Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James had an incredible game against the Indiana Pacers on Nov. 24.

James, without Anthony Davis in the lineup, exploded for 39 points in 43 minutes after the game went into overtime. The Lakers won, 124-116, but it wouldn’t have been possible if James did not hit dagger after dagger.

LeBron, who was playing center at the time, hit several long 3-pointers over the likes of Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner. After a clutch shot late in regulation and one in overtime, James celebrated by doing Sam Cassell’s infamous move and his own iconic “The Silencer.”

The NBA fined James for the celebration, and recently, Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar blasted LeBron for his celebrations, via his YouTube channel:

“For me, winning is enough. Why do you need to do a stupid, childish dance and disrespect the other team on the court? It doesn’t make sense. GOATs don’t dance.”
