This article will tell you the story about Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s one of the most savage moments

In 2018, LeBron James made a move to Los Angeles, the city of angels. What better team to do it with than the joint-most successful team in NBA history if he wanted to win an NBA title with a third club?

Although it was a historic decision, another football legend had just signed with a team in Los Angeles. None other than Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a man who, like James, defies ageing, was there.

In order to attempt and return their former winning sports clubs to the top of their respective leagues, where they believed they belonged, both athletes went to the city that year.

Zlatan greeted LeBron on Twitter, who wrote: “Now LA has a God and a King!”

On a few issues, such as LeBron’s public position on his own political views, the two previously hadn’t agreed. Zlatan disapproved of it and openly advised him to continue participating in sports.

LeBron disagreed, but other than this one incident, it appeared like these two sports titans got along reasonably well.

James gave Ibrahimovic one of his brand-new Lakers jerseys as a thank-you after seeing the former PSG striker’s tweet, but Ibrahimovic returned it with his own signature.

Many American supporters and pundits saw this as a sign of disrespect, but those who are familiar with Zlatan Ibrahimovic from his time playing football in Europe understand that this is simply another day in the life of the legendary player.

Considering that he once remarked, “Zlatan doesn’t do auditions,” when he first had a professional tryout from Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

Ibrahimovic routinely refers to himself as a God and a lion, among other absurd things, demonstrating his obvious sense of self-importance.

After leaving LA Galaxy in 2019, Ibrahimovic went back to Europe to play for AC Milan once more, winning the Scudetto in the 2021/22 season.

As the legends went their own ways in 2020, LeBron James went on to win the NBA championship for the Lakers.
