Did you forget how good LeBron James is at basketball? Luckily for the King, he’s faring much better on the court than he is in the court of public opinion since his recent comments about Daryl Morey and the Hong Kong riots. For those of us who are old enough to remember the infamous “Republicans buy sneakers, too” quip that apparently came from Michael Jordan should realize that LeBron speaking in a way that makes some people question his integrity should be celebrated rather than punished. Many members of the media are calling this his “biggest mistake” and if that’s the case…then LeBron James is damn near perfect. You’re telling me that after 16 seasons of hooping his ass off and staying out of trouble, THIS is the worst thing we’ve ever seen from Bron-Bron? The fact that you put that much stock into the opinions of a professional athlete on an international matter as sensitive as this is more of a reflection of your own stupidity more than anything else.
Now shut the fuck up and watch LeBron ball out!
I say he averages 25 points, 11 assists, and 7 rebounds this season.
Plus 1 MVP.
And 1 Larry O’Brien.
And whatever else the King wants.
