The Internet stays with some joke-jokes. Social media has erupted over former NBA champion JR Smith returning to the league to go on another championship run with LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers.
JR x LeBron
On Wednesday, social media didn’t hold back on poking fun of Smith’s past antics possibly returning with King James on the path to a championship. Memes went wild joking about JR giving LeBron some of those unforgettable cringe moments.
Smith is currently onboard to help the Lakers finish out the season and go on a championship run atop the Western Conference. The contract is expected to just be for the current restart season.

Wait, There’s More
Recently, diehard Lakers fan Game said he didn’t feel the NBA should come back this season. The California native said players and the league should cancel its restart and focus on protesting police brutality.
“Hood morning (no typo)….. To be honest, I miss sports & the everyday normalities of the way we lived prior to the pandemic & the situation at hand. But I have to stand in agreement with my brother @stak5. Anything that is or will be a distraction to the movement & or the mission of justice for all the senseless acts of violence against black people in this country as well as the countless un-just murders of our people, should be put on hold until we as a people have truly prevailed in this fight. #BlackLivesMatter” -Game’s Instagram
