LeBron James posts ‘Arthur’ meme after Hawks nearly take down Celtics

Minutes after former teammate Kyrie Irving and the Boston Celtics defeated the Atlanta Hawks in contested game, LeBron James posted a cryptic picture on Instagram.

James posted the widely used “Arthur” meme of the PBS character’s balled up fist and wrote, “Mood,” after the Celtics won their ninth-straight game.

The Cavaliers (4-6) lost to the Hawks 117-115 on Sunday in Cleveland and beat the Celtics in both teams’ season opener in October.

Clearly there’s a private group text going on somewhere because after James posted the photo, Dwyane Wade and former Celtic Isaiah Thomas commented on the photo.

The photo was also liked by Portland Trailblazers’ Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum.

Irving requested a trade from the Cavaliers in July and was traded to the Celtics in August for point guard Isaiah Thomas, small forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic , the Brooklyn Nets’ 2018 first-round pick and a second-round 2020 pick.
