The Los Angeles Lakers’ were defeated by the Denver Nuggets 115-99 on Wednesday, in game that was full of storylines. It was a gigantic night for LeBron James as he passed Michael Jordan on the all-time scoring list jumping into into the fourth spot. Rajon Rondo however, had a little bit of a rough night.
Rondo was spotted sitting away from the team and it led to plenty of discussion on social media. He took to Instagram to talk about why he did that and how it was blown out of proportion:
Let me help y’all out. Since everyone wants to over analyze, gaslight, and over interpret situations, let me help y’all with your due diligence. The real story that everyone should be talking about right now is how my teammate, Lebron James, accomplished a huge milestone in last night’s game. What he has accomplished in this game shows where hard work, dedication, and perseverance can take you. It shows little kids that don’t come from privilege that success is attainable. It shows that no one can tell you how great you can be. Y’all are so busy analyzing what happened in the last 48 seconds of the game that y’all missed the opportunity to highlight, congratulate, and praise Lebron wholeheartedly on his accomplishment. Most of y’all have made a career out of discussing Lebron James, and y’all can’t pay the man some respect. Since y’all missed it, let me do it publicly. Congratulations Lebron on EVERYTHING. You deserve all the success and happiness that God and the Universe has to offer. Congratulations My Brother. Keep being great! 👊🏾👊🏾
