President Donald Trump made a huge mistake with his LeBron tweet, and now he has the entire NBA running after him. Well, that’s what you get for messing with King James.
The President sure had better things to do, but he decided to get involved into a midnight NBA catfight. “Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!” he tweeted.
This triggered an avalanche of reactions, and fans weren’t happy at all. When it comes to unhappy people, LeBron James is unhappy about the current situation in sports. “Sports has never been something that divides people. It’s always been something that brings someone together,” he said, adding that the President is “using sports to kinda divide us.”
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver was among the first to respond to the comment, and he supported the NBA star. Of course.
“LeBron James is one of the all-time greatest NBA players and one of the most accomplished athletes. He runs a very successful media company. He’s sent hundreds of students to college and just opened a school in Akron where at-risk students will receive free tuition, meals and transportation. I greatly admire his intelligence and business acumen and have enormous respect and appreciation for what he does in his community,” Silver said.
Stephen Curry, Karl-Anthony Towns and Donovan Mitchell also expressed their support for the king.
“So let me get this straight: Flint, MI has dirty water still, but you worried about an interview about a man doing good for education and generations of kids in his hometown? Shut your damn mouth! Stop using them twitter fingers and get stuff done for our country with that pen,” Karl-Anthony Towns tweeted.
“A sign of an insecure human being is one who attacks others to make themselves feel better… im just sad that young kids have to see stupid tweets like these and grow up thinking it’s okay… forget everything else Donald your setting a bad example for kids. Our future,’ Mitchell responded to the President’s tweet.
“Keep doing you King James!” Curry was loud and clear.
Jordan was also pretty supportive, and he stood by LeBron during LeBron vs. Jordan debate. “I support LJ. He’s doing an amazing job for his community,” he said.
