James tried adding Russell Westbrook, and many older role players to his team; however, it didn’t go as expected. At the start of the season, the team received a lot of support, but by the end, it didn’t even make the playoffs.

As the fans express their disappointment with the team, especially with James, it appears that they are still upset about the team’s performance. As recently as Saturday, there was a lot of anger expressed on social media when James went to the UEFA Champions League final in Paris, France.
