LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers entered the season opener against the Golden State Warriors hoping to take revenge for last season’s defeat. LeBron even had a solid game, as evidenced by his 31 points and 14 rebounds, according to the stats. Russell Westbrook and AD were equally credible. The role players, however, did nothing, allowing Golden State to triumph by 14 points.
In the third quarter, the Warriors led by a whopping 27 points at one point. LeBron felt it would be a good idea to approach Draymond Green, who was on the bench, in the midst of this massive blowout. Draymond walked outside to speak with Lebron and the two laughed out loud in the midst of a conversation.
The video of this was widely shared on social media and people trolled Draymond by saying that he was in love with LeBron. Andre Iguodala was making NSFW gestures while sitting on the bench, which the fans picked up on right away. It was yet another instance of how some people are getting dissatisfied with LeBron and Draymond’s Klutch Sports-inspired friendship.
Many fans commented on what happened on Twitter, and most thought it was extremely stupid. This is particularly true when you take into account the fact that LeBron should be more concentrated on being a leader than a comic to the other team.
After the opening, one thing is obvious. It’s going to be a difficult season for Lakers supporters. Stay tuned to Thirsty for the latest updates.
