LeBron James is watching ‘The Godfather’ again

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers-Championship Celebration Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

During the NBA Playoffs, LeBron James said that he watched The Godfather six times during the Cavs’ run and that he watched The Godfather Part II before dropping 41 points on the Warriors in Game 6 of the Finals. LeBron, as it happens, is a huge fan of the movie and likes that it’s about ‘family and so many other things’.

Today, LeBron is watching it again with his family on July 4th, which isn’t typically a day you watch movies about an Italian Mob family. But since today also happened to be the day Kevin Durant announced that he intends to sign with the Golden State Warriors, LeBron’s probably feeling a little motivated today.

Everything about this post is classic LeBron. He calls the movie ‘his daily ritual’. It has Michael Corleone side-eying those around him like LeBron is probably doing at the Warriors right now. And the scene he took a picture of is just as Michael unleashes violence against all of his enemies.

And in case you didn’t know, here’s how the movie ends:

There’s no connection here, nope.
