LeBron James and the LA Lakers lost 134-130 to the Charlotte Hornets on a bizarre play in the closing seconds of the game. The four-time MVP lost his shoe while driving to the rim before falling down on the floor just as he passed to Dennis Schroder.
The German international missed the shot, which all but ended the Lakers’ chance of at least tying the game.
Basketball fans were quick to react in the way the Lakers lost this game:
“This might be the worst loss in the LeBron-era Lakers.
“Losing to an 8-win worst team in the league in the last game before Christmas Day is the point of no return”
The Charlotte Hornets have lost nine of their last 10 games before the win against the Lakers. They now hold a 9-24 record after pulling off a win against LeBron James’ Lakers.
