Fans Poke Fun At LeBron James As The Latter Greets Legendary Hollywood Actor At Lakers’ Game

During the LA Lakers’ recent game against Minnesota Timberwolves, LeBron James met legendary Hollywood actor Denzel Washington. However, fans got a moment to pull the Lakers’ ace leg on the same.

Times are tough for Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James. Him becoming the leading point scorer in NBA remains the only highlight of this season for the Lakers. The team has struggled right from the start of the season, and the hardships just never seem to end. As of now, the Lakers stand 11th on the Western Conference table with 30-34, having just 19 more games to make that playoff push.


Meanwhile, LeBron James dealt with a season-ending injury during the matchup against Dallas Mavericks. The Lakers trailed with 27 points in the first half. Moreover, the 38-year-old was so highly determined to make a comeback that he ended up losing control and twisted his right ankle. Apparently, the ankle injury worsened with time and forced LeBron to sit out for three weeks.

LeBron James has been advised by the doctor to rest his right foot for three weeks. Hence, the veteran arrived to attend the Lakers’ recent game against Minnesota Timberwolves in Crypto Arena, donning an artificial boot. As soon as he entered the stadium, he bumped into a Hollywood actor, Denzel Washington, who happens to be a loyal Lakers fan. Washington, a two-time Academy Award winner and one of the most decorated Hollywood actors of his generation, is also a noted basketball fan and has been spotted at numerous Lakers games over the years. He even attended LeBron’s historic game, wherein he became the NBA’s leading point scorer.

Furthermore, the duo was captured having a heartwarming chat. However, the fans found one another silly reason to poke fun at LeBron James. While some fans made fun of their race, whereas others decided to call names for LeBron. Some comments were distasteful and highly problematic. This again reflects the fact that despite achieving all the glory in the field of basketball, James remains one of the most hated athletes to ever exist. But it’s high time the fans draw a line.

LeBron Arrives To Cheers For Lakers In A Scooter

Meanwhile, LeBron James, unfazed by all the outside noise, decided to have some fun. The 6-foot 3-inch guy arrived at Crypto Arena to cheer for the Lakers against their matchup against the Timberwolves in a special ride. The veteran was seen arriving in a small scooter and ramming it straight to the staff member’s room entrance. Moreover, he hung his injured foot in the air and stormed in on a scooter.

The video is widely shared on social media, and the fans are loving LeBron’s childlike acrobats. James came in at half-time and watched the entire game. However, the Lakers ended up losing the must-win game despite Anthony Davis’ hard-fought 38 points performance. Once again, the purple and gold failed to close the game in the final minuted and lost the game with a scoreline of 102-110.
