I don’t buy the “i dIDnT noTicE…”because he was liking posts on the main lakers account and fan accounts. So if it wasn’t a problem when you were with the team, then it’s not a problem now.

its true..... Lakers under .500 but remain the main topic of sports debate..... the teams


Now that the Nets are back on top of the East, none of the other teams will get any discussion......
The Lakers being under .500 should be a main topic considering the off-season hype

"the media" and "social media" are not the same thing.

Social media is what y'all choose to post. The media would be the people/companies with credentials at post game conferences.
The media has social media pages as well and post all the time with the same influence as TV.

I mean most of these n*ggas in the league have no presence. Regardless of what you say the media has tried to replace Lebron as it’s leading narrative because they know they can’t use him forever. But guess what most of these n*ggas can’t hold onto the ball. KD kind of had it but his personality and social media sh*t weakens his image. Curry is the closest thing but the warriors been injured and are just now returning. Everybody else nobody gives a fu*k about like that. Even n*ggas who supposedly hate Lebron prefer to talk about Lebron/lakers more than anything else.
Nobody gives a fu*k about everybody else bcuz the media underrated everyone to hype up Lebron. They convinced the masses that Lebron is 10 levels above everyone, k*lling everyone else's value. They would magnify every small accomplishment by Lebron, while barely acknowledging everyone else's accomplishments. Harden won 3 scoring titles in a row. Had Lebron done that, they would still be talkin about it everyday on those ESPN shows. Harden and Westbrook have both led the league in ppg and apg. Had Lebron ever done that, ESPN would never shut about it.

They don't even highlight Lebrons weaknesses like they do everyone else. They got ppl thinkin that KD is just a scorer, ignoring his other abilities and ignoring how he was locking LeBron up in some of those the finals games. But when KD gets locked up by PJ Tucker for a game it's headlines news.

They are stuck with Lebron bcuz that's who they spent years d*ck riding, while dimming everyone else's light. Don't blame the fans. The fans have been manipulated. And don't blame the players. Lebron was ahead of them in team hoppin for rings.

Why are ya so surprised by this?

Lebron is the face of the league, he brings in viewers, so whatever team he is in it's going to get the Lebron rub all alongside the players that are with him...

Remember Cleveland? Ya expect cleveland to still get rub? Na Lebron is not there no more. This is basic marketing 101... you highlight the flagship product that brings in the most money AT ALL COSTS.
Lebron isn’t the biggest draw in the league (Steph Curry), lol why do y’all just say these things? in fact, Lebron has some of the worst viewed Finals series ever.

NBA should be thanking Steph Curry everyday

If they wanted to make him the "face" of the league they can slide right in position

He Pretty much covers you in SF...changed the game. Nothing to hate about the guy, stays out of trouble off court, a champion, family man, family roots in the NBA and is all about hoops.

LeBron has some of the lowest rated viewership in NBA history including the 2007 and 2020 NBA Bubblegum Finals.

Steph Curry brings in viewers actually. Steph Curry brought excitement to the NBA.

I disagree with this. Dude built his worth up. Regardless of what you think or how you value him by him being a championship contender/ winner he is unique right now. People want to say he lost more than he won. But there are legends at this game that ain’t won a ring. That right there is also why he got leverage as the media star because fans are the ones who brought up that bullsh*t argument. Instead of hurting Lebron it devalued a lot of n*ggas legacies and contributions to the game. It turned the league into a conversation about two to three people. Jordan, Kobe and Lebron. Jordan is the goat but in no way should his name still be prominent right now’s. Eras so different that you shouldn’t compare.

Anyways Im going off on a tangent the fact is ever since Jordan and the media run they did with him there is has been a nba face spot. After him was Kobe and then Lebron. The fact is all three showcase a type dominance and work ethic that few in the league is even in the conversation to be considered. Right now outside of Lebron you only got KD and Steph even then those two have yet to go on a run as long as Lebron. Harden and Westbrook definitely haven’t done it. Dude was at the finals most of the time for the last decade. It ain’t about showcasing his weakness because people have made millions of doing just that. He is just that dude. Fans love him and hate him he feeds the machine. Even without basketball n*gga makes waves. It’s not easy to replace him.

They just like him. He is extremely popular for certain people. They refuse to think that Lebron is still more popular but he is. Ironically the nba loves Steph they been tried to make him more of a face than Lebron. But sh*t like Klay being injured and the warriors losing for the last few years have slowed that down

I dont know about that, in fact I think the fact that they are on this win streak with all the Sarver sh*t happening in the background makes it even more impressive.

Basketball shoes as a whole don’t really sell that well anymore, the best selling basketball shoes are from a retired player, who outsells EVERY active player combined, by himself.

Anthony Davis, Jayson Tatum and Devin Booker rank higher in jersey sales, you think that proves those guys are bigger stars than Steph Curry?

Nice deflections though, I used the word “DRAW” for a reason, meaning viewership.

Steph is not ranked higher. n*ggas don’t count the bubble but the lakers have been more solid than the warriors for the last couple of years. This year has had a resurgence in his name because this is the first time in awhile the warriors seem solid. But last year was more KD year. The year before that despite covid was all Lebron. Steph as a brand is not more popular than Lebron. Popularity also includes n*ggas talking down and sh*tting on Lebron by the way. All that sh*t generates interest. n*ggas don’t realize talking about hating a person in this current era still expands that person brand.

If you go that route statistics say KD ,Giannis, Lebron, and then Steph at the start of this season in that order. Lebron was number one prior to the ankle injury he received last year.




There go your stats that you wanted lol
