Somewhere in a dark room surrounded by empty bottles of Stolichnaya and Kleenex, LeBron James’ high school quarterback ruminates over all the errant throws he delivered two decades ago.

His phone buzzes incessantly with text messages from friends saying things like, “I’m sure he didn’t mean it” and “LOL Bron HOSED u bruh,” while trying to figure out how he’s going to tell his boss at Enterprise that he won’t be able to make it in today.

For those who didn’t witness the character assassination in front of millions watching Monday Night Football, here is LeBron James laying his destiny at the feet of his high school quarterback 20 years after

“If I would’ve had a better quarterback in high school, I might’ve continued to play football. I took way too many hits.”

Thankfully, Archie Manning appeared to urge his son to apologize to James’ high school quarterback for initiating the conversation that led to LeBron RKO’ing him on national television.

But, as we all know in the world of the internet, what’s done is done. People don’t forget.

First Take producer Mike Goldfarb revealed that LeBron’s high school quarterback, who I couldn’t identify at the moment, is gassed up over the shade on the ManningCast and eager to respond.

Goldfarb reportedly received this DM from the former QB’s college roommate.

I will keep you updated on any developments with this story after the QB is upgraded from the ICU.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
