Mario Hezonja doesn’t back down from anyone, which NBA fans now know, from his play on the court this season.
Hezonja was seen dunking all over Giannis Antetokounmpo earlier in the year, which he then followed up by staring The Greek Freak down — a bold move that few others in the league would attempt.
He stepped into the spotlight again on Sunday, when he sealed the Knicks’ win over the Lakers by blocking LeBron James’ shot. James drove the lane, but Hezonja stayed right with him, then stuff the Lakers star’s shot attempt.
Not only that, he let James know about him afterward by staring him down.
James probably didn’t appreciate that gesture.
