Well, damn.

Apparently, Davis and his background singers, The Old-Ass Geezers, must’ve caught wind of Barkley’s comments. Because hours afterward, they responded with a dominant 117-102 victory over the Boston Celtics that included a combined 71 points from the holy trinity of Davis, James, and Westbrook.

“I just like the way we competed tonight on both sides of the floor,” King James said of the team’s fourth win in its last six games. “We had a lot of intensity, a lot of ball movement. Guys were attacking the rim. I think defensively, besides the first 14-point avalanche on [Celtics star Jayson] Tatum’s part, we locked in from that point forward.”

And for those wondering how The Unibrow responded to Barkley’s slanderous rant, he shot 7-of-13 from the floor and chipped in 17 points, 16 boards, and a pair of blocks.

Are the Lakers back on track? Are they ready to compete for a championship? I sure as hell hope not. And if Barkley calling out Anthony Davis is the key to unleashing the 10-year veteran’s dominant play, I’m gonna need Charles to shut that shit all the way up, post-haste.
