Spurs’ Dejounte Murray reminds Lakers’ LeBron James that he has never lost to him

Dejounte-Murray-LeBron-James-Lakers-Spurs

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James has made great friendships with players handled his agent, Rich Paul, and one of the guys he built a tight bond with is San Antonio Spurs rising Star Dejounte Murray.

In a report by News4SanAntonio.com, Murray admitted that he idolized James ever since the latter came into the league in 2003. He also thanked the four-time MVP for being a ‘Big Brother that I can call on about whatever.’

Murray then reminded LeBron that he’s never lost to him yet in the NBA.

Of course, James thanked the incoming fourth-year forward for appreciating their friendship and just laughed at Murray’s remarks about being undefeated against him.

In Murray’s first two seasons in the league, his Spurs met LeBron four times when the King was still a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers. San Antonio won all those games.

Last season, the Spurs won the season series against the Lakers with a 3-1 record, and in that lone victory by the Purple and Gold, Murray didn’t play.

This season, the Spurs and the Lakers will meet three times and their first matchup will be on November 3 in San Antonio. James will look to break his losing streak to Murray with the help of All-Star forward Anthony Davis, who was traded to LA a couple of months ago.

The Lakers and the Spurs have built quite a rivalry in the past, and while the former hasn’t made the playoffs for six consecutive seasons, the latter has made it to the postseason 22 years in a row. LA will be looking to prove themselves to the rest of the league, and San Antonio will be one of their toughest opponents in the early goings of the upcoming season.
