Even The King is not safe.
It’s still unclear when Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James will return from his foot injury. One thing’s clear though: He’s not recuperating from a state-of-the-art hyperbaric chamber that would make Tony Stark jealous.
OR IS HE?
Insert thunder sound.
Nah, he’s not (is he?). But LBJ did tease the NBA world on Wednesday, implying that his return is imminent by posting on Instagram a graphic of him looking all cool in a futuristic-looking hyperbaric chamber. He captioned it with emojis of a crown and an hourglass. He also prefaced them with a bunch of dots because #drama.
While many liked The King’s post, his former teammate Channing Frye just had to roast him, saying “Wait, you need all this for a foot injury?”
Frye has always liked to kid around, and even a guy like LeBron isn’t safe. Clearly, they developed a close relationship during their time together with the Cleveland Cavaliers, winning a championship in 2016.
Other NBA players also chimed in on LeBron’s post, including his former teammates as well in JaVale McGee, Tristan Thompson, and Patrick Beverley. They were more, um, cordial.
Even Michael Jordan had to comment. No, not that guy who likes to stick his tongue out.
LeBron, who last played on February 27, is reportedly sidelined for two to three weeks. That’s a lot of time for Frye to lurk around The King’s Instagram.
