The Lakers superstar hasn’t been shy about his desire to have Irving as a teammate once again. Not only did he sit down and express his disappointment, but he tweeted his reaction to the trade almost immediately.
Despite showing his heart on his sleeve, it sounds like James is adjusting his mindset back to focus on the teammates he does have. Regardless, Lakers fans seem a bit annoyed by the whole thing.
This man literally wasted their resources trading for Westbrook and now wants more resources wasted fixing it not even two years later. Lebron is like Daniel day Lewis at the end of “there will be blood”

Some fans are weirded out about LeBron James getting a sit-down interview for his reaction to a big trade.
Did they run to his house last night to interview him? This shit is weird.
