The LeBron James led Los Angeles Lakers once again fell short in a match-up they were easily supposed to win. The team has been consistently inconsistent with their veteran roster that the LeGM (LeBron James) hand-picked this offseason. The Lakers have been criticized a lot by fans as they lost against the Zion-less Pelicans. Russell Westbrook and LeBron James are back again in the headlines as the fans are upset for the performance they spectated. The King was also booed by the crowd.
Recently, the Los Angeles Lakers hosted the New Orleans Pelicans at Crypto.com Arena. The Zion-less Pelicans dominated the Lakers throughout out the game which was very unexpected. The final box score stands at 123-95 favoring the New Orleans Pelicans. A 28 points embarrassing loss for the star-padded roster of the Lakers. Currently, under the leadership of Bron, the team is ranked as the ninth seed in the western conference with the record of 27 wins and 33 losses at .450.
LeBron James in the game had 32 points, 3 assists and 6 rebounds another classic MVP calibre performance from his side. But again the supporting cast of Russell Westbrook and others fell short as King was helpless most of the time on the offensive as well as defensive end. The owner Jeanie Buss and even many fans now have given up on the team as they booed their leader for a play which ended up adding another turnover.
Twitter reacts to LeBron James getting booed at Crypto.com Arena
With five minutes and fifty-eight seconds remaining for the third quarter to end while being down by almost 20 points. Bron threw a pass to wide-open Talen Horton Tucker from the other corner near the baseline thinking he’ll read it and stretch out to get the ball. But unfortunately, Talen Horton Tucker didn’t stretch out and the play resulted in a turnover which further gave away some free points to the Pelicans. As soon as the ball was turned from LeBron the crowd at the home Arena started booing him down and soon he was out on the bench discussing the game with injured Anthony Davis.
Twitter has thousands of reactions to offer for the viral clip of James being disrespected at the home Arena. Fans criticizing LeBron have flooded the social media platforms. As they hate on seeing their team go down every other day many even request the owner to trade them all and start rebuilding as soon as possible. Many fans also know and understand that LeBron isn’t the right person to blame and criticize but still want him to perform better and more efficiently.
