LeBron James and the Lakers had a rough night on against the Raptors in 107-92 loss on Saturday.
Before the game was over, the ESPN cameras showed LeBron walking off the court early with nearly 5 seconds left on the clock.

This isn’t the first time LeBron has walked off early during a loss and it seems to have annoyed fans.

Despite walking off, LeBron did have high praise for the Raptors team while speaking to the media after the game.

“Great team. No if’s, and’s or but’s… well coached… Championship DNA,” James said per ESPN. “The media may not give them as much credit because Kawhi is gone but players know what type of team they are.”
