If there’s anyone in sports who can take someone else’s shining moment and make it about themselves, it’s Lebron James.
The Lakers star forward, who appeared maskless at the Super Bowl and remains silent about China’s use of slave labor to preserve his business deals with the oppressive communist country, took to Twitter after the game to suggest that the Dodgers, Lakers, and Rams hold a joint victory parade.
The Rams won the Super Bowl, so their need for a victory parade is obvious. However, with the Lakers five games under .500 and the Dodger’s failure to even make it to the World Series last year, much less win it, it’s unclear why they would be involved.
Nonetheless, LeBron invited himself to the Rams party.
We, Dodgers and Rams should all do a joint parade together!!!! With a live concert afterwards to end it!! City of Champions ??????. Congrats ? once again!!! ?????????

It didn’t take Twitter users long to blast James for this absurdity.
Lebron missing a Lakers game to attend the Superbowl parade for the rams that he invited himself to in order to celebrate a old Lakers championship would be amazing content https://t.co/bKtIV1Pbrc

Bro, you’re 5 games under .500 looking to celebrate a championship that happened 2 years ago.
Leave it to you to somehow make a SB win about yourself

Since winning a championship in “the Bubble” in 2020, things have gone downhill for LeBron and the Lakers. It must be hard to handle the emotional fall from grace. But still, man, have some dignity.
