LeBron James rips NFL Owners



https://nba.nbcsports.com/2018/12/22/lebron-james-rips-nfl-owners-saying-they-have-slave-mentality/?cid=eref:nbcnews:text


“In the NFL they got a bunch of old white men owning teams and they got that slave mentality. And it’s like, ‘This is my team. You do what the f— I tell y’all to do. Or we get rid of Y’all.’…

“The players are who make the ship go. We make it go. Every Sunday, without Todd Gurley and without Odell Beckham Jr., without those players, those guys, there is no football. And it’s the same in the NBA…. The difference between the NBA and the NFL: the NBA [cares] what we believe we can be, the potential. In the NFL, it’s what can you do for me this Sunday or this Monday or this Thursday. And if you ain’t it, we moving on.”

“I’m so appreciative in our league of our commissioner. He doesn’t mind us having… a real feeling and to be able to express that. It doesn’t even matter if Adam agrees with what we are saying, he at least wants to hear us out. As long as we are doing it in a very educational, non-violent way, then he’s absolutely okay with it.”

pretty insulting to actual slaves (just as it was when Prince did the same garbage) but that is what I expect from trash vomit like labron.

Antifa: are Fascist. People are fooled by their name! They carry out acts of violence to instill fear in order to push a political agenda or combat one. Do you support them?

...There are a lot of old white men who own NBA teams, too, but the power dynamic between star players and owners in the NBA is very different from the NFL — and NBA players have seized on this power. The NBA has always been a star-driven league, and there is a limited supply of elite those stars, which gives them leverage and power. LeBron James has been at the forefront of players taking control of that power, and he’s joined by Chris Bosh in this episode, the two of them choosing to team up in Miami to win rings.

That has extended to social issues league-wide. NBA teams have worn “I can’t breathe” T-shirts during warmups, same with other shirts commenting on police violence and racial justice issues. In the NFL, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has sued the league saying he was essentially blackballed because he knelt in protest of police violence during the national anthem.

LeBron and other players also are controlling their brand off the court more as well, not leaving their futures to guys in suits whether they be agents, investment advisors, or general managers.


thumbs up!

the suggestion is that white people should be forced to sell their teams! as teams come up for sale anyone can bid... it is not any given white person's fault nor should it be a factor in allowing them to make a bid or not.


What is it called when a person's race is used to deny them something? hummmm....

there are an estimated 40 Million slaves in the world today. To call rich people slaves is a disgrace. To agree is to show a total lack of both historical awareness and of the plight of tens of millions today.

What LeBron actually said is that a bunch of NFL owners have a slave mentality.

There is no suggestion that white people be forced to sell their teams, this is not a topic about Prince. These are the same ridiculous, tired arguments we always get here. The same people who busk for Trump and his policies are now worried about insulting "slaves". You guys are such humanitarians.

he said "bunch of old white men" so that sure seems to imply that he wants fewer old white me to own these teams.

throwing Prince into this is absolutely called for as he did the same garbage in the 90s. I would have mentioned him no matter where this story was posted.

"busk" interesting word and really nice (if a bit unusual usage)... but I've not been all that supportive of him. It is called contrast.

Wait! Weird that you get all mad that mentioned prince and here you have to bring in trump...

This is what LeBron said. Maybe you could actually read the whole thing.

How is that insulting? LeBron is absolutely correct. You could never come close to the man LeBron is. You’re calling him trash and faking like you give a damn about the feelings of former and present-day slaves? Transparency.

Lmao. You’re angry because he said ‘White men’. That’s the real reason you’re freakin out, because he’s exposing some ugly truths about some of those owners you can’t handle, so you trash LeBron for it.

It seems you’re injecting some insecurities about the fact he mentioned that there are “old white men” owning thise teams. The fact that he mentioned ‘old’ tells me he is referring to old white men, who are from the era of Jim Crow who may harbor that ‘slave mentality ‘ towards Blacks, because those old white men existed during that time. So yes, I could see LeBron’s point of view on this. Reading between the lines of a statement may help you understand things more.

nope, you are totally wrong. I am not freaking out I am pointing out that LaBron is a fool for making the comparison of 1% ers as slaves. I trash him for his garbage.

So they are democrats?

but again (as you often do) you got it totally wrong.

Sad how you defend him comparing 1%ers to slaves,

You seem to think that Slavery was mostly Africans when most slaves are of other races... And that more Black Africans were held as slaves in Arica than were held as slaves in the US.

get educated and get woke!

LeBeon is spot on.

nod The only thing he sees is white men - before he stops reading - so he attacks LeBron because no one is allowed to say that.

The way NBC Sports and others wrote about this is negative towards players in the first place. I used their title for the thread, but it could have been written as LeBron praising the NBA instead of "ripping" the NFL. LeBron isn't afraid to speak bluntly but he's not the enemy any more than Kaepernick.

🤓only a few nimrods have the bull chef mentality.
then they have the audacity to expect others to stand downwind from their crap.
it's the typical "slave overseer" mentality and colonizer's mindset. in this case, to be expected.

Seems he's $$$$$ lined the pockets of many plus.
