DJ Paul has given his reaction to new Los Angeles Laker Mo Bamba nicknaming the teammate duo of LeBron James and Anthony Davis after Three 6 Mafia.

The Athletic‘s Jovan Buha spoke to Bamba following his recent trade to the Lakers, and the 24-year-old center said that having Davis and LBJ in the locker room “fast-tracks continuity and chemistry.”

“Fire!!!!” DJ Paul wrote on Instagram on Monday (February 13) while reacting to Mo Bamba’s nickname.

“Just missing the ‘Who Run It’ vibes,” fellow Memphis native and producer Drumma Boy commented on his post.

There was plenty of back-and-forth in DJ Paul’s comments section as some believed that AD and King James’ play this year didn’t warrant taking on the namesake of the Memphis legends.

“Shiiiiiiiiit! The real 3-6 wayyyyy better,” one fan wrote, while another added: “Thats too hard they gone have to come wit it if they gone be called that.”

There was even a time when LeBron’s rabid fan base was teased by other fans who named them Three 6 Mafia because of James’ 3-6 NBA Finals record prior to capturing his fourth title for the Lakers during the 2020 NBA bubble.

The newly acquired Mo Bamba served the final of his four-game suspension for an on-court altercation earlier this month and is expected to make his Laker debut on Wednesday night (February 15) against the New Orleans Pelicans.

“This is the longest 4 games ever son smh,” Bamba tweeted.

The Harlem native was traded to L.A. from the Orlando Magic for Patrick Beverley, a second round draft pick and cash considerations at last week’s trade deadline.

The Lakers have their work cut out of them to make the NBA playoffs as they’ve dropped to 13th in the Western Conference with a record of 26-32, 2.5 games behind the final play-in spot. It doesn’t help either that LeBron James is still out of action with an ailing foot injury.
