Posted on 10/23/2019 6:03:49 PM PDT by Mr. Mojo
The NBA was understandably excited to start its season and get away from the China controversy that had embroiled the league over the past couple weeks.
However, even more controversy ensued on Tuesday night and on into Wednesday as video surfaced showing LeBron James walking off the court and screaming while the national anthem played.
James faced a firestorm of criticism after saying that Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey wasnt educated on the China-Hong-Kong issue, before he sent a message of support to pro-democracy protesters earlier this month.
While backpedaling, James said that he is not a politician, and said that not every issue should be everyones problem.
Since that time, James has said he will no longer talk about the NBA-China rift. The Lakers star forward also did not have any comment about his disrespect towards the flag on Tuesday night.

Is LBJ cracking up or what?!
LeBron is benefiting greatly from Chinese slave labor.
NBA has turned into a circus.
He can put a ball through a hoop.
So can a seal.
NBA is a thug sport.
Its just sad these libtard hypocrites care more about other countries’ respect than their own country they despise and are actively trying to destroy.
So can a seal.
That will leave a mark.
If American Soldiers had not sacrificed their lives, there would be no Labron James.
Perhaps they were mistaken?
You offend most Americans when using that language while trying to punish an idiot. Please punish him a better way that doesn’t shaft the rest of us.
Have some humility Lebron.
Vote with your feet. I’m done going to the Staples Center.
People who pay any attention to these schmucks are just that.
I’m not offended.
Hey James, just shut up and dribble. That’s all you’re good for.
Spending his life surrounded by luxury and sycophants, Comrade James probably never anticipated the recent criticism coming his way. He’s unhinged.
