      Research my dude. Google free. You don’t have to like what LeBron says but he definitely has done A LOT for Americans all over the country. This is not opinion. It’s fact.

      @Cali If you don’t like someone commenting then why waste the energy when they won’t leave and will actually continue commenting just to tick you off and steal your energy. Gotta be smarter than them brother.

    He’s not when it comes to The people of Hong Kong

    • Aaron huang

      According to local poll. Most of HongKong residents are opposed to the rioters.

    • Aaron huang

      December 2, 2020 at 7:09 pm

      But I agree. His neutral stance on that matter is a betrayal to his HongKong fans. He should have pushed back against US aggressions.

      As if it was awful. Lebron is miles away from being a Marxist. He ain’t that political savvy to understand the class struggle.

    No one has ever divided fans of a sport more than this clown. And to act like he’s such a perfect human being to think that fans are too dumb to realize is adding insult to injury

    As soon as the bubble farce season ended lebrom went silent with the all that social justice talk now that the new season is starting soon they back with the FAKE social justice talk just another a PR Promotion to make him look good like so super social justice activist…an arrogant ego maniac narcissist he has been trying to bolster up his off the court legacy so he can say he’s greater than Jordan…All he has ever cared about are personal accomplishments legacy brand and how he is perceived by the public and the media….an opportunist he has his special interests very selective with his tweets he sits back and wait until something happens to talk about social justice an opportunist he has his special interests very selective with his tweets he sits back and wait until something happens to talk about social justice

    All of this social justice talk has just turned into a lebron james promotion it seem that it has become all about him to build his brand to make him look like the leader or spokesperson always fronting a fake stand for the media he’s trying so hard to be this “woke” social justice warrior that comes off as disingenuous and fake

    Erm.. Social justice only for the US, as he supported the Chinese regime supposing Hong Kong.

    • Jay Torr

      December 2, 2020 at 7:18 pm

      @Aaron huang let me guess. You are Chinese…

    • Aaron huang

      December 2, 2020 at 7:20 pm

      @Jay Torr yes, proud to be one.

    • Jay Torr

      December 2, 2020 at 7:51 pm

      @Aaron huang so of course the Chinese did nothing wrong with the Hong Kong protests, right? Or the reason they happened

    • Aaron huang

      December 2, 2020 at 8:02 pm

      @Jay Torr From my point of view, central government failed to intervene in the education system in HongKong to accelerate the decolonization process. As a result the HongKong youth never faced the brutal colonial rule in their life time were calling for restoration of British colony. The irony is HongKong’s diminishing economic status was caused by hyper-capitalist system which set up by British colonizers. However mainland China was worry to much about its own reputation rather than the well-being of HongKong locals.

    • Aaron huang

      December 2, 2020 at 8:15 pm

      @Jay Torr the reason the protests start was a murder case. Chang Tongkai a HongKong youth travelled with his pregnant girlfriend to Taiwan. He strangled her to death, dismembered her and discarded her body near a train station. He fled back to HongKong and withdrew some money from her card. Soon he was arrested for money laundering and theft, however he was not able to be prosecuted for murder because HongKong authorities can’t prosecute crime beyond HongKong border. HongKong legislative council came up with an extradition bill to resolve this mess. The bill DID NOT cover political crimes not like what western media suggested. And because HongKong is part of China, HongKong authorities does not recognize Taiwan as an independent country. As a result the extradition bill had to include mainland, Macau, and Taiwan. Btw Chang Tongkai has been released for more than one year. He has expressed that he was willing to turn himself in, yet Taiwan authorities lead by DPP rejected his entry to Taiwan to provoke more Chaos in HongKong.

    Did everyone forget about how he made everyone roll their eyes and dislike him when they stopped the Bubble playoffs for like 2 days for social justice?

      You wrong! It was less than 24 hours. That’s how long it took for nba to end racism 🙏

    Instead of putting a factory for his merch and employ black community in the US, he pays tribute to slavery in China.

    Lebron and the nba needs black people to be poor

  23. musicluv80

    Respect to Lebron but the media is giving him too much credit for it. Do you think Lebron would have spoke out back in the70’s, 80’s 90’s? He already had a easy platform to do this. Yes, he did it so much respect to him but let’s not give too much credit for it.
