Lakers star LeBron James’ NSFW message to Robert Covington during Game 5

Lakers, LeBron James, Robert Covington, Rockets

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is not letting the Houston Rockets slip for their antics early in Game 5 of their second-round showdown.

According to Ben Golliver of The Washington Post, LeBron directed some NSFW message to Robert Covington for “grabbing the whole game.”

“Y’all grabbing the whole f—-ing game. As soon as someone touches you, y’all got something to say. Y’all grabbing the whole game. Play ball,” LeBron reportedly said.

It’s pretty clear that LeBron James and the Lakers are serious in closing out the series and sending the Rockets packing. LA ended the first half of Saturday’s showdown with a 15-point lead, with LeBron even pulling off a highlight dunk that sent Jared Dudley’s son dancing.

LA currently leads the series 3-1, so it’s easy to understand why the Rockets are getting more physical in the must-win game for them. It also doesn’t help that they do not have a legitimate center, which makes it hard to keep up with the Lakers’ bigs without getting chippy or grabbing.

The Lakers, however, are still the favorites to win the contest and the series. After all, they dominated the Rockets in the past two meetings and won with double-digit leads.

Of course, Houston certainly won’t go down without a fight, and they’ll do anything to keep their championship hopes alive — even if that means getting highly physical and annoying LeBron.
