The Lakers star put out a message on Instagram, remembering a video shoot he once did while dancing to one of Young Dolph’s songs.
Clearly, Young Dolph looked up to LeBron James. The rapper named and dedicated an entire track to the Lakers star and also name-dropped him in a few others.
Young Dolph famously bet and lost $100,000 on LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers to win the NBA Finals back in 2017. King James then vowed that he’d win him the money back. And while it didn’t happen right away, he eventually came through as the rapper claimed he had bet $1 million on the Lakers to win the title in the 2019-20 season.
Young Dolph was just 36, the same age as LeBron James is now and just way too young. Our thoughts and prayers go out to him, his family, and friends.
