NBA Twitter Crucifies LeBron James Over Controversial Comments About China

LeBron James China

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James finally broke his silence on the current controversy between the NBA and China on Monday night, and the reactions have been far from supportive.

In his comments, James criticized Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey for speaking about a situation that “he wasn’t educated on.”

This approach has led fans and critics alike to speak out against James, who is seemingly cowing to the Chinese government, which has an apparent inability to take criticism from members of the NBA.

While James tried to smooth things over in a second message that he published to his personal Twitter, it has not quelled the social media storm that the four-time MVP now seems to be at the center of.

One interesting aspect of this outpouring of criticism is that very little of it is coming from James’ colleagues in the NBA. Still, there have been a few to come forward to speak out against him.

Of course, the vast majority of criticism is coming from Internet and social media trolls who try to hate on James regardless of what he does. The outpouring of disapproval from seemingly unbiased sources is what is most notable.

The drama surrounding the NBA and China is clearly ongoing. James’ comments are the latest chapter in the continuing story, but it likely won’t be the last.

With the 2019-20 regular season right around the corner, it will be fascinating to see how the league at large tries to move on from this difficult time so as to keep it from muddying the waters once meaningful games finally begin.
