The Cavaliers released their last Road Trippin’ with R.J. and Channing podcast of the season late on Thursday night, and it did not disappoint. LeBron James even dropped by as a guest.
James comes in around halfway through. You can tell because all of a sudden everyone goes, “Ooohhhh, look at that hat.” One of the last comments James made was the most hilarious. It came after the host, Allie Clifton, asked if Channing Frye has scored on James in the post in practice, since Frye apparently once told her he has.
“Channing has never scored on me in his career. There’s only three people in this world that can score on me in the post: Shaquille O’Neal in his prime and … Who was it? Oh, it’s two, and Jesus Christ.”
When James said that, he and everyone else was laughing. It seemed like he’d made that bold claim as a joke before, so guys, calm down, he’s not being serious. It’s a great line, though — put that on a T-shirt.
It got funnier when Frye asked, “What about Dalai Lama? He’s too skinny?”
James responded, “Nah. Jesus Christ and Shaquille O’Neal in his prime. It damn sure ain’t Channing Frye.”
Twitter had fun with it.
There were also these other great moments during James’ appearance on the podcast:
On his friendly banter with Draymond Green, James said that the Warriors had nothing to do with him shaving his head: “Of course not. If that was the case, I would’ve grown an afro.”
When they talked about the greatness of Dirk Nowitzki, Frye and Richard Jefferson said that when Nowtizki thinks you’re a trash player in games, he’ll call you a “burger.”
James commented on Green’s “You started the super team, bro” comment by explaining how the super team movement (or whatever you want to call it) started way before he joined the Heat and throwing another jab at Green: “But I just feel like it’s great that on the day you’re celebrating your championship, my likeness and my name is in your head. I love that.”
