There are a few players in the NBA who almost never see their shot blocked. Cleveland Cavaliers superstar forward LeBron James is one of them.

However, James was the victim of a rejection in Tuesday night’s game against the Denver Nuggets when Jusuf Nurkic swatted his shot at the rim as a help defender. Nurkic stared James down as the Nuggets transitioned up court, and LeBron was not pleased.

James got the last laugh, though, as he drove to the basket later in the quarter and scored, drawing a foul on Nurkic in the process. The King let him know about it, too.

James also made headlines after the game when a reporter asked him why he unfollowed the Cavs on Twitter. The question brought about a swift end to his media availability.
