Interesting moment at the Lakers vs. Clippers game ... when LeBron James' agent, Rich Paul, went to shake hands with ex-Cavs coach Ty Lue -- and Lue REJECTED HIM HARD!!!
Here's the quick backstory ... Lue was the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers from 2016 to 2018 ... and only lasted 6 games into the 2018 season after LeBron bolted for L.A.
Lue had tried like hell to keep LeBron in Cleveland, knowing his fate was likely tied to the superstar ... and when Bron left, it was obvious Lue's fate was sealed.
Lue eventually got a job as an assistant coach with the L.A. Clippers -- and his team opened against LeBron's Lakers on Tuesday.
Obviously, Rich Paul was in the stands ... and at one point, was dapping it up with Clippers star Paul George when Lue came over to break it up.
Paul extended his hand and tried to get some love from Lue ... but Lue left him hanging and then stared down Paul's hand like he couldn't believe he would have the balls to try.
Paul laughed as Lue walked away ... while Lue was still jaw-jackin' back at Paul.
So, was it friendly ballbusting ... or is there real beef??? Unclear but the video is hilarious.
Oh, and Lue got the last laugh on Tuesday ... the Clips beat the Lakers 112 to 102.
