LeBron James lead the Cavs to a huge 26 point defect comeback win over the Indiana Pacers today to take a 3-0 series lead in their First Round series.
With Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love on the bench late in the game, LeBron spurred on a huge run finishing with his highest ever Playoff triple-double score of 41 points, 13 rebounds and 12 assists.
After the game, LeBron was answered the question that we all wanted to know – his thoughts on Kendrick Lamar’s new album ‘DAMN’ which the rapper sent to LeBron to listen to before it was released to the public.

“That’s a great question, man,” LeBron said. “I haven’t stopped listening to it since he sent it to me before it came out.”
“The guy is an unbelievable talent. His wordplay in his lyrics is unbelievable, and it hit home for me at times because I was a kid who grew up in the inner city.
“His story of the notion of you either play basketball or sell drugs, that’s it, there’s no out. You become a statistic. As an African American kid growing up in the inner city, they don’t believe you can get out and become something.
“That’s why I’m able to relate to a lot of his lyrics and relate to a lot of his stories. He’s an unbelievable artist and an unbelievable person. I’m glad he’s able to put those words onto a track for all of us to be able to hear. For me, I definitely appreciate it.”
