LeBron James, never short on confidence, just congratulated himself for reaching 30,000 career NBA points before he actually reached the milestone.
A post on James’ Instagram account that included a photo of a young James in his high school uniform starts: “Wanna be one of the first to Congratulate you on this accomplishment/achievement tonight that you’ll reach!”
Twitter wasted no time in delivering a roast in brutal fashion.

LeBron really congratulated himself for an accomplishment that didn't even happen yet. In the words of the great @kendricklamar…BE HUMBLE, SIT DOWN.
