Man I feared that would be the case when I saw the play! F*#% man! Lil bro you'll be back stronger, quicker, faster and more athletic when you return. Just remain patient and confident throughout this entire process! Minor setback for major comeback. You know how to reach me and where to find me if needed. Love lil bro!! 🙏🏾💪🏾👑
James wasn't the only former MVP to offer words of encouragement as 2-time MVP and 3-time champion Stephen Curry weighed in on Twitter.
