The Top 10 Dumbest Things Lebron James Has Said

NBA superstar Lebron James is an incredible athlete and absolutely dominates the basketball court. However, his record off the court has been far less stellar, with James racking up an embarrassing record of saying some of the stupidest and most clueless statements on politics and current events possible.

Here are some of the star’s dumbest and most embarrassing moments:

Candice Owens blames Lebron for BLM violence

In the wake of the LA County Sheriff’s shooting on September 12, conservative author Candice Owens blasted James inciting violence against the police with a tweet that read: “We’re literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME we step foot outside the comfort of our own homes,” which he posted in the wake of the Ahmaud Arbery shooting.  

LA Sheriff’s Challenge

Following September’s Compton shooting of two officers, Sheriff Alex Villanueva challenged James to match the $175,000 reward to find the suspect.  The usually outspoken athlete’s response was “zero comment.” 

Silence on Darfur

When James doesn’t have the right answer, inaction is his fall back. In 2008, LeBron’s teammate Ira Newble approached James about signing letter condemning China for the country’s role in the Darfur genocide. Newble said at the end of the day, James, who had his own museum in Shanghai at the time, declined to sign the letter.

Hong Kong

Perhaps James only clams up when China is involved. After Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey’s tweeted support for Hong Kong protesters, the NBA released a statement that his comments were regrettable.  

Ever the company man, James commented that he believes Morey “wasn’t educated on the situation at hand,” and added, “so many people could have been harmed, not only physically or financially, but emotionally and spiritually.”

Morey Backlash

After receiving harsh criticism for his comments, James took to Twitter back track that he didn’t think Morey was uneducated about the situation, but the consequences of China’s reaction. “I do not believe there was any consideration for the consequences or ramifications of the tweet.” 

Rough Week

In a follow-up tweet he said, “My team and this league just went through a difficult week. I think people need to understand what a tweet or statement can do to others. And I believe nobody stopped and considered what would happen. Could have waited a week to send it.”

Surely the league’s rough week had nothing on the Hong Kong protestors being teargassed. Commenters on Twitter had no sympathy for LeBron or the NBA.

Calling out Trump

When Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry declined to visit the White House after the team’s 2017 NBA Championship win, President Trump rescinded the invitation. James called the president a “bum,” and said, “Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!”

Give Trump Lemons…

James accused the President of trying to divide the country with sports in an interview with Don Lemon. “He’s used sport to divide us, and that’s something that I can’t relate to,” he stated. “It has never been something to divide people. It has always been something to bring people together.” 

“I like Mike” 

In response to the interview, Trump said Don Lemon “made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do.”

When asked if the President’s comment bothered him, James responded, “What bothers me is that he has time to even do that. He has the most powerful job in the world. Like, you really got this much time that you can comment on me?”

Jeering at Trump

In an interview with the web series Uninterrupted, James said of Trump: “The number one job in America … is someone who doesn’t understand the people, and really don’t give a fuck about the people”

Why would he drop out? He was making a fortune to play college ball.

Lebron should give all his wealth to the disadvantaged he talks about to prove his “concern”. Has anyone else wondered how he “just” got religion in 2020?? Of course, let him save enough money to move to any other Country that would have given him the opportunities to become as wealthy as he has for simply being able to handle a basketball ? What a hypocrite!
