LeBron James was not about to let anyone else have the spotlight all to themselves.
It did not end well for James.
And LeBron James made a fool out of himself with this idiotic reaction to the Super Bowl.
LeBron James became the latest figure of social media ridicule for his embarrassing reaction to the Los Angeles Rams 23-20 Super Bowl win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
James took to social media and tried to steal the Rams’ shine by proposing a joint parade in L.A. for the Rams, Dodgers, and Lakers.
The Dodgers did just win the 2021 World Series this past fall.
And the Rams are the Super Bowl champs.
But James’ Lakers are five games under .500 and won their title two years ago in the 2020 season where the league paused for five months and finished the season in the bubble due to COVID.
Teams in ninth place don’t get victory parades.
In Little League, last place teams that finish under .500 get a participation trophy.
Social media users mocked James for trying to throw himself a parade for a championship that is two years old while his current team stinks.
Lebron missing a Lakers game to attend the Superbowl parade for the rams that he invited himself to in order to celebrate a old Lakers championship would be amazing content https://t.co/bKtIV1Pbrc

The ninth-place Lakers would only make the playoffs this year because of the NBA’s decision before the 2020-2021 season to expand the playoffs to ten teams, where the bottom four finishers compete in a play-in tournament for the final two spots in the first round.
Last year, the Lakers ended up in the play-in round and advanced to play the Phoenix Suns.
Phoenix defeated Los Angeles in six games, sending James home in the opening round of the playoffs for the first time in his career.
For that “achievement,” LeBron James now wants the city of Los Angeles to throw him a celebratory parade.
