Referring to Lakers icon Kobe Bryant, supporters jeered James with chants of "Kobe's better".

The NBA's most talented player missed the free-throw causing the sold-out crowd at State Farm Arena in Atlanta to roar in unison.

The Lakers, who had picked up their defense to jump into a top-10 team in the less-lauded art of basketball, have reverted to their old ways, and getting James back after a month-long absence from a groin injury hasn't helped them much. He fired another pass between James' legs, but John Collins was fouled on the entry pass. Collins made his two resulting free throws.

While the Hawks came away with a win, James finished with 28 points, 11 rebounds and 16 assists for his fifth triple-double of the season.

The Lakers continue to struggle by falling to 28-29 and are now 10th place in the Western Conference playoff race.

The vote was 54-45, primarily on a party-line basis with most Republicans backing the 68-year-old and most Democrats opposed. That view has alarmed Democrats, especially since the obstruction inquiry has been central to Mueller's investigation.

LOS Angeles Lakers star LeBron James was trolled during the Lakers' defeat in Atlanta.

When asked about the possibility of missing the playoffs, James stated that he'll worry about it when he either makes it or doesn't, not to mention that he believes the team might have lost focus with the All-Star break taking place this upcoming weekend.

"We either make it or we don't make it".

James told reporters he wasn't chasing another championship in Los Angeles.

One, Aron, wrote on Twitter: "Say what you want by Michael Jordan and Kobe played every moment of their careers like they still had something to prove even when they didn't". He has covered The Obama White House, the summer Olympics in London, and now serves as Lifestyle Editor for Rolling Out magazine.
