LeBron James has a lot going on in his life these days.

The NBA superstar just returned from injury and has four games left in the regular season to ensure the Lakers don’t miss the playoffs for the second consecutive season.

Then there’s the matter of his son, Bronny, who is a senior in high school and perhaps the most coveted prospect remaining in the 2023 class.

LeBron has previously spoken about how badly he wants to play on the same court as Bronny in the NBA, either with or against him.

“I need to be on the floor with my boy, I got to be on the floor with Bronny,” James said, before adding a quick addendum to the plan.

“Either in the same uniform or a matchup against him,” he said. “. . . But I would love to do the whole Ken Griffey Sr. and Jr. thing. That would be ideal for sure.” – via Sports Illustrated

So yeah, it’s safe to say that he has a lot of things going on his life at the moment.

But James is used to it, and he’s a man who understands priorities. So at a time like this, he’s focusing on the most important things, like his Twitter blue check.

James sent out a tweet on Friday that read “Welp guess my blue ✔️ will be gone soon cause if you know me I ain’t paying the 5. 🤷🏾‍♂️”

The tweet refers to Twitter’s plan to eliminate all legacy verified accounts beginning on April 1. Though it appears James doesn’t yet realize that the cost for Twitter Blue is now $8, rather than the initially proposed $5.

Honestly, credit to James for taking a stand. Lord knows he wouldn’t know the $8 a month was missing. After all, he reached billionaire status just last year.

But that doesn’t mean he has to just along with Elon Musk’s nonsense. Just, uh, please don’t change the @KingJames handle and confuse us all.
