    Stop sticking your head in the sand because it's him.

    If you support a racist....then you are a racist

    And Lebron James is as racist as they come from any color

    The nail in the coffin is when someone says "They".

    "They use it against us".

    Lumping an entire race into one category.

    What if a white person said "They all loot & kill each other"

    You know as good as I do that when you use that word "They", it's a racist azz person

    A poll conducted by Yahoo News/YouGov back in March showed that 34.5% of respondents have watched less NBA as the community continue with their social justice campaigns.

He is the reason so many people have stopped watching the NBA.
    I caught this Scumbag lying about his service and lying about my posts. Heís stealing valor.

    Lebron has never been in trouble with the law and is a great family man who gives back to his community. Respect to the greatest of all time, King James.

Most of the posters here have typed way more repugnant shit than what he did. I guess if the Lakers don't win another chip I might start caring but until then it's just noise.
    Very true.

    Athletes are paid to play sports, not play politics. Obviously they have a first amendment right, but don’t go crying to mama when you alienate the NBA fan base the way Lebron has. And don’t go crying about respect Lebron. Obviously he can speak his mind, but we can change the channel, and most of America has. Saw a poll where he’s one of the most disliked athletes in the modern era. You may still like him, but you are in the small minority my friend.
    NBA is HUGH globally
    Ratings up this year
    New TV deal will be triple the old one

    Trust me they love it

    I don't particularly like LeBron except that he's a Laker and I am a Lakers fan. Had they not won last year, maybe that would have changed. I definitely don't listen to his political takes but then again I don't listen to Carushow's either. I just watch the games and if I bet on them, hopefully collect some dough.

    Now for the record, I don't hate on LBJ.
    His work ethic is unmatched.
    I read a piece a few months back where three athletes (Brady, Russ Wilson, Lebron James) invest more in themselves (diet, workout equipment, etc.) than any other athletes.
    I like the fact James will go to war for his son, I place a premium on family welfare, good on him.
    And James contributes money to charity. good on him again.

    There's plenty I dislike.
    Like his ego.
    I have trouble with a self proclaimed 'King James'
    Come on dude, get over yourself, you aren't a king.

    The pregame powder ritual.
    Doesn't help his game, it's not necessary, it's stupid, and he's not promoting Johnson and Johnson baby powder either.
    It's just a 'hey, look at me" show. And the cameramen show it because the producers direct the cameramen to show it to us who don't really want to see it.
    HHH spitting water in the WWE as a pre match ritual, pretty cool, NBA is not the WWE
    (actually it is, the only difference is the WWE admits it's shit is rigged, NBA pretends the games are real)

    He's not as clutch as you think he is.
    It seems to me he bricks a free throw late in a close game.

    I can go on and on.
    He quit on Cleveland, he's a flopper. he cries over non fouls way too often.
    "The Decision" was aa disgusting display of self promotion.
    Jordan Crawford dunked on his shit and James ordered Nike to lose that videotape because of embarrassment.
    He's the king of back handed compliments.....

    By the way Pippen was the selfish one on that Bulls teams, no Jordan.
    Jordan has more walk off buzzer beaters than James and Lebron has played in what? a million more games.

    I'm not saying James is evil, he's not Hitler, he has redeeming qualities.
    There's just way too much there to dislike.
    And it has nothing to do with skin color, don't even call me out on that.

    Top five. Yeah

    And that's why I respect him, he made himself into one of the best ever.

    But for reason stated above (and other's I didn't mention) it's hard for me to tonally respect him.

    I believe Lebron is the best ever. Guys donít like him for personal reasons but if Iím drafting a team of players all in their prime. Heís my 1 pick.

    King James is gonna need to hit more of those amazing shots to beat the Suns. That's all I know going forward. Lakers still need to wake up on the offensive end and shift gears for a full game.

    Lakers should not be the favorites going in. They still have work to do as a team.

    They got lucky in the 4th quarter against a lessor team in the Warriors and they needed a miracle shot by Lebron to win that game last night at home in the final seconds.

    Lakers were down most of that game and their offense was clearly sputtering. Can't do that against the Suns in Phoenix.

    A racist..a race baiter.....a liar who makes up stories....and always proclaiming himself as the greatest
    after lakers didn't have to face clippers and got to be 4 to 1 favorites in finals vs heat who then got injured so lakers won in 6... he was crying out loud to the mic

    "i just want my damn respect"

    then don't flail on the ground after a semi hard foul with hands to ur forehead like you just got shot 5 times

    Yep. I tried to say this before.....the right matchup will bring the ratings. People can say they hate LBJ all they want but a Lebron vs Curry, KD and a few others will get eyes.

    Ppl can bet and not watch

    That's what most of us do

    Now I DID used to follow & wager on it religiously.
    And with much success (all documented)

    But well before Queen James started turning ppl off, the game starting changing too much until the point it's at now where it's just street ball with no D.

    All of them acting as if each & every night it's an all star game where they just allow each other to score at will.

    It's a total joke and not interesting in any way anymore.
