At this point in the season, LeBron James and the Lakers are beyond desperate. The team is lagging horribly in the West at 13th place after winning just 5 of its last 5 games. In other words, if there was ever a counterpoint to what they wanted to do this season, they have certainly found it.
It is clear that the team needs reinforcements, and many thought Kyrie Irving would provide them before the current campaign. And they only got stronger once the former Nets star submitted a trade request.
But as fate would have it, Irving would soon team up with Luka Doncic as a Dallas Maverick.
The King was expected to be unhappy, but none anticipated that he would make his feelings known to the public.
But recently, he made the decision to express his feelings to the world in that precise manner.

However, it turned out that James was in the mood to shock every single NBA fan. Watch the man do this in the tweet below that contains the video footage.
“Definitely disappointing… We had an opportunity, it didn’t happen… we finish this season strong & try to get a bid into the postseason where I feel, when healthy, we can compete with anybody.”
