The Cleveland Cavaliers take on the Utah Jazz Saturday night, but the day is more special than your average gameday because it is LeBron James’ 33rd birthday.
Following a shootaround in Salt Lake City ahead of the game, the team called on some rookies to flex their golden pipes.
Rookies Cedi Osman and Ante Zizic were the two players responsible for serenading “King James” with a rendition of “Happy Birthday.”

It will be the seventh time in his long career that James has played in his birthday.
Throughout games played on his birthday, James is averaging 33.5 points per game, the most of any player in NBA history to play a minimum of three games on their big day.
Tip-off between Cleveland and Utah is set for 8:00 p.m. ET.
