LeBron James Doesn't Even Know His Own Local NHL Team: ''Who?''

When it comes to basketball there's arguably no one better in the game than the King himself, LeBron James.

LeBron James may be The King of basketball, but he seems to have forget he's not the only King in town. During his interview James would discuss Los Angeles and bringing a championship here:

«I would love to at some point down the road own an NBA franchise, (and) to be able to bring a winning franchise to a city,» James said. «Vegas is a really cool city, they're doing some great things in sports these days. Obviously you've seen what the Aces are doing, how you've got the Raiders there, you've got the Kings (sic) there, the hockey team."

James quickly followed that up, checking with reporters for clarification on the hockey team. When the press responded by correcting him that the local NHL team in Las Vegas was actually the Vegas Golden Knights, LeBron's one-word response was perhaps even more discouraging. Who?»

The future NBA Hall of Famer eventually jogged his memory enough to recall that the Kings were actually in Los Angeles, noting that there are «two Kings in L.A.»

James was oblivious to the fact that not only does Los Angeles have a hockey team called the "Kings" but seemed to be stunned realizing they play in the same building.

The Los Angeles Kings would also comment on James forgetting The Kings exists saying:

Some roommates forget to do the dishes.
Some roommates forget to take out the trash.
Others forget you live there too 🥲

This goes to show we still got a long way to go in some of our American markets if athletes in the same city don't even know the name of their local hockey team.
