LeBron James’ criticism of Daryl Morey receives backlash on social media
Lebron James, the Los Angeles Lakers’ star who often comments on domestic, social and political issues, criticized Houston Rockets’ GM Daryl Morey‘s ‘misinformed’ decision to take to Twitter to call on support for protesters in Hong Kong who are facing off against what they see as an encroaching Beijing.
In the HOOD, it is called running your mouth. Lay-Bron has a bad habit of doing just that. Several times he stuck his nose into PDT’s business and social issues where it did not belong and later having to apologize for his comments.
On one occasion, James claiming Trump had a dirty mouth; also claiming he never heard such vulgar language. My rebuttal to that was; he grew up in the streets, played sports all of his life, hung with nothing but ruffians and street kids BUTT claims he never heard the word pussy before. GMAFB lad.
Oct 8, 2016 – Trump continues: “And I moved on her very heavily. …… @James Joyner: Why shouldn’t you take the “grab them by the pussy” line literally?
GMAFB Lay-Bron. If I had a dollar for every-time Lay-Bron said pussy, I could buy the crib next door to him.
He has to learn, if you live on a glass court, be careful on how hard you dribble the ball; it may come back and hit you in the nuts.
Here again, Lay-Bron is forced to cop a plea with the Chinese for commenting on the Hong Kong rioting. It may be bad for business. BUTT if a person feels so strongly/adamant about an issue, they should not try to weasel out of their comments.
James mea culpa:
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.
“I’m not here to judge how the league handled the situation. I just think that, when you’re misinformed or you’re not educated about something – and I’m just talking about the tweet itself – you never know the ramifications that can happen,” James said. “We all see what that did, not only did for our league but for all of us in America, for people in China as well. Sometimes you have to think through the things that you say that may cause harm not only for yourself but for the majority of people. I think that’s just a prime example of that.”
The fact of the matter is, with all of the excessive accolades laid on the lad, James really believes he is THE KING and can do or say anything he wants to with no repercussions. That has been proven wrong more times than right.
Personally; I think the people in Hong Kong are 100% right for wanting to maintain the freedoms they had when the British had control. I wish them the best. They are up against a very brutal government that is not afraid of using deadly force to maintain what they have. The only thing, their only salvation to this point is, the only thing stopping the troops from opening fire on the crowds are; THE CAMERAS.
To THE KING; if you can’t back it up – zip it up. Do what you do best …..
