Tony La Russa on the Albert Pujols reunion: ‘Swooned for him’
The people behind the Los Angeles Lakers’ social media accounts are getting some attention after they appeared to avoid including LeBron James in some graphic images.
LeBron James is known for many things. He’s won a lot of games (typically), is stupidly talented, has switched teams a few times, seemingly defies Father Time, and is possibly the greatest player the NBA has ever seen. James has a remarkable legacy that is almost unparalleled.
So it might not come as a surprise to learn that James isn’t usually associated with losing (except this year and a few other occasions, that is). Normally, James wins much more often than he loses, but when he loses, it tends to attract attention.
Interestingly, it seems that the people who run the official Los Angeles Lakers social media accounts are not interested in associating James with the losses. In fact, one stellar NBA fan discovered how the Lakers tend to never include James in post-game graphics after a loss. In fact, he was included in the postgame graphics after winning.
Kenny Beecham, an NBA fan mentioned, shares the full process here.
Los Angeles Lakers keep LeBron James from losing graphics after the game
That’s some seriously impressive investigative journalism. Shout out to Beecham for doing all the digging and discovering that.
While it doesn’t seem like this is just what the Lakers are going to do, there are other NBA franchises that will put their stars in post-game graphics after losses. Some of the best players in the NBA were included.
But hey, for whatever reason, the Lakers’ social media managers are making the editorial decision not to put James in situations like these.
