The NBA community hardly ever stops criticizing players and that is bigger when it comes to LeBron James. They couldn’t even wait 24 hours before trying to roast the Los Angeles Lakers star and his new NBA championship. LeBron just earned his 4th title, which cements his legacy as one of the greatest to ever do it. However, people always find a way to play down his accolades and comparing him to Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant to try to make a point.
Somebody uploaded a meme on Twitter of MJ and Kobe talking to LeBron, remembering his records in the Finals, as well as calling the 2020 NBA championship the “Mickey Mouse ‘chip.”

Twitter has no chill. However, to win a championship, you have to beat each one of your rivals and that’s what LeBron and his Lakers did. You can argue that this was an easy championship but out of all the teams that looked favorites to win the title before the season started, the Lakers were the only ones that lived up to the expectations and actually got the job done.
Sure, the journey turned out to be easier than expected for the King, but that’s not his fault. Several teams underperformed in the playoffs when they were expected to do a bigger noise than they actually did. You can say whatever you want but nobody can take that title from LeBron’s hands.
