LeBron James sends out a bold message out to all the people in the NBA community doubting the Lakers ahead of the 2021-22 NBA season
You know, we were thinking the Bulls were doing pretty well in free agency… until we saw LeBron James and the Lakers’ offseason.
Boy, oh, boy have that done incredibly. First, as fans know painfully enough about by now, the franchise brought Russell Westbrook to the fray. When it was first done, many, including us, questioned the fit, and the complete lack of spacing. And then, of course, they go out and sign multiple 3 and D players to complement the pieces.
It’s like the franchise is playing its own little joke on the league at this point. First, you let everyone talk about your flaws as a team. And then suddenly, out of nowhere, you not only fix those flaws, you build a damn house around them.
Still, some fans have decided to keep it going, and are now criticizing the team for being old, calling it a retirement home. And, it seems all that hate has not fallen on deaf ears.
LeBron James has heard what you said online, and he is on a mission to prove you wrong
Don’t worry, if you didn’t hate on the team, that heading doesn’t apply to you. For the others though, they may be in danger of eating their words.
The Lakers now genuinely have a super TEAM, not just a big three. There is a massive difference between the two.
Still, at the end of the day, no matter what you do, you’re going to have haters. And LeBron James is finally sick of his. Here is what he recently posted on Twitter.

This dudes obsession with creating an underdog narrative while simultaneously considering himself the goat is concerning

LeBron with all due respect, they’re not talking and saying you don’t still got it. they are saying you need a entire ALL-STAR roster to be able to compete against teams like the nets. SAD!

Now see, the King has never been the quiet kind, but he isn’t exactly someone that often makes bold takes on himself either.
There are very few things better in this world than the Lakers star in revenge mode. And frankly, with him finally a tad bit pissed off, we can’t wait to see how the Lakers do next season.
