The Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James got a presser at the NBA All-Star 2024 weekend when he talked about his future and the possibility of having a farewell tour and saying he isn't sure about it because he isn't good at accepting praise.

"I was asked this question a couple days ago," James said. "'Will you kind of take the farewell tour, or will you kind of just Tim Duncan it? I'm 50-50, I'm going to be honest, because there's times when I feel like I guess I owe it to my fans that have been along this journey with me for two decades plus, to be able to give them that moment where it's every city and whatever the case may be and they give you your flowers or whatever the case may be. That seems cool."

"But the other side of that, I've never been that great with accepting like praise. It's a weird feeling for me." Said LeBron. In this last quote, Andrew Bogut, who won an NBA title with the Golden State Warriors in 2015 and became a James teammate in Cleveland, seems to think that the Lakers star LeBron James' claim that he has never been great at accepting praise is humorous.

A fan wrote on Twitter "My Brother in Christ you literally have CHOSEN ONE tattoed on your chest lmao," on a post that had LeBron's quote, to what Bogut shared with three laughing-out-loud emojis.

LeBron and Bogus had some history in the playoffs

While Bogut may have found it hilarious that James said he doesn’t accept praise well, James arguably got the last laugh on the court against Bogut after the Cavaliers came out on top over the Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals.
