Have you bought into the latest craze that is ChatGPT? If not, this might be just the thing to convince you

In case you aren't up to speed, ChatGPT is an online chatbot that uses artificial intelligence to generate responses to user questions, prompts and more. It's kind of cool, but yes, scary, because it brings us one step closer to world robot domination. Yikes!

Here was the prompt: "Write a sonnet about LeBron James and the Lakers facing off in the playoffs versus Steph Curry and the Warriors."

This is what ChatGPT came up with

"As battle lines are drawn, the stage is set,
For Lakers and Warriors to collide,
Two titans of the game, with fire and sweat
Their wills and skills to be put to the test with pride

In James, the Lakers boast a champion's heart,
A leader who has tasted glory sweet,
His passion for the game a work of art,
His vision and his power hard to beat.

And yet, the Warriors have Curry, bright,
A shooter with magic touch and grace,
Whose dazzling moves can light up any night
And leave defenders searching for a trace.

This playoff clash will be a sight to see,
As both teams fight for their place in history."

I mean, wow. Hang it in the Louvre.

Despite being a robot who has never seen the magic of these two superstars on the same court, ChatGPT was kind of right on the nose. LeBron James continues to find ways to be competitive — both physically and mentally — despite his age. Steph Curry continues to lead his team with his presence both on and off the court.

Watch the aforementioned playoff clash Thursday, May 4 at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN.
