Tristan Thompson Had the Funniest Reaction to LeBron James Saying 'I Didn't Go Bald Like Mike, But I'm Getting There'

The King finally addressed it!

Published May 26, 2017

LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers are headed back to the NBA Finals to face the Golden State Warriors for the third straight year.

And the same Thursday night that saw LeBron secure his seventh consecutive trip to the Finals also had King James surpassing Michael Jordan as the NBA's all-time playoff scoring leader.

James's 35 points in the Cavs' 135-102 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of their Eastern Conference Finals lifted him above the GOAT's 5,987 playoff points to become the league's new all-time postseason scoring leader.

"For my name to come up in the discussion with the greatest basketball player of all time, it's like, 'Wow,'" James said after the game, as reported by ESPN. "Like I said, I did pretty much everything that MJ did when I was a kid. I shot fadeaways before I should have. I wore a leg sleeve on my leg and folded it down so you saw the red part. I wore black and red shoes with white socks. I wore short shorts so you could see my undershorts underneath. I didn't go bald like Mike, but I'm getting there. But [my baldness] will be post-career, though. That's the only thing I didn't do. But other than that, I did everything Mike did." that last part back again.

Did King James finally acknowledge his receding hairline and balding? Why yes, he did!

And Tristan Thompson couldn't believe it. When LeBron commented "I didn't go bald like Mike, but I'm getting there," Thompson made the most priceless face behind him. And the internet loved every second of it, chiming in with these hilarious, no-chill reactions.
