The NBA legend has had a wonderful season with an average of 28.9 points, 8 rebounds, and 6.3 assists – making him the best part of his team.
However, the rest of his team is still having a lot of issues and the Lakers are struggling to just make it into the postseason.
Because of this, things haven’t been easy for Lakers fans either.
They were expecting a squad that could go all the way to the Finals this year and that’s obviously not what they’re getting.
But James says that he feels their pain.
LeBron: "I ride or die with the Lakers faithful. If they boo, I'm with them … if they cheer, I'm with them."

James commented on his attitude towards the team and those cheering it on, saying, “I ride or die with the Lakers faithful. If they boo, I’m with them…if they cheer, I’m with them.”
If that’s the case, it means that James has been booing a lot lately.
Faithful Losing Faith
LA’s season has seen a lot of problems again and again, from injuries to surprise defeats that should have never happened.
But LA fans have probably never been as disappointed as they are right now.
The Lakers have lost every single game since returning from the All-Star break and they are getting outplayed in seemingly every way.
Lakers fans have little to no hope of the team making the Finals anymore – in fact, they aren’t even sure if they’ll make the playoffs.
The fans are losing patience too.
During several of the last games, Lakers fans have been heard booing the team – even at home.
That just goes to show that even the most devoted, die-hard followers have given up on the Lakers this year.
It’s now up to the team to change their minds.
