So what does LeBron James have to say after winning back to back NBA Championships and back to back NBA Finals MVP awards?“I ain’t got no worries,” James said, quoting Lil Wayne’s “No Worries” in front of a packed American Airlines Center Thursday (June 20) night during the trophy presentation.
Weezy, who has had his share of, ahem, problems, with ‘Bron’s Miami Heat team, was mums the word on the four-time league MVP throwing around his hip-hop quotable on the national stage, but Nicki Minaj, an apparent basketball fan judging by her in-game Twitter commentary, made sure James’ mention didn’t go without notice in the YMCMB camp.

“I AINT GOT NO WORRIES!!!! U betta QUOTE KING WAYNE LEBRON!!!!! @LilTunechi lmfaoooooo,” Nicki tweeted. “Lebron played like he wanted it so he got it. “Hope u cld take the heat like Lebron” Classic Bars from da kid…*sips myx*.”
In his 10th season out of Akron, Ohio, LeBron has grown introspective about his rapid ascension into NBA lore, throwing out sincere appreciation for evening being where he is, atop the NBA mountain, despite his poor upbringing.
“Listen, for me, I can’t worry about what everybody say about me,” James said. “I’m LeBron James from Akron, Ohio, from the inner city. I’m not even supposed to be here. That’s enough. Every night I walk into the locker room, I see a number 6 jersey with ’James’ on the back. I’m blessed. So what everybody’s saying about me off the court don’t matter.”
