Rep. Devin Nunes (R) took to social media on Sunday to caution NBA star LeBron James that, by moving to Nunes’s home state of California, he’s about to pay the highest taxes of his career.

Nunes, a member of the House Ways and Means Committee and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, sarcastically said the former Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat player should have negotiated a higher salary with the Los Angeles Lakers so he could afford the tax hike.

“LOL! Prepare to pay the highest taxes you ever have in your career!!” he tweeted in response to the California Democratic Party’s tweet welcoming James to the state.

James, who on Sunday announced a $154 million contract with the Lakers, has in the past been a vocal supporter of Democratic candidates for public office.
