LeBron James will still be nursing the bruising his ego took after falling 132-98 at home to the Golden State Warriors yesterday.

But the Cleveland Cavaliers legend is using a Conor McGregor sound bite to get him through this tough time.

James, who is one of the greatest NBA players of all time, took to Instagram on Wednesday where he posted a picture of some wise words spoken by McGregor in a recent documentary.

The UFC featherweight champion has spoken at length about his belief that there is no such thing as God-given talent and that all success stems from hard work and an obsession with one’s craft.

And LeBron James clearly shares that sentiment.
