Kevin Durant and LeBron James Bond and Flaunt Their Bromance on Social Media

Washington’s NFL Team was looking to change their original name. Though the team had several interesting ideas, they picked none publically. But the following week, they announced a new temporary name for the team on Twitter, the “Washington Football Team”. LeBron James, who could have been an NFL player himself, naturally reacted to the story.

“The decision to use the ‘Washington Football Team’ for this season allows the franchisee the ability to undertake an in-depth branding process to properly include player, alumni, fan, community, and sponsor input,the team said in a statement shared Thursday afternoon.

To date, we have been pleased to see so many people putting forward their vision of what the new name and design should be on their social media channels and we look forward to including their feedback as this process progresses.

NBA player LeBron James displayed his disapproval of the new name through humor on Twitter itself.

Is that real?? No way! Oh man they had a thorough intense long board meeting about that one huh,” James wrote.

This tweet was noticed by another NBA star, Kevin Durant, also a supporter of the franchise. The Brooklyn Nets player joined in to assert his displeasure and responded to the tweet with a GIF.

Further, James did not hold back from a response and lightened up the conversation with another humorous tweet. He said that he wanted to check up on Durant but joked about how he probably didn’t get time after the news broke.

To this, Durant replied that he was doing just fine and is eagerly looking forward to what’s about to come.

After years of speculation over its original name, the team has settled with “Washington Football Team,” pending the adoption of a new name, league sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The statement also said, “In light of recent events around our country and feedback from our community, the Washington Redskins are announcing the team will undergo a thorough review of the team’s name. This review formalizes the initial discussions the team has been having with the league in recent weeks.”
