Michael B. Jordan gets name chanted by LeBron James before Lakers play rival Clippers on Christmas

Michael B. Jordan was on the receiving end of a chant by LeBron James on Wednesday before his Los Angeles Lakers took on their intracity rivals the Clippers.

The 32-year-old actor during a pre-game appearance on The Jump was sitting with host Rachel Nichols, 46, along with former players Scottie Pippen and Paul Perkins.

LeBron, 34, walked behind them during warm-ups and called out, ‘Michael B. Jordaaaaaan!’

Michael in a grey hoodie laughed as LeBron passed him.

He was asked by Rachel about screening his new movie Just Mercy for the Lakers at their practice facility. 

The Black Panther star said the players’ reaction to his portrayal of a lawyer trying to get an innocent black man off death row was ‘really powerful’.

‘I think a lot of them really took to the movie, …to the emotion behind it. They understand that it’s something that has been happening. The case took place 30 years ago, but it’s still relevant today with the justice system as bias as it is,’ Michael said.

He was put on the spot in a Jump Ball segment as he was asked to pick the better superstar duo between Clippers stars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George and Lakers stars LeBron and Anthony Davis.

He picked ‘LeBron and AD’.

‘I feel LeBron changed the game of basketball and AD is next in line for that. The fact that you got those two guys on the same team, their basketball IQ is incredible. Really looking forward to seeing what they do in the long run for the rest of LeBron’s career,’ Michael added.

He also predicted a Lakers victory in the NBA’s marquee Christmas game, but the Clippers won 111-106.

Just Mercy also starring Jamie Foxx, Rob Morgan, Tim Blake Nelson and Brie Larson premiered in September at the Toronto International Film Festival and was released Wednesday by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Michael while at the game caught up with comedian Kevin Hart, 40, who wore a festive red jacket with white trim while sitting courtside.
