LeBron James’ cryptic Instagram post after Lakers loss to Nuggets

The Los Angeles Lakers were hoping to get themselves going and get their first win on Wednesday night against the Denver Nuggets, but they instead got themselves their fourth loss in as many games.

Yet again, they couldn’t consistently hit from 3-point range, and their overall offense looked plodding and methodical, a far cry from the “fast, physical and free” offense head coach Darvin Ham has been preaching this season.

LeBron James played a significant role in L.A.’s loss by shooting 8-of-21 from the field and committing eight turnovers. Afterward, he appeared to take responsibility for his lack of aggressiveness and pace.

He then posted a video of himself going in for a fast-break dunk, along with a cryptic caption about being taken for granted on his Instagram account.

Some speculated that the caption was a typical passive-aggressive shot by James at the Lakers organization for not getting him enough help, roster-wise.

It also could’ve been a message to the national media about forgetting that he’s still apparently one of the NBA’s best players, even in year 20 of his career.
