Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James suffered an epic meltdown when a foul call didn’t go his way.
For James, this season has been the worst of times and the best of times and he is not handling it well.
James will soon break the NBA’s all-time point record.
The NBA star is now on track to wear the crown as the league’s most prolific scorer when he passes Kareen Abdul Jabbar.
Despite his personal success, however, basketball is a team game and James’s team stinks.
He is the one who picked the players so it all falls on him.
The Lakers keep losing and look like they will deal James a humiliating setback and miss the playoffs.
During the Lakers’ 125-121 loss to the Celtics, a close game James needed to win, a foul call went against him.
He responded by erupting like a spoiled child by throwing an epic temper tantrum.

James said about team management not making any trades to save his season:
“Y’all know what the f— should be happening. I don’t need to talk.”
James said earlier about the Green Bay Packers not trading for good players so quarterback Aaron Rodgers could make a Super Bowl run:
“When you’ve got a transcendent, franchise player like Aaron Rodgers…
“Why wouldn’t you surround that, when you’ve got the picks, to maximize what he can do?”
After a five-game losing streak, James said recently:
“I’m a winner and I want to win.
“I want to win and give myself a chance to win, and still compete for championships.
“Playing basketball at this level just to be playing basketball is not in my DNA.
“It’s not in my DNA anymore.
“We’ll see what happens and see how fresh my mind stays over the next couple years.”

According to Breitbart:
The moment came at the end of the game as James was driving for what would have been the game-winning shot. As he made his way to the hoop, the refs missed a blatant call as a Celtics player fouled James on the arm while driving to the basket.
James definitely had cause to be upset. However, what ensued was one of the most childish pouting sessions ever seen.
James is well-known for his theatrics on the court.
However, this time, he actually had a legitimate beef.
Not that there’s ever a legitimate reason to act like a two-year-old.
But, for once, the refs definitely robbed him.
