On Saturday, LeBron James attended the UEFA Champions League final held in Paris, France. The game was between Liverpool FC and Real Madrid. As a partial owner of the Premier League club, James had the agony of seeing his team lose to the Spanish opponents from the stands.
Lejinx Strikes Again: Lebron James Suffers As Liverpool Loses UCL Final To Real Madrid!!
At the Stade de France, a man claiming to be King James was seen consuming wine while dressed in an expensive suit. Although the venue was to fault for the game being delayed by nearly 30 minutes due to poor organization, some fans on Twitter are blaming him for the delay since he came late.
Even still, many on NBA Twitter are labeling him “LeJinx.” It is not just because he urged Liverpool supporters not to start the game without him but also because the Reds lost while he was on the field. James was joined by two of his business partners, Maverick Carter and Paul Rivera, as they went to the meeting.
Liverpool Loses To Real Madrid
Recently, Lebron James has developed a reputation for being able to bring bad luck onto the teams or sportspeople whom he lauds on Twitter. It is just one more illustration of how the team that LBJ cheers for would most certainly do poorly against its rival.
Luka Doncic, on the other hand, expressed his joy at Real Madrid’s victory on Twitter. Doncic was a Real Madrid basketball team member and has been a fan of the soccer club during their whole championship run in the UEFA Champions League.
After defeating Liverpool by the score of 1-0, Real Madrid claimed its 14th UEFA Champions League title. The Reds enjoyed an outstanding season, but in the end, Real Madrid’s experience proved to be too much for them to overcome, as Madrid took home its first Champions League trophy since Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos departed the club.
Lejinx Makes a Comeback: Liverpool’s Loss To Real Madrid In The UCL Final Hurts Lebron James!
On the evening of the Champions League final, Liverpool and Real Madrid played in the Stade de France in Paris, and LeBron James was there to watch it.
One of the club’s owners was in attendance. As a partner in Fenway Sports Group (FSG), the firm that purchased Liverpool for $493 million in 2010, Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant owns two percent of the club.
In Paris, LeBron James had many reasons to root for the English squad, but Real Madrid again let him down, just as they had in the 2018 final in Kyiv, losing to the Spanish giants.
The Lakers forward traveled to Paris with his FSG partners Maverick Carter and Paul Rivera, who also control the Boston Red Sox of Major League Baseball. Kevin Love, a teammate from LeBron’s second stay in Cleveland, was also on board.
Due to his NBA schedule, the 37-year-old seldom attends Liverpool games and hasn’t been seen much at Anfield, but his team, the Lakers’ failure to reach the playoffs, allowed him to travel to the Champions League final.
The contrast between LeBron’s anguish and the delight of other NBA players is stark. Before, during, and after a game, Luka Doncic is the most enthusiastic Real Madrid supporter globally. An equally well-known fan of Real Madrid was also celebrating the team’s 14th European Cup success in Paris, with Joel Embiid posting a message on Instagram.
