Tom Brady saw LeBron James win his fourth NBA championship title and decided to praise him with the most amazing meme ever.
Just a week ago, Brady himself had a mental mistake in his team’s loss to the Chicago Bears. During that play, he put up four fingers up signaling he thought fourth down was coming up when it had actually just happened.
Even though Brady has gotten a lot of hate because of this mistake, he decided to turn it into a funny moment as he used it to praise LeBron James. Check out what he shared:
After the amazing win, James told reporters that he the Lakers are getting back to the pinnacle of the sport:
“We just want our respect. Rob wants his respect. Coach Vogel wants his respect. Organization wants their respect. Lakers Nation wants their respect. And I want my damn respect, too.”
He also spoke about people doubting him and how it made him work even harder:
“Personally, thinking I had something to prove fuels me. It fueled me over this last year and a half, since my injury. It fueled me because no matter what I’ve done in my career up to this point, there’s still little rumblings of doubt or, you know, comparing me to the history of the game, and: ‘Has he done this? Has he done that?’ Having that in my head, having that in my mind, saying to myself, why not still have something to prove, I think it fuels me.”
Later on, NBA’s commissioner Adam Silver explained that the Finals MVP trophy might even one say be named after James. If that is not the best type of recognition, we don’t know what is. James was also the unanimous Finals MVP, so he has surely proven all his haters wrong with this one!
