LeBron has some high words of appreciation for the Blazers guard Anfernee Simons after he exploded for 22 points in the third quarter itself.
Anfernee Simons is a young prospect in the NBA and making noise with his plays. He balled out in a recent game against Denver and garnered attention from all over the internet.
From his last few appearances, he has not just won games for his team but also put the league on notice with his impressive performances.
Simons finished the game with 29 points and five assists, leading the Blazers to an easy 135-110 victory over the Nuggets.
LeBron James’ tweet on Anfernee Simons
The 23-year-old Blazers’ gun performed well in the last game against the Nuggets and put his name to notice. Lakers superstar LeBron James appreciated his game with an encouraging tweet.
LeBron took to Twitter with, “Anfernee Simmons is on 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥”. While King James misspelled the Portland star’s name in the tweet, he posted a reply to the tweet and added, “*Simons. My bad bruh! Anyways you are 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥”
The Ohio native is an idol to many players playing in the league. For a fact, Anfernee Simons was just 3 years old when LeBron was drafted into the league back in 2003.
There is no surprise that LeBron encourages young players in the league with his words and his actions on the court and off the court. Luka Doncic and Ja Morant also expressed their gratitude towards James and got appreciation from him when they were new to the league.
Anfernee Simons and Blazers in this season
Trailblazers are off to a stunning 4-0 start and Simons has to do something with it. He is a great weapon offensively and with him in the form alongside Dame, the Blazers could become one of the NBA’s more underappreciated threats as the season progresses.
Portland has won against strong teams in the western conference. When it comes to strong teams, the Suns and Nuggets are two names that they have beaten already other than the Lakers.
In the game against the Nuggets, the Portland guard erupted for 22 points in the third quarter after 50% shooting and sloppy seven points in the first half. He was not missing from behind the arc and went for 6 out of 6 from three.
