LeBron James Straight Up Dominated The Water Balloon Fight At His Son’s Birthday Party
LeBron James threw a 10th birthday party for his son Bryce Maximus James over the weekend, a party that involved a large water balloon fight. If you’ve ever seen that Saturday Night Live sketch of Peyton Manning playing football with kids then this will look somewhat familiar. If you haven’t seen that SNL sketch it’s an all-time classic, and I’ve included it at the bottom of this article.
Now, what you’re looking for in this clip is LeBron James cocking back and smashing a child with a water balloon at full speed. It happens at the beginning of the footage, but they replay the clip halfway through this video so if you miss it the first time just keep watching and you’ll see LeBron absolutely clowning on some kid at his son’s birthday party:
I only see one other person out there wearing a red shirt + red shorts. Part of me thinks that LeBron set up this game so it was him versus every child on the field, but it’s much more likely that the adults at this birthday party dressed in red so that in the case any of the kids needed help they knew where to go. I’ll choose to believe that LeBron used his son’s 10th birthday party to live out a lifelong fantasy of having a water balloon fight against a horde of inferior beings.
Let’s watch that again in GIF:
Seriously, it gets better every single time I watch….Now, who did it better? Peyton Manning (acting) on SNL or LeBron James actually throwing water balloons at children (at top speed) at his son’s 10th birthday party? You be the judge:
By the way, this is what an aerial view of the field look like where they held the water balloon fight:
Being able to do things like this for my kids that I always wish I had as a kid is why i work so extremely hard!! Seeing my youngest son Bryce at his 10th bday party yesterday with all his friends smiling, having a great time brings joy to my heart! You're 1 of a kind kid and I'm extremely proud to be your Father! Love you! #BryceMaximus #JamesGang👑 #striveforgreatness🚀
