Reg season don't mean anything though so the 1-5 is irrelevant.
And LeBron maybe never said he feared anyone in those exact words but he did say something similar about the warriors band he all but said that about kawhi with his body language the time he was on the line and kawhi checked in. And that's against a guy who he was actually going up against. Mj didn't fear Hakeem himself. He just knew his centers had no chance against him and it would be a tough matchup for the bulls as a team.
What Bron did on the foul line was way worse tbh but neither is that big of a deal really.
