LeBron James’ 1-word response to Lakers future speculation

A while ago, the King took to Twitter to post a cryptic message, providing no context whatsoever, leaving fans to interpret their own meanings. Many were divided between Bron leaving the Purple and Gold, while others felt a new superstar was arriving to the Lakers.

The message was posted by the superstar amidst a string of disappointing performances from the team which also led to the rise of distrust in the Lakers’ HC Darwin Ham. Soon after, many reports suggested that the Lakers were planning to move away from the LeBron James era and were preparing to trade away the player.
