As we all know, NBA playoffs are played in the Orlando Bubble. Last night, Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers faced off for the second game of the series, and Lakers with LeBron James put the series in a draw.
James was on the bench during Game 2 of the eventual win over the Portland Trail Blazers when he saw officials give the ball to the Los Angeles Lakers’ opponents on possession by mistake. The superstar nearly jumped on to the court to state his case, and Lakers got the ball thanks to Bron’s insane effort. LeBron was yelling to refs that reads: ‘it’s our ball.’
Of course, many memes were made for this behavior of LeBron on the Internet. Today, Lakers’ forward took to Instagram to create a new meme of his hilarious moment. He captioned:
“How you act when someone take your ball at the park when you with your suburban white friends COMPARED to when you’re with your friends from the hood! 🤣🤣🤣🤣”
This post of his divided some fans into two because of a few followers thoughts that it was racist.
An Instagram user nicknamed cdsmith9 commented:
“Lebron: ‘We need to end racism’ Also LeBron: *post racist Instagram*.”
Another user wrote:
“Why is it always about RACE… my son is a white 9-year-old that loves basketball and looks up to you maybe he needs to start looking up to someone else NBA. It’s disgusting.”
Another fan said:
“Racial discrimination much?”
