LeBron James has had a very interesting 2021.
After a lackluster preseason, LeBron caught all the barbs from the media. His leadership as a super team-convening agent has been the fodder for talking heads and butt-hurt fans alike.
🤔Something is REAL 🐠 🐟 🎣 🐟🐠 going on

King Of Issues
With his injuries, mainly an abdominal strain, and new health concerns, James missed 12 of the Lakers’ 23 games this season.
In addition, he had a fake Malice in the Palace, in Detroit no less, got suspended and then caught COVID-19. In fact, he missed the L.A. Lakers’ win over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday.
James had to be listed on the NBA’s health and safety protocols and miss four games over ten days in the NBA’s COVID-19 protocol.
Whew! What a way to start a season.
“Obviously, it’s a huge loss,” Lakers head coach Frank Vogel said to the media on Tuesday before the game. “It’s disappointing. We just want the best for him right now.”
However, the Lakers beat the Kings 117-92 without the league superstar. James is expected to play tonight in Los Angeles against the Clippers.
However, now James is getting caught up in the court of public opinion yet again. Recently, he took to Twitter to reveal his innermost thoughts on the coronavirus, and people aren’t feeling it.
The Fish In The Sea
“Something is REAL (fishy) going on”
The “fishy” was emphasized using five fish emojis, signaling James’ distrust of the games he missed due to the current affairs with the new coronavirus world.
It is unknown if James was referring to his missing games or the coronavirus pandemic vaccine skepticism. James has stated publicly he received the vaccine despite being skeptical at first.
“Everyone has their own choice to do what they feel is right for themselves and their family and things of that nature,” James said to reporters in September.
“I know that I was very skeptical about it all. But after doing my research and things of that nature, I felt like it was best suited for not only me but my family and my friends,” he said. “That’s why I decided to do it.”
However, the NBA announced that James had been cleared to return for the Lake show on Thursday. The announcement came one day before a game with the Los Angeles Clippers but not a moment too soon for the beleaguered James and Lakers nation.
“Following two negative PCR tests conducted more than 24 hours apart, Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James has cleared the NBA’s Health & Safety Protocols,” the league said in a statement.
“James was originally placed in the Protocols on Tuesday, November 30 after a series of tests delivered conflicting results, including an initial positive test that was collected on November 29. Additional testing confirmed that he is not a positive case.”
All The Kings Men
Additionally, according to reports, James tested had a negative COVID-19 result eight times since Saturday.
The Lakers have been disappointing this season, especially with the addition of Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony.

The team started the season a mediocre 12-11, and they currently hold the sixth seed in the Western Conference. Six seeds No. 4-9 — have 11 or 12 wins.
Now that James has cleared protocols, his conspiracy theory will be put to the test in his return.
