Lakers’ LeBron James reacts to hilarious Alex Caruso meme on Twitter
Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is loving every bit of this Alex Caruso-Austin Reaves meme that he saw going around on Twitter. After their preseason loss against the Sacramento Kings, the four-time MVP blew off some steam on social media and sprinkled a ton of laughing emojis after seeing a funny joke involving his former teammate Caruso and one of his rookies in Reaves.
The meme, which was posted by Wave TV’s Josiah Johnson, featured former president Barrack Obama putting on a medal to current president Joe Biden. Per Johnson, this is how he pictures Alex Caruso blessing the Lakers rookie with his ‘honorary to go plate’. James had no choice but to LOL on the bit:

Caruso, who signed a huge four-year deal with the Bulls this summer, made a name for himself as one of the scrappy key players in the Lakers roster over the past few seasons. He’s a crowd favorite and Laker Nation was definitely a bit sad with their gritty guard heading to the midwest to play for Chicago.
But, James and the rest of the franchise are excited to welcome rookie Austin Reaves with open arms as the 6-foot-5 winger hopes to fill in Caruso’s shoes as a key energy guy in head coach Frank Vogel’s lineup. Coming off an impressive stint with the Oklahoma Sooners, Reaves ended up being left out in the 2021 NBA Draft and the Lakers were more than happy to snag him from the waivers and eventually sign him to a two-way contract heading towards the ’21-22 NBA Season.
