LeBron James took a break last week from not being as good as Michael Jordan to organize a boycott over the NBA playoffs. A boycott, mind you, that Michael Jordan solved. But that's not the issue here. LeBron wanted to address the officer involved shooting in Kenosha, and politics in general (see THE HODGETWINS BLAST LEBRON JAMES OVER HIS JACOB BLAKE COMMENTS and WATCH: LEBRON JAMES DEFENDS COMMUNIST CHINA OVER MEAN TWEETS). Sports commentator Jason Whitlock wishes that the basketball player should stick with what he knows.
I'm not a fan of "shut up and dribble." Entertainers/athletes/famous people have the same right to speak out that everyone else does. The rub is that they have audiences they are insanely influential over, and I would prefer it if those political opinions were well thought out a reasoned. As Whitlock lays out in explicit detail, LeBron is anything but.
