Jay Williams’ tweet on LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers appears to be going viral. The Lakers were not able to close out their series with the Miami Heat last night. They lost a hard fought game that ended up not going their way. But as long as they can stay focused, they should be able to get back on track on Sunday. This would be the first title for the Lakers in a very long time.
The Lakers have had a hard time so far this season. Back in January, they learned of the passing of Kobe Bryant, who was the king of LA in many ways. This shook the organization to its very core. But they were trying to bounce back and use it as motivation. LeBron talked about this recently.
“Of course, you think there’s going to be time for us to get together and I understand that there are regrets in life, but I definitely wish I had that moment with him,” James told Yahoo Sports. “I do remember when I decided to come here, he sent me a text right away and said, ‘Welcome, brother. Welcome to the family.’ That was a special moment because at the time, Laker faithful wasn’t [fully in on me]. A lot of people were saying, ‘Well, we might not want LeBron at this point in his career,’ and, ‘Is he right? Is he going to get us back [to the Finals]?’ So to hear from him and get his stamp of approval, it meant a lot. I don’t ever question myself, but when it’s coming from Kobe, it definitely meant a lot.”
Jay Williams Shares Controversial Tweet About LeBron James And It’s Going Viral
But now ESPN analyst Jay Williams has a controversial LeBron James tweet after the Los Angeles Lakers’ loss in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
The Lakers were beaten by the Heat, 111-108. Miami was led by Jimmy Butler, who once again had a 30 point triple double. LeBron and Anthony Davis both had huge games for Los Angeles.
The Lakers definitely had a chance to win. LeBron passed the ball to Danny Green for the final shot, which he missed. Jay Williams had some things to say about this.
“I trusted him, we trusted him and it just didn’t go and you live with that,” LeBron said on his decision.
Here is the tweet that went viral.
