Four-time NBA champion and Los Angeles Lakers superstar forward, LeBron James responded to critics complaining that the veterans of the new LA Lakers team.
Los Angeles Lakers fans were very disappointed last year after being eliminated by Phoenix Suns, were hopeful for the trade period this year, and expected good players to be recruited into the team. However, some fans seem not very happy with the new team.
The Lakers’ new season will feature the likes of Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, and Russell Westbrook, and some think veterans won’t benefit the team now that more than half of the team is over 32.
However, LeBron seems quite annoyed by the criticism and defended the new Lakers team in a tweet. Taking to Twitter to report that their team is the best, James later deleted that tweet.
Here’s what LeBron James wrote:
“Keep talking about my squad, our personnel ages, the way they play, we’re past our time in this league, etc etc etc!! Do me one favor PLEASE!!!! And I mean PLEASE!!!! Keep that same narrative ENERGY when it’s begins! That’s all I ask. #ThankYou.”
