Lakers’ LeBron James reacts to Odell Beckham Jr.’s trade to Browns
It’s a big night for Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James. Not only did they snap a five-game losing streak, but his home team — the Cleveland Browns — acquired star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. via trade.
In an unexpected blockbuster move, the New York Giants sent Beckham Jr. to the Browns for a pair of draft picks and safety Jabrill Peppers. James found out about the news after their 123-107 victory over the Chicago Bulls. He was pumped about the trade and quickly flocked to Instagram:
The 26-year-old responded to James’ post. Peep the screenshot below where Beckham shared his intent on “holding the crib down” for James.
The NFL world is erupting right now. Just like James, the city of Cleveland is more than pumped about the deal. Given Beckham’s stature, there’s a great possibility that he’ll drag the Browns out of the rut. It’s been almost two decades since the team made it to the playoffs. And who could forget their winless season in 2016?
James’ post and reaction is a clear sign that his heart resides in Cleveland. His tenure in Miami and now in Los Angeles are just career moves. He simply wants to win as many titles as he can. But at the end of the day, he’s that kid from Akron, Ohio.
