LeBron James’ season came to an end after he suffered yet another injury. For Lakers fans, the season can’t end soon enough. The team was a complete failure this season and failed to qualify for the NBA postseason.
LeBron has expressed his frustration throughout the year. Missing the teams’ final few games couldn’t have helped his psyche. A fan-shot video captured King James on the bench during Friday night’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The NBA legend was spotted kicking teammate Kent Bazemore out of his seat on the bench.
LeBron has a special cushion and spot on the team’s bench. When Bazemore sat in it, LeBron asked him to move. He then high-fived several teammates. Kent was not among them.
It appears LeBron James was joking around with Bazemore after the incident. There don’t appear to be any hard feelings. Bazemore will become a free agent after this season and is likely to leave the team, but it won’t have anything to do with LeBron.
LeBron’s special seat went viral several years ago. Bazemore was likely aware that the team’s leader had a special chair. It was likely just an honest mistake.
Kent Bazemore sitting in LeBron James’ chair is the least of the Lakers’ worries. A major offseason shakeup is expected for the team. After failing to live up to expectations, ownership is unlikely to let another season with LeBron slip away.
