A portion of Lakers “fans,” if you want to call them that, aren’t thrilled with LeBron James.
Last night LeBron missed a pair of free throws in overtime that resulted in the Spurs knocking down a go-ahead bucket on the other end of the floor and ultimately winning the game, sending the Lakers to a third-straight loss to begin the season. I now believe I should have bet the under on total wins for a Los Angeles team that cannot defend.
If you stumbled into the deepest and darkest crevices of social media overnight or this morning, you probably came across the same outrageous stuff I did regarding LeBron, who apparently is not as good as Kobe Bryant and never will be.
Trade LeBron now when he still has market value, get us a superstar who is going to play hard and close out games. 3 straight games LeBron has let us down.

I agree. They must trade LeBron while he still has market value.
No Cap bro I just wish Lebron never came to LA his heart not here it’s on making movies and shit .. if I was the GM I’d trade this MF while I can his heart not here idc what nobody say

It’s true, he’s focused on making movies and shit, which explains why he only dropped 32, 8, and 14 last night.
DONT EVER SAY LEBRON IS BETTER THAN KOBE 💯

He’s better than Kobe.
More lunacy after the jump:
DO NOT EVER COMPARE LEBRON TO KOBE AGAIN. Period

You can’t trade Lonzo. He’s the best player on the team. You can trade LeBron before you can trade Lonzo.

You can’t trade Lonzo? Bruh.
This game ended the Kobe vs LeBron Debate FOREVER #Kobe🐐

No it didn’t.
They need to trade Lebron now if they are truly serious about competing for a championship. Get players more in line with the timeline of the young core.

Agreed. Trade LeBron. To the Sixers for a first round draft pick.
Trade Lebron and get Hart some help @lakers

A sentence I never thought I’d read.
Obviously, Kobe wouldn't have missed those two free throws to ice the game late in overtime.

Lakers needed one more guy tonight. And that guy is Kobe Bryant.
