LeBron James is getting trolled all over the web for failing miserably when trying to close his eyes like MJ on the free throw line

Losing LeBron James for one game isn’t all that bad for the Los Angeles Lakers. The team will reportedly save over $500,000 thanks to James’ suspension, according to Bobby Marks of ESPN.

How exactly does that work?

LeBron will lose out just over $284,000 for missing one game. The Lakers will be credited half that amount, which amounts to $142,002. According to the report, The team receives a credit on the $140,002 figure, but it also won’t have to pay the tax penalty on that amount.

The move actually saves them $532,508 to be exact.

LeBron received a one-game suspension for “recklessly hitting” Detroit Pistons center Isaiah Stewart in the face during Sunday’s game.

It was quite a scene:

Sometimes when you lose, you really win.

Lakers probably don’t care about that savings though…
