Above all else, LeBron James may be a great basketball player, but his ultra-sporty looks are also impressive. A former player didn’t hide the fact that the Chosen One scared him … Especially since he literally knocked him out during his career!
In normal times we cannot say that Lebron James or a particularly violent player. And yet his nudge against Isaiah Stewart against the Pistons has been one of the big talking points of the last few days, mostly because it escalated in a big mess with the pivot. After a match was interrupted, the Laker was at least able to return to the field quickly, especially since he was recovering from an injury.
Since then, however, the king has received a lot of criticism from observers who question his behavior. Stephen A. Smith even went so far as to say so LBJ was never feared by his colleagues... A remark that caught more than one catch, including JJ Redick, who was present during the show, and which immediately contradicted the analyst’s words.
JJ Redick tells a wild anecdote about LeBron James
LeBron’s longtime opponent, the retired marksman, was in a good position to talk about himself, and most importantly, what it was like to face him. He’s also added a layer to his personal podcast that tells a brutal moment, to say the least, that he experienced in the 2000s.
“I’m 400% underpaid by the Lakers, nobody is counting on me”

When you step into a playoff track with LeBron, you certainly have a fear of who he is as a player – physically. I caught a foul on LeBron in my fifth year in Orlando. I understood his spin move perfectly. In the end, I had eleven stitches under my eye. And I stood there knowing he was going to do that spin move. And did I stand there in fear? Absolutely.
Because yes, we shouldn’t forget that the Chosen One is also a wild beast of 2m03 for almost 115 kilos. And all in muscle mass, without a gram too much! Enough to respond to almost any physical challenge, including snowshoeing. Knowing how much he attracts two-man grips, it only makes sense … and his timeless physique clearly gives him the ability to play the movers.
JJ Redick remembers cash, there are some things that must scare LeBron James. Imagine a freight car racing overhead at full speed … you get a pretty sharp image of the king entering the painting.
