The LA Lakers will face champions the Denver Nuggets on Sunday when the post-season begins with hopes of securing another championship.

In a video shared on social media, James is seen jamming to Bella Shmurda's Philo and Burna Boy's City Boys. James showed off his Afrobeat skills as he grooves perfectly to the sounds.

Meanwhile, the 39-year-old declared his readiness for the games against Nikola Jokic's Nuggets as they try to eliminate the champions.

"He’s one of the best players to ever play this game. It’s that simple," said James, as quoted by Sports Illustrated.
"He does everything. He does everything. The most important thing is he changes the way his teammates think about their own play. When you’re able to inspire your teammates to play at a level that sometimes they don’t even feel like they can play at, that’s a true testament of a great one."

James, who joined the LA Lakers in 2018, has four rings to his credit and holds the record of being the highest scorer in the NBA.

Burna Boy watches Celtics beat GSW

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Nigerian artist Burna Boy was courtside to witness the Boston Celtics' 52-point demolition of 2022 NBA champions Golden State Warriors.

The Celtics registered their third 50-point win this season after the latest blowout win, extending their winning streak to 11 games.

The City Boys singer watched Jaylen Brown and Jason Tatum dismantle the Warriors early in the first half. The hosts built a 44-point half-time lead, their largest half-time lead in franchise history, per ESPN.
