LeBron James recently shared a photo of a popular cartoon character last week via Instagram which was interpreted a bit differently by a whole variety of different people.
Some jumped to the conclusion that James’ posted the meme in response to Kyrie Irving’s 35-point performance against the Atlanta Hawks that Monday night. James published the post shortly after the Celtics’ took their ninth victory in a row.
The image, which originates from the children’s show, Arthur, is a meme intended to indicate internal feelings of frustration or anger. Given James’ caption, “Mood…,” some are speculating that the three-time NBA champion is getting fed up with his current team. The Cavaliers have been struggling to start the season, while the 12-2 Celtics sit atop the Eastern Conference. But of course it’s all chatter. James could very well not be upset about anything at all.
When LeBron was asked about the meme he was pretty brief.
“I like Arthur,” James told reporters.
He later posted another picture on Instagram of the meme joined with several photos of himself clenching his fists in victorious celebration.
After the Cavs incredibly narrow win over the Knicks on Monday, James’ fellow teammates hopped on the Arthur bandwagon and sent up a flurry of their own posts.
