It did not take a full day into the new year for LeBron James to get blasted for something he did. The Lakers superstar was dealt with some backlash for a tweet supporting quarterback Deshaun Watson during the Cleveland Browns’ game against the Washington Commanders.
Watson had three touchdown passes on Sunday, despite only completing nine passes all game long. The performance in the 24-10 win earned praise from the Los Angeles Lakers superstar.
Watson, who was accused of sexual misconduct by more than 20 women, might be the most disliked played in the entire league right now.
“Yessir D Watson!! Another one. That boy getting his rhythm back! #Browns,” he tweeted on Sunday.
Watson appeared to be getting into a rhythm after being suspended for more than half the season following more than two dozen civil lawsuits accusing him of sexual assault.

The tweet led to some scrutiny against James.
James, a noted Browns fan, was previously a fan of the Dallas Cowboys, but he denounced his fandom because of the way Jerry Jones and the organization handled the wave of protests during the national anthem.
Cheering on a guy like Watson is making him look real good right now.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
