LeBron James: If I Were Brittney Griner I’d Question Going Back To The U.S.

LeBron James has officially weighed in on the Brittney Griner case and if you thought King James would fire off a logical thought on the matter, you’d be wrong. The WNBA star is sitting in a Russian jail after pleading guilty to bringing cannabis vape cartridges and this case has LeBron’s head turned into a pretzel.

In a promotional video for an upcoming episode of “The Shop” where LeBron opines on race and everything else to do with race, he fired off a comment that should have talking heads…talking.

“Now, how can she feel like America has her back? I would be feeling like, ‘Do I even want to go back to America?'” LeBron said of Griner’s situation.

And what exactly would LeBron do to get Griner back as the U.S. supplies Ukraine with billions in military funding in its ongoing war with Russia and Vladimir Putin?

“The Shop” promo ends before we learn of LeBron’s solution to the problem.

This is LeBron’s chance to become a hostage negotiator and get Britt Britt home himself. Imagine the street cred Bron Bron would wield if he were to call up Chairman Xi in China to announce he’s been a good boy who never talks bad about the Chinese, but this time he needs a favor of bringing home Britt Britt.

You know, throw his weight around for once. Cash in some credits with the Chinese that have been building up. This is time for LeBron to tell Xi that he was a good soldier when Daryl Morey started running his mouth and now he needs a favor.

Jordan never brought hostages home, LeBron. This is your chance to one-up the guy and fire up new debates on First Take and the Skip Bayless show.

Your move, Bron. Bring her home yourself.

And while you’re at it, you should meet with the parents of the teenage boy who was murdered — his chest was caved in — by the alleged murderers in the parking lot of your Akron school.

Let’s start small, Bron.

  1. If Griner gets back to the U.S., I bet she’d be thinking the exact opposite of what LeBron said. A situation like this would make you never want to LEAVE America again. You couldn’t pay me to leave the country. Free trip to Cabo? Nah, I’m good here on the couch.

    That’s how off-base LeBron’s thinking has become. Where the exact opposite of his opinion is how a reasonable person would act. Let’s ask Brittney when she gets back if she’s happy to be home or see if she’s ready to pack up and move elsewhere.

  2. He has just solidified his place in the Stupid Ass HOF and in that HOF he is the GOAT.
    When she gets back she will never leave this “horrible country” again. LBJ why don’t you switch places with her or negotiate to get her out. Maybe a signed jersey will do it! Thousands of people invading the country every day because this place sucks! Move to China if you’re so oppressed in Beverly Hills.
