It’s no secret that Maverick Carter is LeBron James’, right-hand man. The two have been best friends for a while now and have started various business ventures together. One of those ventures is their media company Uninterrupted which is home to the successful HBO show, The Shop. Carter recently got the opportunity of a lifetime when he was given the stage to provide the commencement speech at USC. While many praised Carter for the honor, comedian Michael Rapaport decided to be a hater, tweeting “Ok GRADUATES, this year’s USC Commencement Speaker… LeBron James best friend. GTFOH”
Rapaport was immediately called out by Jimmy Spencer who is the Vice President of Athlete Relations & Content at Uninterrupted. In his tweet, he said “This the same Rapaport who’s been trying to work with us?” That’s when LeBron jumped in with a whole clip of laughing emojis, making it clear that Rapaport is coming across a little salty due to his lack of success when it comes to infiltrating LeBron’s company.
The comedian has been known as a hater for a while now so his Carter comments don’t come as much of a surprise. Although it’s incredibly ironic that he’s been trying to work with Maverick this whole time.
