The NBA just had their All-Star weekend and even though I'm not a basketball ball fan, I'm sure it wasn't anymore exciting than the NHL All-Star weekend.

One thing we did realize though was NBA legend LeBron James was almost in shock when he learned that not only does Los Angeles have a hockey team but he shares an Arena with them. During the weekend James would talk with the media after and was selling how great Los Angeles is. But forgot one thing:

«I would love to at some point down the road own an NBA franchise, (and) to be able to bring a winning franchise to a city,» James said. «Vegas is a really cool city, they're doing some great things in sports these days. Obviously you've seen what the Aces are doing, how you've got the Raiders there, you've got the Kings (sic) there, the hockey team."

James quickly followed that up, checking with reporters for clarification on the hockey team. When the press responded by correcting him that the local NHL team in Las Vegas was actually the Vegas Golden Knights, LeBron's one-word response was perhaps even more discouraging. Who?»


The future NBA Hall of Famer eventually jogged his memory enough to recall that the Kings were actually in Los Angeles, noting that there are «two Kings in L.A.»


It was actually hilarious how stunned James looked when he legit seemed to have no clue who the Los Angeles Kings were, as he plays for the LA Lakers.

The Los Angeles Kings would also comment on James forgetting The Kings exists saying:

Some roommates forget to do the dishes.
Some roommates forget to take out the trash.
Others forget you live there too 🥲
