During the opening minutes of the fourth quarter Friday night in Game 6 between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers, LeBron James got banged up when teammate Larry Nance Jr. fell into his leg.

Based on the way James reacted at first, it looked like the world’s best player might seriously be hurt. Then suddenly, not only was James not limping around, but he made a typical dominant move driving to the hoop.
Twitter roasted King James for what many considered a not-so-subtle acting job.
We just watched LeBron James repair his ACL on national TV in less than 30 seconds. Wtf.

LeBron more dramatic than a soccer player. Please.

@KingJames walking off the court looking like me after an all day 3 on 3 tourny at the YMCA. Blisters on both feet, bruises on forarms, busted lip, tweaked ankle 😂😂
