LeBron James was caught chirping Phoenix Suns youngster Cam Payne during the Los Angeles Lakers’ 10-point loss to the defending Western Conference champs.

Video posted to social media showed James on the bench resting while Payne was in the game. Payne had been trash-talking his Lakers opponents all night — and for good reason. Phoenix was up by as many as 32 points at one point, forced 16 Lakers turnovers and eventually dropped Los Angeles to 0-2.

While Rondo didn’t speak on the incident after the game, Davis and Howard insisted whatever was going on between them was over.
