LeBron James is one of the most popular NBA ballers on the planet, but he isn’t without his haters. King James recently addressed those naysayers who have doubts about how much he truly controls the game.
James uploaded a new story on his Instagram account that received a lot of attention. Along with an image of himself on the court, he included some facts in the form of text on the graphic.
From 2015-2017, LeBron went 177 straight regular season games without taking 30+ shots.
The next game he did, he scored 57 points on 34 FGA (67.6% FG).
The use of #WashedKing is in reference to Lakers teammate Anthony Davis. He used the term in 2019 after James experienced three straight triple-double performances in a row. That is how it’s done, but fans are obviously expecting that kind of ball from LeBron James in 2021 as well.
The Lakers are rebuilding and promise to come back next season with a new focus. Hopefully, a first-round NBA Playoffs knockout won’t be in the cards for them next time.
