“Wow!!! It’s about to be legendary!!!!” writes actor musician Hollywood star Jamie Foxx. That’s seven exclamation points even before he adds three crown emojis, a signal to LeBron “King” James. What brought about the exclamations and crowns? It was James handing over his well-worn and well-earned #23 to new Lakers superstar Anthony Davis. You know who else liked it? Not just Lakers fans either…
None other than NBA legend and the greatest small scoring guard ever to touch a basketball chimed in. Yup, the great Allen Iverson said “So DOPE!!!” when he saw the #23 gift. That brings the exclamations count up to ten. Who got next?
How about Snoop? Snoop Dogg just gets to business, ready for the season to start. “Let’s go,” he writes. Adding four fire emoticons 🔥🔥🔥🔥 and a biceps flex — it’s an emoji, btw, that looks as much like James’s arm 💪🏾 as the NBA logo looks like Jerry West…that is, a lot. James may return to the #6 he wore while winning two titles in Miami.
In other news, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George will be sharing the Staples Center with James and Davis. LA is hoppin’ with hoops all of a sudden.
