Odell Beckham Jr, a friend of LeBron James, sarcastically called the Lakers star ‘washed’ on an Instagram post yesterday.
LeBron did not take any part in the Lakers’ victory in the preseason opener against the Clippers. Nor did co-star Anthony Davis, for that matter. James is, however, doing all he can to be in peak condition by the start of next season. He added a ton of posts to his Instagram stories yesterday.

Odell Beckham Jr pays respects to LeBron James on Instagram post
James made an Instagram post yesterday, showing his intent to continue dominating the NBA even in year 18 of his career. The King is the defending champion for the Lakers. He became only the second person in NBA history to have 4 MVPs, 4 Finals MVPs and 4 championships to his name.

The post contained the usual hashtags from James, like ‘King me’, ‘The kid from Akron’. He also looked in pretty good shape, though not the same as he did in Miami.
Odell Beckham Jr chipped in with words of encouragement of his own. He commented “WASHHHHEDDDD” on the post, making a mockery of those who believed James had regressed.
If his performances in the NBA bubble playoffs were any indication, the King is not going to relinquish his crown as the best player in the world anytime soon. It would take monumental efforts from his competitors to still get to his level.
