The king of basketball, King James himself, had some words of praise Thursday night for the Gonzaga men’s basketball team.
In reply to Twitter user @CuffsTheLegend, who wrote “Gonzaga gonna win it all,” Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James responded: “They tough!!! Love the way they play. Amazing pace on makes or misses, ball movement, some dogs and guys that just know how to play the game!”
The four-time NBA Finals MVP went further to compliment coach Mark Few.
“And of course they beyond well coached! He’s the truth!! The shiznit.”
