NBA super star Lebron James embarrassed himself on Monday, making incoherent statements regarding China while referencing comments made by Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey in favor of Hong Kong freedom protests against the rogue communist state.
“I don’t want to get into a [verbal] feud with Daryl Morey, but I believe he wasn’t educated on the situation at hand, and he spoke,” James said to reporters before a preseason game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Golden State Warriors.
“And so many people could have been harmed not only financially, physically, emotionally, spiritually. So just be careful what we tweet and say and we do, even though, yes, we do have freedom of speech, but there can be a lot of negative that comes with that, too,” James added.
When reporters asked James to explain his incomprehensible comments, he could not do so. He just continued to repeat what sounded like a script, which very well may have been prepared by his Chinese masters.
“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. Because when you say things or do things, if you are doing it and you know the people that can be affected by it and the families and individuals and everyone that can be affected by it, sometimes things can be changed as well. And also social media is not always the proper way to go about things as well, but that’s just my belief,” he added.
After James was destroyed on social media for his stunningly low IQ comments, he backtracked hours later – showing that he lacks a spine as well as a brain.
Let me clear up the confusion. I do not believe there was any consideration for the consequences and ramifications of the tweet. I’m not discussing the substance. Others can talk About that.

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.

James’ embarrassing comments come at a time when the NBA is under fire for appeasing China while showing no regard for the values of free speech. Morey was forced to grovel publicly for offending China at a time when the NBA was celebrating its supposedly “woke” liberal opinions on social issues.
“I did not intend my tweet to cause any offense to Rockets fans and friends of mine in China. I was merely voicing one thought, based on one interpretation, of one complicated event. I have had a lot of opportunity since that tweet to hear and consider other perspectives,” Morey said in a nauseatingly obsequious apology.
“I have always appreciated the significant support our Chinese fans and sponsors have provided and I would hope that those who are upset will know that offending or misunderstanding them was not my intention. My tweets are my own and in no way represent the Rockets or the NBA,” he added.
James had previously interjected himself into matters of U.S. politics as if he was some kind of an authority. He regularly criticized President Donald Trump, and voiced support for washed up former NFL QB Colin Kaepernick as he led his anti-American kneeling act for publicity.
“He doesn’t understand the power that he has for being the leader of this beautiful country. He doesn’t understand how many kids, no matter the race, look up to the president of the United States for guidance, for leadership, for words of encouragement…. The people run this country, not one individual — and damn sure not him,” James said about President Trump in 2017.
“I stand with Kap. I kneel with Kap. I feel like what he was talking about nobody wanted to listen to. Nobody wanted to really understand where he was coming from,” James said about Kaepernick in 2018.
James also tweeted this Martin Luther King tribute, which his seem at odds with his China commentary.
It turns out that James never had a real opinion of his own. He was just a propaganda puppet for Chinese communists this entire time.
“Atlanta HAMMERS”? Why Some Braves Fans Want This to Become Their New Team Name
It has to do with their current name and the recent passing of a legendary player.
An online petition is calling on the MLB’s Atlanta Braves to rename themselves the “Atlanta Hammers.”
The petition was started by a man named Charles Shepard and is addressed to franchise owner Liberty Media Corporation and chairman Terry McGuirk. Renaming the Braves “the Hammers” serves two purposes according to Shepard: 1) honoring Hank Aaron, the baseball legend who spent the vast majority of his career with the Braves and passed away on Friday, and 2) removing “the stain on the city [for] having a team name that dishonors Native and Indigenous people.”
“There is no better time to take this action given the trend started by The Washington Football Team, the soon-to-be renamed Cleveland Indians, and with the Major League Baseball All-Star Game coming to Atlanta later this year. Please change the name to honor a person and player that Atlantans and Americans can be proud of,” the petition concludes.
Shepard’s petition only has 871 signatures as of Monday afternoon, a far cry from his hope of getting hundreds of thousands. “Truist Park, the team’s home stadium, has 41,129 seats. Let’s fill ’em with signatures several times over!” he declared.
Hank Aaron is widely renowned among the baseball community. Born in 1930s Alabama, he briefly played in the Negro American League before beginning his major league career with the Atlanta Braves. He is considered one of the all-time great hitters, and his record of 755 home runs stood for 33 years before being broken by Barry Bonds. But because of Bonds’ alleged steroid use, some still consider Aaron to be the true home run king.
The “Hammers,” needless to say, is a terrible name for a sports team. Plus the Braves have previously been resolute in refusing to change their name. Like the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks, the Braves say it honors, not disparages, Native Americans.
Anything can happen, however. The erstwhile Washington Redskins—now the Washington Football Team—previously said multiple times they wouldn’t change their name either. The Braves have also attempted to minimize symbols of its nickname in the past; one such attempt involved removing a “Chop On” sign near the entrance to their ballpark last July.
But even if they do decide to bow to the mob and change their name, I wouldn’t put money on it being the “Hammers.”
