NBA Rookie's LeBron James Statement Goes Viral

Even though he was the league's youngest player last season, Memphis Grizzlies rookie GG Jackson wasted no time making an impression when given a legitimate shot.    

With so many players out with injuries last year, Memphis gave Jackson more playing time and eventually signed him to a multi-year deal.     

As a result of his unabashed performance, Jackson is also among the NBA's most assured young players    

After idolizing several of his opponents from a young age, Jackson made the most of his chance to play alongside and learn from the game's elite last season.    

As the regular season came to a close close, Jackson had a fantastic matchup with LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers,    

scoring 31 points but ultimately losing by a narrow margin.    

On Tuesday, while visiting a school in Memphis-Shelby County, Jackson allegedly heard a child say that LeBron James would put him in jail.     

The Memphis Commercial Appeal's Damichael Cole reports that Jackson allegedly told the child, "I gave him 31, bro."
