LeBron James is back in form and the Lakers are trying to pull themselves out of the murk. Although LeBron and the Los Angeles Lakers have struggled at times this season, James has remained upbeat about the team’s chances. After a recent big win, LeBron made sure to say “Hi” to his naysayers.
The playoffs are just a few weeks away, and the Lakers are almost certainly going to have to play in a play-in game at this point. The Los Angeles Lakers returned to winning ways last night, defeating the Toronto Raptors in front of Drake.
It was a thrilling overtime victory made possible by Russell Westbrook’s game-tying three-point shot at the buzzer, putting him back in the good graces of Lakers fans. After the game, LeBron was clearly ecstatic about the victory and, more importantly, he was ecstatic for Westbrook, who had Drake in shambles with his shot.
In fact, LeBron took to Instagram with a photo from the iconic moment, with the caption “MOOD!!!! Hi Haters.” The Lakers are now 30-40 on the season and sit ninth in the Western Conference standings. In any case, this could be a huge momentum swing for the team.
It remains to be seen whether the Lakers will even make the playoffs, but for the time being, they are attempting to establish momentum and chemistry. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
