The Internet continues to show its merciless side. They trolled LeBron James when he was spotted on a freeway driving alone, but with a mask on.
With the Lakers’ offseason sorted in almost the perfect way, they will be looking forward to the next season. As the defending champions, the onus was on their front office to consolidate their position. James will be looking to become only the second player in NBA history with 5 Finals MVPs next year.
Given how well Rob Pelinka has done to keep LeBron in a winning position, the best player in the world understands how he needs to take care of himself.
Twitter roasts LeBron James for driving rare Porsche with a mask on
Given the context of the stakes which the Lakers star represents, it is but natural to expect him to take every precaution.
A car enthusiast named Alex was on the freeway when he saw a rare black Porsche 918 Spyder whizzing by. To his amazement, he spotted LeBron James driving in it and flashing signs to the people he was passing by.
They randomly saw LeBron driving on the highway 😂

Some of them were downright rude about it.
Raise the “hang loose” sign if you’re a tool who wears a mask in a convertible!!
