Has LeBron James created a trend?
Last Monday, the four-time MVP posted an image of the ‘Arthur Fist’ — a pretty popular meme back in 2016 that has died down in terms of relevance this year — with the caption ‘Mood…’ on his Instagram, indicating LeBron was mad about something, perhaps the Cavaliers terrible start to the season.
Then, a day later, James posted a collage of pictures of him making a fist with every team he’s played for in his career with the caption ‘Mood Forever…. #StriveForGreatness‘, telling us that the meme was posted as a sign of celebration, for whatever reason considering that’s definitely not what the meme is supposed to be used for.
Anyway, fast-forward a week to now, and the Cavs have moved on to 7-7 on the season after beating the Knicks in a huge comeback effort at Madison Square Garden.
At this stage, Arthur may as well become the Cavs’ official mascot, as I haven’t seen his face this much since I was a child.
In what started out as a misunderstood meme posted by LeBron, has now turned into an inside meme within the Cavaliers organization just to roast LeBron himself.
