LeBron James is facing some criticism for what he did at the end of tonight's Los Angeles Lakers game.

The Lakers fell to the Philadelphia 76ers, 143-120, at the Wells Fargo Center.

The game was over midway through the fourth quarter, as the Sixers expanded on their lead, wrapping the game up with minutes to go.

LeBron had seen enough before the game clock hit 0.0. The Lakers' star forward left the court with a little more than two seconds to go.

Unsurprisingly, James is facing some criticism for leaving before the game officially ended.

"LeBron walked off the bench to the locker room with 5 seconds left in the game tonight in Philly. While overall it's not a huge deal, LeBron continues to fuel the "bad teammate" narrative with his actions," one fan tweeted.

"I guess LeBron couldn't wait until the clock hit 0 to leave the court. I can't stand that man. He brought Cleveland a title and that's awesome. Just can't stand the teammate and diva he is," another fan added.

"Gotta love LeBron “zero class” James leaving the court before the final buzzer. Also gotta love putting up 143 on his team. Saying that the east is loading up cause they don’t have to go through him is a joke. We just destroyed your team," a Sixers fan wrote.

The Lakers fell to 28-28 on the season with tonight's loss to the Sixers.

Los Angeles is set to take on Atlanta on Tuesday.
