On Tuesday night, fans and enemies watched The Lakers get annihilated by the Phoenix Suns, who were about 30 points ahead for most of the game. It’s hard to maintain team spirit when you’re losing so badly, possibly to a degree it would be impossible to come back from, but the worst thing to happen for morale might have been LeBron James making a big exit.

Viewers were astounded to see James head up the tunnel to the locker room, clearly disgusted with the way his team was losing:

Basic sportsmanship demands sticking with your team through thick and thin, but I guess when you get to that level of success, you’re playing for yourself. Which is too bad, because the NBA doesn’t do one-on-ones.
