On Monday, Fox Sports personality and analyst Skip Bayless said he has inside information that NBA star LeBron James, who frequently wades into politics, is planning to run for President of the United States.
“I’m close with a guy who is very close to LeBron,” Bayless said during an episode of Fox Sports’ “Undisputed,” reported NESN. “And this guy spent a lot of time with LeBron over All-Star weekend in Chicago.”
“And, as soon as Shannon [Sharpe] and I did this topic on Friday, this guy that I’m close to immediately texted me and he said, ‘No no no no, [James] really considering this, and he was way — and it’s got a lot of ‘Y’s’ on the end of ‘way’ — way before [DeMarcus Cousins] came out with it.”
Bayless added: “And, the guy I know said, ‘It’s a plan of his but not yet a goal.’ But he emphasized he’s really — all caps — considering running for president of the United States.”
Will there ever come a day when Americans are ready for a President Lebron James? Only time will tell.
