Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James triggered another controversy with his most recent comments. LeBron has earned an army of supporters in the last decade. He is always here to voice his concern and support the less fortunate. Well, he always talks when things don’t go right. In the latest development of events, LeBron slammed a broadcaster, asking for him to be fired.
In Wednesday’s game, Houston Rockets guard Kevin Porter Jr. hit a 3-pointer to lead his team to a win. Wizards broadcaster Glenn Consor made some concerning comments about this.
“Kevin Porter Jr. – like his dad – pulled that trigger right at the right time,” Consor said.
Well, these comments didn’t sit well with the NBA world. Porter’s father killed a 14-year-old almost two decades ago. A lot of people were disturbed by Consor’s comments, and LeBron couldn’t stay quiet. The four-time NBA champion took to his Twitter account to blast Consor. He called him “insensitive” and wants him out of the game.

It seems like Consor made a mistake. In his most recent statement, Consor shared his thought of the situation. He issued an apology to the Porter family and the Houston Rockets. The broadcaster thought Kevin’s father was former Washington star Kevin Porter.
“Please allow me to take this opportunity to sincerely apologize to Kevin Porter Jr., his family and the Rockets organization for the comments I made during last night’s game. I mistakenly thought that Kevin was the son of former Washington player Kevin Porter and was unaware that the words I chose to describe his game-winning shot would be in any way hurtful or insensitive. I have reached out to Kevin to personally apologize and hope to be able to talk with him soon.”
Now we have people calling out LeBron for his reaction. Wizards big man Marcin Gortat accused King James for trying to shut down a “very honest hard working man right now.”
Well, we have a few good reasons to believe that the saga won’t end here. A lot of people were shocked. A lot of people feel sorry.
