    He only talks about social justice if it helps his brand financially. He’ll never say anything about the sweat shops where his shoes are made either.

    He should lobby Nike to have them produce their shoes in the cities where jobs are sorely needed.

    Yup. Time to put up or shut up. If you are for justice and equality for those in the inner cities then prove it.

    They know it's bad business to open up factories in the inner cities. Their investment would be in jeopardy the next time a national "social justice" issue reared it's ugly head.

    This story is disturbing. If this is all true--that coaches were abusing kids at NBA-sanctioned training camps and denying them the opportunity for education—we should expect the NBA to take a hard look at its cozy relationship with the repressive Chinese government.

    How does LBJ wearing a “I can’t breathe” tshirt help his brand? How does him spending millions of dollars to educate kids help his brand when in fact it cost much more to fund? Should he be like MJ who never stood for nothing? Who the Fukk are you to tell him what he should be doing or what he should protest? Your ass is broke. Why should he listen to a dumb broke Fukk, who doesn’t give a shit about him anyway. You’re just a hater waiting for him to fail. Keep holding your breath lol.

    Yeah dumb shit. As long as Lebron says what people in the media and black community want to hear, they act like he can’t do anything wrong. Lebrons relies on positive publicity from the media who back him as long as he repeats their talking points and don’t question his bullshit.

    You are broke dick dog that can’t even become a pro and you’re criticizing one of the most influential athletes in history. But it makes you feel better to shit on him, so carry on.

    He says nothing about black on black crime, and his shoes are made in sweat shops. He’s absurd as a social justice messenger dumb shit.

    Relax Mac. Your pro status means nothing. Zero. You want to cash out a 50 dollar walmart gift card or a SBR hat that badly? Guys here are gambling hundreds of dollars a game -- I've been using my tokens for 10 years and dumping them all on 8 and 24 in roulette because i get some joy for 5 seconds as the ball spins.

    The media has been giving China a pass for years because of how much money companies that advertise on their networks make there, they have over 2 million people in concentration camps and China are trying to ethnically cleansed the Muslim community as they did in Tibet.

    By the way Lebron didn’t even find the overwhelming majority of his I promise school, 80% of the money is put up by Ohio tax payers, and he too all the credit for the school, he’s a fraud. He has nothing to say about concentration camps on China, black on black violence, or any other issue that isn’t a talking point for the left.
