LeBron James Gets Roasted For Lakers Struggles After Calling For Rams/Lakers/Dodgers Victory Parade
With a 27-31 record, King James and the Lakers might not even make the playoffs.
The day after the Rams won the Lombardi Trophy, James tweeted, ” We, Dodgers and Rams should all do a joint parade together!!!! With a live concert afterwards to end it!! City of Champions. Congrats [Rams] once again!!!”
The Lakers and Dodgers won national NBA and MLB titles back in 2020, but were unable to celebrate with a parade due to the coronavirus pandemic.
A successful parade requires a pumped-up crowd, and some fans aren’t sold. The Dodgers and Lakers’ championships are two-year-old news, as the most recent, 2021 NBA and MLB champions are the Milwaukee Bucks and the Atlanta Braves.
The latest odds from MaximBet list the Lakers as the eighth (+2200) most likely to win the NBA championship, with the top three teams being the Phoenix Suns (+425), Brooklyn Nets (+500) and Milwaukee Bucks (+550). The odds come as James recently passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to score more points all-time in the regular season and playoffs than any other NBA player.
However, MaximBet’s preseason World Series 2022 Winner odds have the Dodgers up top at +600, followed by the Houston Astros at +850 and Toronto Blue Jays at +850.
With a 26-31 record, the Lakers might not even make the playoffs. In tweets rounded up by BroBible, fans shot down James’ parade proposal for the above reasons, along with many others.
