The 20-year veteran scored 40 points and played all but four seconds of the Lakers' 113-111 Game 4 loss to the Denver Nuggets with his last-second shot, which would've forced overtime blocked at the buzzer, per ESPN.

The 38-year-old played in all 17 Lakers playoff games while still managing a right foot injury that forced him to miss a month late in the regular season.

In a season where he became NBA's all-time leading scorer, he averaged a superb 28.9 points in 55 games.

Brown rips into James

The 2001 No. 1 draft pick recorded a seven-minute video to slam James' Game 4 performance. He criticized his last-second shot that would've tied the game.

“I have never seen a guy of your caliber, supposed caliber, you don’t even get a shot off? You’re probably the best scorer in the game, you got all these points. But you were looking for a bailout, again... You can’t say that you’re great. You gotta do great things. That’s where greatness lies,” Brown said, via SI.

Brown was drafted by the Washington Wizards. In his 606 games in the NBA from 2001 to 2013, he averaged 6.6 points and 5.5 rebounds.

He’s often considered one of the biggest busts in NBA history after failing to live up to the high expectations.

ESPN analyst, Stephen A Smith delivered an iconic rant against the 41-year-old, calling him a 'bonafide scrub' a few years ago.
