accomplishment after Cleveland played at the Barclay’s Center. Not missing a beat, RJ and Frye launched into a routine where they jokingly mocked LeBron’s achievement, called him a ballhog, and asked why it took so long to finally pass MJ. Jefferson even tossed in a “You suck” to put the cherry on the sundae.
It’s good to see this Cavs’ comedy duo still has it.
