LeBron James got taken to the cleaners by Los Angeles Lakers fans after the NBA superstar showed off his latest shoes in the middle of the Lakers’ dire run of form.
The Los Angeles Lakers have had a disastrous start to life this season so far. The storied franchise failed to qualify for the Playoffs last season and got quite a few reinforcements this off-season in order to turn their fortunes around, however they got off to the worst start in their history after losing all of their first three Western Conference games this season.
After losing to the defending champions Golden State Warriors on Ring Night, the Lakers succumbed to two more consecutive losses to the Los Angeles Clippers and the Portland Trail Blazers and now boast the unenviable 0-3 record. The dire run of form has unsettled their loyal supporters, who have got onto the case of the players and management – leaving no exception.
The Lakers’ horrible start to the season has invited a massive fan outrage that has not even spared LeBron James. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar who is a four-time NBA champion and won the title with the Lakers in 2020 was also faced with the brunt of fan dissatisfaction after leading the Lakers to what has been their worst start to any NBA season in their storied history.
What did the fans have to say about LeBron James’ shoes?
The fans ripped into the NBA legend after he posted a promotional tweet about his latest shoes.
James faced the brunt of the angered Lakers following after he posted a promotional tweet about his latest shoes. In the 20th season of his legendary NBA career, LeBron posted two pictures of his latest shoes in association with Nike – asking fans to choose between the two for the next instalment in his famous LeBrons line. However, he certainly did not expect the responses that he would get.
The enraged Lakers following went in on the superstar, asking him to focus on the Lakers over anything else. While one fan said: “Focus on winning we abt to go 0-7”, other replies like “Bron I’m a huge fan but win a game please”, “Worried about the wrong thing y’all are 0-3” and “LeBron your team is in poverty” were prevalent in the comments section.
