LeBron James Dubbed 'Actor Of The Year' By Fellow NBA Star

For Los Angeles Lakers fans, what LeBron James did against the Golden State Warriors can only be deemed as heroic.

But for the rest of the league, they're not so sure.

LeBron has now been dubbed 'actor of the year' by one of his NBA rivals after he was seemingly pocked in the eye by Draymond Green before making a miraculous recovery to sink a game-winning three-pointer.

With just two minutes remaining in a stalemate game, LeBron drove towards the basket to score but copped an accidental finger to the eye from Warriors enforcer Drayond Green.

Four-time NBA champ appeared to make the most of it, lying motionless on the court for several minutes before receiving eye drops from the Lakers medical staff.

Once back on the court, LeBron appeared to instantly shrug off the injury and effortlessly sunk a three-pointer to win the game just a matter of minutes later.

As you can probably imagine, this sent basketball fans into meltdown.

Speaking after the game, LeBron said: "After the Draymond finger to the eye, I was literally sitting three rims out there. So, I just shot to the middle one."

But one man who wasn't entirely convinced by LeBron's eye issue was CJ McCollum, the Portland Trailblazers star simply tweeting: "Actor of the year".

Basketball fans also chimed in, spitting out some hilariously-creative memes on social media to reflect how they felt about the situation.

Can't wait to see "Eye Patch LeBron" guide the Lakers on a magical playoff run in search of back-to-back rings.
