Sleeping with a championship trophy isn’t that out of the ordinary.

Neither, I imagine, is talking to those trophies. But I can’t think of a moment captured on camera of a player or coach talking to a trophy … until now.

After the Los Angeles Lakers won the 2020 NBA championship on Sunday, LeBron James was cradling the Larry O’Brien trophy, and his teammate JaVale McGee happened to film a moment in which James spoke directly to it.

“I can’t believe you,” he said. “I can’t believe you cheated me for the last four years. What is wrong with you?”

Of course, the last four years has seen the Raptors and Warriors (twice) win titles after James did with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016.
