Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James took to Instagram with his family on Thursday night for his first live feed. During the stream, James’ family members noted he needs to “do something about his laugh.” The King’s laugh isn’t quite as awkward as Kawhi Leonard’s, but it is a bit high-pitched at times.
While playing a hand of cards with his family, James burst out into laughter. A family member then spoke up, noting that dear ol’ dad needs to alter the way his laugh sounds:
“Yo, you gotta do something about that laugh,” A member of James’ family said during the stream.
After realizing what had been said, the Lakers star repeated the question with a confused look on his face:
“I gotta do something about my laugh?” James asked. “Aye, bro, don’t do me (like that). Chill out, bro.
“Kids hatin’ on me,” James said with a smile as he took a sip of wine.

Much has been said and written about Kawhi Leonard’s distinct laugh. He’s often the subject of jokes on social media, but he has taken it in stride. After leading the Toronto Raptors to their first chapionship in franchise history last season, however, Leonard had the last laugh.
James and the Lakers were playing well prior to the NBA’s decision to suspend the regular season due to the coronavirus pandemic. In fact, Los Angeles clinched its first playoff berth since 2013 with a recent win over the Milwaukee Bucks.
At this point, it’s not clear when the 2019-20 campaign will resume. Some have speculated that the season could be picked up in July or even August, though nothing has been confirmed.
LeBron and the Lakers would love to resume play to continue a quest for a championship.
