LeBron James is no rookie when it comes to playing charades on social media. The NBL star was back at it again on Saturday.
James took to Instagram where he left a cryptic message for his followers. This move comes just a day after the L.A. Lakers were thrashed by a short handed Timberwolves squad and hours after he found out Anthony Davis is set to be out for at least a month.
The message read, “Fake has become so acceptable that people get offended when you keep it real.” What exactly James is referring to ? Your guess is as good as ours. With more than 105 million followers, James certainly knows to how to pull attention.
The Lakers were finally getting on track to glory with a three-game win streak and the roster getting healthy again. The unexpected defeat at the hands of Timberwolves smashed their spirits and the blow was compounded with the news of Davis.
NBA pundit Bill Simmons joked on Twitter that the Lakers’ struggle to be at the top could lead James back to the Cavaliers. This raised speculations in the hearts of fans. Bill wrote on Twitter,
“We are like 5 days away from the first unsubstantiated ‘LeBron loves what he’s seeing from the young Cavaliers and might want to finish his career there’ story and I honestly can’t wait,”
In the past James has expressed his wish to finish his career wearing purple and gold. However, we all know plans can change with no warnings. In Aug. he shared his thoughts on the subject on the SmartLess podcast,
“I[Lebron] truly hope that I can finish my career with the Lakers, However many years that is, if it’s four, five, six, whatever, seven, I hope I can continue to play the game. I love being in L.A., my family loves being in L.A. Being with a historical franchise like the Lakers is something… It’s like me being in ‘Space Jam’ — I never thought it would be possible. You think about Kareem, and Magic, and Wilt, and Jerry West and Elgin Baylor, Kobe, Shaq and all of them, the whole list goes on.”
While it’s unclear what to make of James’ post on Instagram, we can only hope he isn’t thinking of parting ways with the L.A. Lakers. The Lakers currently stand at #7 on the table with their next game against Phoenix Suns.
