LeBron James is a notorious frontrunner.
That’s why he left his hometown team to chase rings with the Miami Heat.
Now James revealed the reason why he no longer roots for the Dallas Cowboys.
LeBron James claims to love all things Ohio, but he said he grew up a fan of the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Yankees, and Dallas Cowboys.
But James renounced his Cowboys fandom because of the anti-American anthem protests.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he did not support disrespecting the anthem and the American flag, which angered many of the “woke” leftists who cheered on Colin Kaepernick and his copycats.
Jones said, “We cannot in any way give the implication that we tolerate disrespecting the flag…We know that there is a serious debate in this country about those issues, but there is no question in my mind that the [NFL] and the Dallas Cowboys are going to stand up for the flag.”
In a recent Instagram Live conversation with business partner Maverick Carter, James admitted he was no longer a fan.
Carter asked, “I ain’t heard you talk sh*t about the Cowboys in a long…Are you still a Cowboys fan?”
James responded, “Nah, man, I had to sit down on the Cowboys, man…It’s just things that were going on when guys were kneeling and guys were having the freedom of speech and wanted to do it in a very peaceful manner…A lot of people in they front office and a lot of people that ran the organization was like, ‘If you do that around here, then you will never play for this franchise again’…I just didn’t think it was appropriate.”
Ironically, James ripped former Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey for engaging in free speech and offering benign support for pro-freedom protesters in Hong Kong.
The protesters were against Communist China essentially putting the island under its thumb.
Since James is the face of Nike and the NBA and both entities are beholden to the Chinese market, James essentially sided with the Chinese Communist Party.
James added, “I like a lot of the players on the team still…CeeDee Lamb, obviously our boy Zeke (Ezekiel Elliot), you know, Buckeye. I still mess with him. I love Micah Parsons; he’s a dog, oh my God. Micah Parsons is a dog. You know, Trevon Diggs. But I had to turn it in.”
James said he now roots for the hometown Cleveland Browns, explaining, “I’m all in on the Browns…You know, one shining moment!”
Ironically, the cancel mob is furious with the Browns because the organization traded for Deshaun Watson and signed him to a $230 million contract despite his sex scandal.
Watson was criminally accused of sexual misconduct with two dozen massage therapists, but the grand jury chose not to indict him.
Watson then settled the civil cases.
The NFL suspended Watson for 11 games in the 2022-23 season, but many have said he should be permanently banned from the league.
