No one was more proud of Romeo Travis’ 50-point game than his best friend LeBron James.
Hours after Travis’ career-outing that saw him lift the Magnolia Hotshots to the Finals, James went to social media platform Instagram to extend his salutations for his childhood friend.
“Headed to the Finals on a 50-piece nugget!” James’ post read. “Congrats my brother Romeo Travis.
“Keep going Lucky Lefty!”
Travis’ performance was more impressive because his status was questionable heading into Game 4, as he nursed grade two hamstring injury.
“This is my career-high,” Travis said.
“It’s a very special day for me, I’ll never forget it.”
If Magnolia lost the game, the Hotshots were looking to tap Ben Mbala as replacement for him.
With the added rest, Romeo is hoping that he will be at a hundred-percent come Game 1 of the 2018 PBA Governors Cup Finals, with the Hotshots looking to end a four-year title drought.
Surely, James will be monitoring all the action from Los Angeles, California.
