James was getting so excited about the smσιɡ that his cheeks were puffed up.
Superstar LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers had an unusual celebration that culminated in him passing something to Christian Wood and stomping on it while feigning to smoke it. What made it even stranger was that James had just missed a layup.
Halfway through the second quarter of the Lakers’ Sunday night home game against the Houston Rockets at Crypto.com Arena, a unique celebration took place.
38-year-old James used some English on a layup that tipped off the rim by the narrowest of margins. He stomped something out, glanced down at his hand, made a motion like he was shooting at it with a finger gun, and then performed the smσιɡ.
The four-time NBA champion became so engrossed in the smσƙعɡ celebration that he even had puffy cheeks that looked like they were containing smoke.
LeBron James smokes cannabis?
Fans on social media were quick to speculate on whether or not James smokes cannabis because the way he did the celebration suggests he was simulating smσƙιɡ a joint.
On Sunday night, James was anything but intoxicated. He was hot, if anything, since Dillon Brooks was protecting him again.
