On Monday night, Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James made his return to Cleveland to play his former team, the Cavaliers. Prior to the game, James greeted and spoke with former teammate Kevin Love. But during the game, James did something that may not be very friendly.

LeBron James posterizes former teammate Kevin Love
After halftime ended, Love approached his teammate of four years on the court and put him in a headlock! No worries, it was all in good fun.
James spoke about the dunk after the game, saying that he hated that it had to be Love that he dunked on, and said he hopes he’s “still invited to the wedding.”
As for who held the bragging rights between the two, James did, and not just because of his vicious dunk. The Lakers pulled out the 131-120 victory in Cleveland to get them back in the win column.
James had a huge night, as he secured a triple-double in the win. He scored 38 points while shooting 17-for-29 from the field, grabbed 11 rebounds and recorded 12 assists. With this performance, James officially led the league in points per game with 30.0.
Love played 20 minutes off the bench, recording eight points, six rebounds and four assists.
You would have never realized that James and Love both won an NBA Championship together in 2016 after that dunk. But, it was all good between the former teammates.
