LeBron James’ deleted tweet about Lakers is now painfully hilarious

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA – MARCH 27: LeBron James #6 of the Los Angeles Lakers reacts to a call during the fourth quarter of an NBA game against the New Orleans Pelicans at Smoothie King Center on March 27, 2022 in New Orleans, Louisiana. New Orleans Pelicans won the game 116 – 108.

However, LeBron James and co. were still soaking in all of the negative feedback and attempted to use that as motivation for the 2021-22 season. It is safe to say that the motivation did not work as the Lakers are currently out of the play-in and even if the purple and gold make the play-in, it is hard to be confident in the team winning two do-or-die games on the road. This year will go down as perhaps the worst in franchise history when we measure the actual results vs. the expectations. LeBron James certainly expected the Lakers to prove all the doubters wrong. James tweeted — and has since deleted — a bold claim about the Lakers before the season, which now in hindsight is hilarious. All the Lakers criticism that LeBron James tweeted about actually came true. The most ironic part of LeBron’s preseason tweet and how the 2021-22 season has panned out is the fact that mostly all of the things that he was trying to refute ended up being exactly true. Personnel ages (and past our prime):I mean, almost every veteran player that the Lakers brought in has played pretty poorly this season. We’ll give it to LeBron, he has been fantastic, but that is about it. Carmelo Anthony has been fine as a role player but is nothing special and he is the best veteran role player that the team has brought in. DeAndre Jordan and Rajon Rondo aren’t on the team anymore, Dwight Howard hardly plays and when he does he doesn’t play great, Avery Bradley is essentially out of the rotation, Kent Bazemore was quickly out of the rotation, Wayne Ellington hardly plays, Trevor Ariza was hurt and wasn’t good when he got healthy… you get the point. It isn’t a surprise that the lone good role player, Malik Monk, is the youngest guy the Lakers brought in. The way he plays (about Russell Westbrook):This is likely about the Russell Westbrook criticism from before the season and guess what, the criticism was right! Westbrook simply does not fit on this team and his contract is the reason why the depth is horrible on the roster. There is a reason why the Lakers tried trading Russell Westbrook at the deadline and why Klutch Sports seemed to be upset when the Lakers didn’t trade Westbrook and a pick for John Wall at the deadline.
