LeBron James had an amazing reaction to Alex Caruso's dunk during Lakers-Warriors game.
1. It's been a rough season for LeBron James and the Lakers, but even during a 108-90 blowout against the Warriors on Thursday night, the King managed to entertain the masses from the bench.
Wearing a Nipsey Hussle shirt, James was left in complete disbelief after teammate Alex Caruso went airborne for a put-back dunk. TNT's Kevin Harlan also lost his mind on the call, making for one of the better highlight videos of the 2018-19 season. Watch:
LeBron looked like he was going to faint. Just a tremendous reaction. James also whipped Twitter into a frenzy during the game when he had a super-secret conversation with free-agent-to-be Kevin Durant.

“Omg Ryan isn’t that LeBron James? You should dress more like LeBron James. I saw he was at Beyoncé’s birthday party. Can you imagine what it’s like being at that birthday party. Ryan are you going to throw me a birthday party? All I want for my birthday is an engagement ring.” https://t.co/kpNrNRNFwS— 𝕁𝕠𝕖 𝕄𝕒𝕔 (@JoeMcGrath89) April 5, 2019
