One night after LeBron James led a historic comeback against the Los Angeles Clippers, the Los Angeles Lakers were at home to take on the struggling Washington Wizards. Even in a back-to-back, it was expected that the Lakers would make quick work of the Wizards with Saturday's matchup against the Denver Nuggets looming.

The NBA is never that easy to predict, however, and the Lakers did not go out and make quick work of the Wizards. Instead, it took an overtime period for the Lakers to defeat the Wizards as Los Angeles squeaked by with a 134-131 win.

A win is a win but the Lakers definitely didn't need to make fans panic like that with how close the game was. Every single game matters now at this point in the season and losing to the Wizards would have been utterly inexcusable.

In games like this in the past, LeBron James has not been afraid to be critical of his team even when they are on the receiving end of a W. However, this time around LeBron's focus was on something bigger, as he had probably the funniest social media post imaginable after defeating the Wizards: the status of an Outback Steakhouse in Akron, Ohio.

LeBron James was only worried about Outback Steakhouse after Lakers beat Wizards

LeBron has deep ties to his community in Akron so it is not surprising to see him legitimately upset about the status of Outback Steakhouse, especially if it is where he had his first date with his wife, Savannah.

That being said, LeBron has more money than any other professional athlete in North America, so if there was ever someone who can fork over the necessary cash to keep a restaurant alive it is LeBron. It would not be surprising if in the next few days, we all catch wind of LeBron buying this Outback in Akron that way it can stay open.

At least we know LeBron is keeping it light and will always bring levity to the situation, even if he passive-aggressively calls out his coach in the media. There aren't many superstars in sports who can do both. Never change, LeBron, never change.
