LeBron James’ first season with the Los Angeles Lakers hasn’t exactly gone as expected. The Lakers weren’t expected to be a top seed in the Western Conference, but most thought the team would at least make the playoffs.
With LeBron on the floor, any NBA team should be one of the top eight teams in their respective conference. Instead, the Lakers have been plagued by injuries and now sit 8.5 games out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
On Sunday afternoon, the Lakers faced off against the New York Knicks. During a timeout in the action, the Lakers gathered as a team to talk things over.
Well, everyone except LeBron.
The King decided he didn’t need to be a part of the team and former NBA star Walt “Clyde” Frazier wasn’t happy about it.
Frazier called out LeBron for not being “part of the team” and said the King “doesn’t really care.”

At this point in the season, LeBron knows he’s not going to the playoffs. James will miss the playoffs for the first time in 14 years and it looks like he’s ready to be done with the season.
It’s not a good look for the King as he attempts to make the Lakers relevant again.
