LeBron James’ inaugural season with the Los Angeles Lakers has found plenty of lows. Somehow, things got even more embarrassing today.
The Lakers lost to the lowly Knicks, 124-123, at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
The game ended when James had his game-winning shot attempt blocked by Mario Hezonja.

It was a tough day all around for LeBron, who got called out during the game by Knicks’ analyst Clyde Frazier.
“This type of behavior, when you’re the face of the NBA, you should be more a part of your team,” Frazier said. “No matter what is going on. In public, you’ve got to be part of the team. In the locker room you’re not, but you have to exude that type of togetherness in public. And right now we see he doesn’t really care.”
