JAY-Z honours LeBron James before NBA All-Star Game.
The 2023 NBA All-Star Opener Game took place earlier tonight between Team LeBron and Team Giannis, and before the match, JAY-Z honoured the NBA top scorer LeBron James. The video message was played at the 19th All-Star game of James’ career, which happened in Salt Lake City, Utah.
“Being able to perform at a high level for a long period of time, that’s excellence,” Jay-Z began. “Long after you’re gone, people may look at your name and like, ‘That’s what greatness is. There’s not many you can compare LeBron to a 19-time All-Star, a remarkable feat.”
“The all-time leading scorer, all-time. I mean, what can you say? He’s been through many iterations of the game and in each era, he’s been the best. ‘The Chosen One’ and that’s it,” he added.
After honouring LeBron James, Hov shared some words for the league. The players, they’re super excited to play with one another,” he said. “The league is in a great place right now. Every team has major stars, amazing, amazing performers.”
The attitude. The swagger. It’s the #NBAAllStar Game.
