NBA star LeBron James seemed unimpressed by the new name for D.C.'s football team in a tweet shared Thursday.

James said he woke up from a nap to read that the team would now go as the Washington Football Team. The temporary choice seemed uninspired to James.

"Is that real?? No way! Oh man they had a thorough intense long board meeting about that one huh," James wrote.

The announcement on the name change came from a team on Thursday. The franchise will play as the Washington Football Team for the 2020 season while they decide on a permanent name.
