Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum had a good time on Twitter Wednesday night while watching the Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors duke it out in what turned out to be the greatest play-in tournament game in the history of NBA play-in tournament. Of course, LeBron James was among the reasons why the contest was so thrilling to watch.

McCollum wouldn’t deny that the game was top quality and basically stole whatever little amount of attention the Stanley Cup Playoffs generated that night. But he also should have known better than take jabs at LeBron James.

McCollum was not contented at simply guffawing at LeBron’s theatrics against the Warriors, particularly when the four-time league MVP mightily tried to sell the foul on Draymond Green. Granted that the foul was legitimate, James also looked as though he was trying to be Daniel Day-Lewis while waiting for the officials to come up with a decision on whether to make the foul a flagrant or not.

LeBron James won’t mind those tweets by McCollum — at least for now. He’s heard everything during his legendary career. If Skip Bayless couldn’t force James to react, a seemingly harmless tweet from McCollum should be nothing for the Lakers’ superstar.

But here’s the thing. You really don’t want to give someone like LeBron James extra bulletin board material, especially if there’s a good chance that your team and his could meet in the playoffs. LeBron James is past his prime, but he could still single-handedly destroy any team that doesn’t have three or four superstars cornering him. The Toronto Raptors of DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry still have nightmares of what LeBron did to them in the past decade.

The Blazers have the Denver Nuggets in the first round, and if they pull off an upset by eliminating Nikola Jokic and company, they will get whichever between the Lakers and the Phoenix Suns will win in their own series.

Last season, the Blazers and the Lakers met in the playoffs down in the Orlando Bubble. Not a few thought that CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard could shock LA. Well, they did just that in Game 1, then it was all LeBron James and the Lakers the rest of the way.

CJ McCollum made fun of LeBron James on Twitter and that could haunt Portland soon.
