LeBron James is embarrassing, divisive, and is tearing people further apart. The worst of LeBron was shown this week when he put a police officer — a hero, I might add — in danger in an attempt to spread more hate toward innocent police officers.
Just as shameful are the spineless puppets in sports media who wouldn’t dare utter a negative word about LeBron’s dishonest view of America. Thus, the reaction had to come from those who don’t cover sports. Insert Dan Bongino, who just crushed LeBron.
“You are just an idiot,” Bongino says to LeBron. “A coward, a chump. A piece of garbage.”
“I would say that right to your face, too,” Bongino goes on.
“You put this cop’s life in danger who saved the life of a young black woman from potentially being stabbed to death. And you put his picture out to 50 million people? You are a coward.
“Don’t give the NBA another dime of your money with this idiot there. Not a dime. The NBA, MLB, they hate you.”
Here’s what makes a good rant: when not a single point can be disputed. Like that one.
As I said earlier this week, though the officer saved a life, LeBron tweets out the full image of him to ensure no matter what events follow, this man will have a target on his back. Because of LeBron, the officer will never be able to walk in public safely again. You might ask, “What if he isn’t charged?” LeBron is one of the most influential individuals in the world. No matter what, millions of his fans will believe what he says. It takes just one, and LeBron just convinced millions with a lie.
How can anyone support this race-baiter? By the way, the NBA had no problem with LeBron endangering an officer online. Another OutKick writer and I have both reached out for comment — the NBA won’t respond. Its public relations offices know me too. They’ve called me for years. They are running.
