Lakers star LeBron James flexes four-time champ title amid early playoff exit
Let’s admit it. The playoffs just isn’t the same without LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers. Don’t get me wrong, though. The postseason has been nothing short of spectacular thus far. However, it just feels like there’s something missing.
After a truly disappointing first-round exit, LeBron and the Lakers were sent on an early summer vacation courtesy of the Phoenix Suns. Nevertheless, this hasn’t stopped The King from reminding everyone that he is a four-time NBA champ.
On Saturday, James retweeted a brief clip from his post-championship title win with the Cleveland Cavaliers back in 2016:
WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE! https://t.co/kJ8dbe0yJN

It’s been four years to the day since the Cavs famously took down the mighty Golden State Warriors in what is considered to be one of, if not the greatest comeback stories in the history of the NBA Finals. After going down 3-1 in the series against a Dubs side that won a record-breaking 73 games in the regular season, LeBron and his Cavs won an unprecedented three straight games in the Finals to upset the defending champs. That was indeed a great time to be alive — for LeBron, his teammates, and his fans, at least.
To be fair, LeBron James was simply taking a quick stroll down memory lane here. After all, it’s the five-year anniversary of that historic triumph. Then again, it’s hard not to think that this is also his not-so-subtle way of reminding everyone out there that he’s still The King — regardless of the fact that he’s on vacation right now.
