LeBron James just keeps adding to his already almost mythological legacy — his GOAT legacy, according to some — every time he steps on the court. Tuesday night that was hitting a spinning overtime game-winner to lift the Lakers past the Jazz on the road.

LeBron doesn’t do a lot of postgame interviews in front of his locker anymore — while he likes that setting the media crush can be overwhelming and disruptive to the rest of the room — but he did it Tuesday after that shot. His teammates started making goat noises (or, maybe that should be GOAT noises) in the background. Via Jovan Buha of The Athletic.

D’Angelo Russell added this on Twitter.

LeBron is having an All-NBA campaign at age 38 and is at the heart of a resurgent Lakers team — along with a rejuvenated Anthony Davis — that is 14-6 since the All-Star Game with the third-best defense in the league over that stretch. In a West where the top-seed Nuggets are not striking fear in the hearts of anyone (they lost to Houston on Tuesday), the Lakers believe they have a chance to come out of the conference.

And with that, the goat noises will only get louder.
