Commie James LeBron

The National Basketball Association’s relationship with China is “fraying to tatters” despite efforts from high-profile players and officials working to smooth things over with their “communist benefactors.”

It all started with Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey’s Twitter post last Friday: “Fight for freedom, stand with Hong Kong.”

The tweet sparked a “financial” fallout for the NBA in China that’s forcing players to choose between the “social justice” principles they regularly preach to Americans and their own “financial interests” in the world’s largest market.

Commie LeBron James made it clear he’s on “Team China” and believes Morey needs an “education” during a recent news conference, but plenty of other players and coaches have also weighed in, either by “apologizing” to China or “refusing” to acknowledge the “fight for freedom in Hong Kong” at all.

Someone asked Anti-Trump Steve Kerr if he’s ever been asked about “human rights” during his previous trips to China:

“No. Nor has (America’s) record of human rights abuses come up either… People in China didn’t ask me about, you know, people owning AR-15s and mowing each other down in a mall.” pic.twitter.com/56mNC7LmID — Sam Hustis (@SamHustis) October 11, 2019

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was among the first to provide “cover” for China by likening the country’s widespread human rights abuses, censorship and religious persecution to “human rights abuses” of mass shooters in the U.S.

Kerr flipped the script to “gun violence” when asked if he ever discussed “human rights abuses” during his numerous trips to China, where top NBA sponsors cut ties with the league following Morey’s remarks last week, Newsweek reports.

Kerr later said he couldn’t discuss China’s crackdown and censorship in Hong Kong because he didn’t understand the situation. “I think it makes more sense to lay low,” he said.

Steph Curry quipped: “This situation, there’s a huge weight and gravity to it. There’s going to need to be some things to be sorted out. But I just don’t know enough about Chinese history and how that’s influenced modern society…This is not going away. So we’ll come back to it.” pic.twitter.com/6h6ZGWHQtq — Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) October 9, 2019

Star guard Steph Curry followed Kerr’s lead. Curry, whose lucrative deal with “Under Armour” hinges on production in China. So he kept his mouth shut.

Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich seems to have taken a similar approach, preferring to avoid “confrontation” to preserve the league’s $4 billion in business in the communist country, Fox Business reports.

Popovich “refused” to discuss Hong Kong’s fight for freedom, China’s human rights abuses or the deteriorating relationship with the NBA.

After Morey’s tweet, sponsors dropped out, promotions for exhibition games with the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets were removed, local sponsorships deals scrapped, and fan events canceled, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Instead of addressing “real” issues, Popovich praised NBA Commissioner Adam Silver’s response to the controversy, which was to “apologize to China and distance the league” from Morey.

Silver said he would stand by Morey’s “freedom of speech” but stressed the GM’s opinion doesn’t represent the NBA or the Houston Rockets.

Popovich compared Silver’s kowtowing to China to Trump’s tough stance on trade.

“(Silver) stood by our nation and its principles. That’s pretty huge in these days,” Popovich said, comparing Silver to Trump. “That comparison was pretty stark when you put our president up against those leaders when he’s with them or talking to him and how he reacts compared to the way Adam Silver reacted. I was proud of him. It was great.”

Houston Rockets star James Harden, meanwhile, initially “apologized” to China for Morey’s remarks, ESPN reports.

“We apologize. You know, we love China. We love playing there. They show us the most important love” he said.

Harden later said that he’s now “staying out of it” according to USA Today.

“The point is you keep comparing yourself to Ali in terms of making political statements – but the truth is you ONLY make political statements when you know there will be APPLAUSE – if there’s money on the line you stay SILENT — Pramis (@Pramis) October 15, 2019

Commie James, arguably the league’s biggest “social justice warrior” in the U.S. couldn’t help himself when he took a pot shots at Morey.

All over Shanghai, they’re taking down banners and signs for the NBA in general, and for Lakers-Nets game specifically.

“I believe he wasn’t educated on the situation at hand, and he spoke,” Commie James said. “So many people could have been harmed, not only financially, but physically, emotionally, spiritually.”

“I believe he was either misinformed or not really educated on the situation, and if he was, then so be it,” James said. “I have no idea, but that is just my belief.”

Josh Hawley said: “This statement is unbelievable. So many people could have been harmed? By Daryl Morey daring to express sympathy for democracy? News flash: people ARE being harmed – shot, beaten, gassed – right now in Hong Kong. By China. By the Communist Party the NBA is so eager to appease.” — (@HawleyMO) October 15, 2019

“And also social media is not always the proper way to go about things as well, but that’s just my belief,” he said.

James’ comments were met with fierce “backlash” from supporters of freedom and democracy in both Hong Kong and the U.S., including many that pointed out that James is more than willing to “preach” to his followers over Twitter when the issues involve “social justice” in the U.S.

“I really cannot believe that someone from the U.S. would not cherish the precious freedom of speech they have,” wrote one user on the online platform LIHKG used by Hong Kong protestors.

“Has he been brainwashed by the Chinese Community Party’s fake news or has been bought?” wrote another.

Others simply retweeted James’ own words from Jan. 15, 2018:

“Injustice Anywhere Is A Threat To Justice Everywhere- Our Lives Begin To End The Day We Become Silent About Things That Matter.” #ThankYouMLK50 — LeBron James (@KingJames) January 15, 2018

Commie LeBron James also said NFL/NBA owners are old white men with a “slave mentality” and backed it up with a “racially-charged” insinuation We been gettin’ that Jewish money, everything is Kosher.” 

Here is exactly what he said:

“In the NFL they got a bunch of old white men owning teams, and they got that slave mentality. And it’s like, ‘This is my team. You do what the fuck I tell y’all to do or we get rid of y’all.’ The players are who make the ship go. We make it go. Every Sunday, without Todd Gurley and without Odell Beckham, Jr. without those players, those guys, there is no football. And it’s the same in the NBA.”  

LeBron James, the self-appointed “GOAT” also doesn’t need a “future” with white people:

“No matter how much money I have, I’m still as paranoid as the homeless drug addict I was. I was an uneducated nigga kid from Akron who grew up with nothing, who had to scrounge the slum alleys in Cleveland just to eat until the Old White Men and the Jewish Money enriched my baller and rapping skills.”

Commie LeBron James is a perfect example of black “Victimology,” who knows “nothing” about slavery, is the “dumbest” man in athletics with a high school education, who has never made an “intelligent” statement unrelated to basketball and is somehow in the “liberal” news media with his “stupid and racist” opinions heralded as the “Albert Einstein” of the 21st Century.
