With the Los Angeles Lakers out of the playoffs, LeBron James has been reduced to being an observer this postseason, and also one of the fiercest critics of some of the rules that occur during each playoff matchup.
James has been quite active on Twitter during the playoffs, expressing his opinion on teams, players, coaches and everything else, including the refereeing, something that was immediately harshly criticized by his millions of followers.
Tonight, he singled out one factor of the NBA game that he feels should be refereed more strictly, and he referred exclusively to an illegal screen.
LeBron James’ words against refereeing
“The illegal screening in our game is crazy!!” James wrote on Twitter. “Needs to be a point of emphasis.”
It’s really no secret how much influence LeBron has in the NBA. We’ll see if his suggestion tonight gains traction during the offseason, although it’s common knowledge that James has always been critical of refereeing.
The Lakers did not qualify for the NBA postseason, but that hasn’t stopped LeBron James from being very active on social media, and criticizing the rules he has played by on multiple occasions.
Luka Doncic, LeBron James’ favorite player
A day before going against the rules in the NBA, LeBron James spoke about his favorite player at the moment, and surprised everyone, as many go for Giannis Antetokoumpo, but the “King” did not care, and gave the Dallas Mavericks player, Luka Doncic as the basketball player who most takes the eye of James.
