LeBron James is a very polarizing figure. You either love him or hate him, there is no middle ground with this guy.
Is he one of the greatest to have ever picked up a basketball? Without a doubt. His stats and number of NBA titles make that an easy argument. He’s a first ballot hall of famer.
But given the amount of crying and complaining the guy does on the court, and his tendency to speak out on political matters when it suits him and when it comes to the China situation, when he benefits financially, are more than enough for a lot of people to have a strong dislike for the guy.
Well, it appears James has struck again. Prior to last night’s regular season opener against the LA Clippers, James was spotted and heard screaming during the national anthem.
Maybe it didn’t mean anything but maybe it did. However, given his recent comments about China and how free speech is dangerous at times, it doesn’t look good for LeBron.
Oh, and the Lakers lost to the Clippers 112-102.
