LeBron James diss of Orlando receives responses from Florida Mayor, NBA’s Magic
A viral diss from Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James against the city of Orlando, Florida, drew responses from the city’s mayor and the NBA’s Orlando Magic on Saturday.
“You always have to understand, whenever I hear ‘Orlando’ I get PTSD,” James said on the HBO show “The Shop: Uninterrupted,” referring to his three months in the NBA bubble on Disney Wide last summer World of Sports complex necessary due to the coronavirus pandemic.
He joked that he was in the bladder, the reason he hasn’t brought his baby daughter to Disney World – and he also mentioned if he’d ever play for Magic.
“You have no chance,” said James, of getting him into a deal. “I’m just retiring. It’s over. ‘LeBron was sold to Orlando.” ‘LeBron lives in Malibu,’ ”he joked.
The viral clip was tweeted by the show with a message that read, “Sorry Orlando … it’s not personal,” along with a laughing emoji and a crown.

The Orlando Magic official account jokingly responded to the tweet with a meme by Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan in an interview for the documentary “The Last Dance” and said, “… and I took that personally.”
However, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer tweeted more seriously that he was certain that James “didn’t see the other half of Orlando during your time in the bubble last summer.”

Dyer took James out for lunch the next time he visits the area.
“You will see that our community is diverse, inclusive and vibrant,” added the mayor.
James has not yet responded publicly.
