I’m not even exaggerating when I say LeBron James is the worst thing to ever happen to the Lakers. I can’t believe there is that big of a group of people on the internet who actually admire and respect LeBron, and if you’re one of them you are going to get triggered by this blog. Fair warning.
Since LeBron has been on the Lakers, it has not been fun. Not a like, we lost to Miami on a last second miracle play and now we are only the 2 seed fun. It’s more of a laughing stock of the league, masochistic type of fun. I can’t help but laugh anymore because things are that bad. The Lakers are 29-31 and right now they aren’t even in the playoffs. I thought getting LeBron on your team was supposed to be a good thing? I hate LeBron but if he had come to LA and started winning and dominating right away, that would have put me in a tough position. But he just makes it so fuel the hate.
I went into this experience with very low expectations. I already know that LeBron doesn’t have what it takes to represent the purple and gold how it should be represented. LeBron has been telling us his intentions this whole time. He’s already accomplished everything he needs in life and he just wants to play a little bball, star in a few movies and go on Instagram all day. He can’t be bothered to help the Lakers, the best franchise in the history of basketball, make the playoffs and try to compete for a championship.
He’s been questioning his teammates’ commitment and focus almost every single night to the media. Instead of making up some generic answer or directly calling out specific people, LeBron just openly questions everyone else’s motivation while he also asks us to retweet his Space Jam poster. But this one finally pushed me over the edge.
LeBron was named “A&R” for 2 Chainz’ new album Rap Or Go To The League. I am still very unclear as to what that means but 2 Chainz recently released a video promoting the collab.

First of all, LeBron is extremely annoying in the video itself. He’s trying so hard to look like he knows what he’s doing. He literally does not spell 2 Chainz correctly.
For a split second I even thought he was just straight up lighting a blunt with 2 Chainz and posting it on Twitter so he looks cool. Maybe the rumors are true about his wine abuse and he just got so fucked up he was just smoking blunts on camera. That’s how little I trust in LeBron.
But the worst part of this entire video is that it opens by saying this really cool, not forced studio session happened on February 1st at 11:43pm…
The Lakers played the Golden State Warriors on February 2nd. LeBron didn’t play due to the most ridiculous condition of all time.
You might think LeBron, who was in the studio until god knows when the night before having to take a day off from his job, wouldn’t be able to find a way to blame everything on his teammates, but he certainly has a knack for it.
LeBron is talking to his teammates thru the media again… Lakers (+2500) currently have the 3rd highest odds in the Western Conference to win the NBA Championship…#NBA #LakeShow pic.twitter.com/iMjq85Mzti

Is this the most important thing in your life at this time LeBron? I really don’t think Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram actually do much in their lives outside of practicing and playing basketball. They haven’t got a life changing deal yet. So after they got some extra rest while LeBron was forced to play in the NBA All Star game despite being kind of tired, they have showed up. This was a full 2 minutes of just Brandon Ingram highlights from the Lakers loss to the Memphis Grizzlies tonight. Sure looks like a guy that’s focused on basketball.

Here is LeBron, who as a reminder is the one that is focused on the game of basketball even though he has already accomplished everything he wanted in life and has no motivation to win:

If LeBron is suppose to be the leader of this Laker team, he can’t play defense like this. Period.

At this point it is a disgrace to the Lakers uniform for LeBron to be wearing it. I’m embarrassed for Rihanna. How can LeBron do this to her? Just minutes after this horrible attempt at winning a professional basketball game, LeBron once again pushes all the blame to his teammates. What a guy.
Lakers’ LeBron James after loss to Grizzlies (via @SpectrumSN): “If you’re still allowing distractions to affect the way you play, this is the wrong franchise to be a part of and you should just come in and be like, ‘Listen, I can’t do this.’” pic.twitter.com/s3gHiuhODx

And what do you know? Just minutes after this clip of LeBron shitting on his teammates in a game where he gave minimal effort and a week after he announced an official release date for his movie, he took to Instagram to congratulate himself on another individual accomplishment.
What does that bullshit caption even mean anyways? J Cole isn’t talking about LeBron faking a groin injury and missing the playoffs when he’s talking about dark times. As sports fans we don’t care if you have a fun time out there, we care if you fucking win!
Point blank LeBron is not trying. I too was hustled, scammed, bamboozled, hood winked, lead astray!!! LeBron stans have been trying to force LeBron on me as a Lakers fan and they don’t have a leg to stand on anymore. Stop all of the “I can’t understand why anyone wouldn’t want LeBron on their team” “LeBron is the best basketball player in the world get back in the kitchen for thinking you’d rather trade him for Anthony Davis” I stand by all of those takes. I had to say it somewhere in here, but Kobe Bryant would never. LeBron James is the worst thing to happen to the Lakers in franchise history. Maybe minus that first plane crash when they played in Minneapolis.
