NBA fans are just beginning to notice LeBron James’ reaction to being followed on TV after another playoff loss
NBA fans have noted LeBron James’ unenthusiastic reaction to being watched on TV following Thursday’s playoff loss.
The Los Angeles Lakers star had a game to forget against the Denver Nuggets as they lost 108-103 in the Western Conference Finals, trailing 2-0.
After her loss, as James left the placeA TV cameraman tried to follow the 38-year-old off the field but was apparently stopped.
Now, as he was blocking the way, James stopped and stared straight at the camera, cocking his head in disapproval.
Eventually, the cameraman managed to step aside and let him head towards the changing rooms, but those few seconds on TV were enough to provoke numerous reactions on Twitter.
One such fan commented, “The cameraman is just TRYING to get something out of The King smh.”
Another said: “Lebron tried everything not to destroy this camera.”
One added: “LMAOOO new react meme landed”
While one suggested: “Lakers fans should like this. It means they will win the next game by double digits.”
A double-digit win would certainly please Lakers fans to distract from Thursday’s result and an unusually poor performance from James.
Over the course of 40 minutes, he failed to convert a single three-pointer in six attempts while posting 22 points, nine rebounds and ten assists.
The fourth quarter was a particularly disappointing affair for James and company as they were down 32-24 and LeBron missed three of the night’s hat-shots.
Unfortunately, this wasn’t the first time this year that the four-time NBA MVP has struggled in that area, with a three-point conversion rate of just 23.3 percent this postseason, including 10 straight misses in the last two games.
In response, Undisputed host on FS1 Skip Bayless replied: slammed James on TwitterHe said, “LeBron James: Triple threat to the Lakers.”
“He’s just not going to stop shooting and missing threes even when his playoff odds are down to almost 20%, a pathetic all-time result.”
With the series tipping heavily in Nikola Jokic’s towering nuggets, this Saturday it’s off to Los Angeles and the Crypto.com Arena, where James will surely be hoping to silence his doubters.
