On Sunday night, the New Orleans Pelicans defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 123-95 for a decisive victory, and Lakers fans were not having it with star forward LeBron James. 

After the Pelicans led in the third quarter 44-25, a King James’ turnover drew an unpleasant reaction from fans. In addition, in the first three quarters, James and point guard Russell Westbrook each had seven turnovers.

Lakers fans were extremely disappointed by how their team performed in the aftermath of the game.  

Fans think that Frank Vogel’s team has yet to improve since Westbrook arrived. Reportedly, the 33-year-old is still struggling to find his rhythm since the start of this season.

Meanwhile, LeBron is not getting any younger and fans are worried about how much longer he can carry the team.

Speaking to the Athletic last week, James noted that he wanted to finish his career playing alongside Bronny, his son.

“My last year will be played with my son,” the four-time NBA champion said. “Wherever Bronny is at, there’s where I’ll be.”

James also has denounced rumors of him leaving the Lakers after the All-Star Weekend in Cleveland.

“This is a franchise I see myself being with. I’m here. I’m here,” James told reporters. “I see myself being with the purple and gold as long as I can play.”

Fans’ disappointment is justified, as the Lakers’ poor performance this season means that the franchise is at risk of missing out on the NBA Playoffs.

In ninth place in the Western Conference, below their rival, the LA Clippers, the Lakers have some work to do after losing nine of their last 12 games.
