Following the Lakers' second-straight 16-point defeat to the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night, the basketball legend didn't bite his tongue or hold back his Twitter fingers!

Following the loss, James candidly expressed his frustrations with the media, saying in a post-game interview, "We could beat any team in the NBA on any given night. And then, on any given night, we could get our a** kicked by any team in the NBA. What's our record? Under .500? 24-25? That's what we are."

But James didn't keep his emotions limited to the post-game press rounds. He then went on X, the platform previously known as Twitter, and posted a mysterious hourglass emoji.
