During a segment on "First Take" on ESPN, NBA insider Stephen A. Smith said younger NBA players were "turned off" by the way LeBron James spoke to them.
“I heard he was speaking out of pocket and in a fashion that really turned some of these young cats off,” Smith said, per Outkick. “This is a new day. It’s a new generation. As we have said on previous shows, when the younger generation was protesting in the streets, they’re not having it anymore. Well guess what? The younger generation of players were not having what they were hearing from LeBron James because of the fashion in which he spoke to them.”
Later on Smith said LeBron "turned everybody off" when he spoke about "the guys beneath me." It left everyone wondering who he is referring to when he says "guys beneath" him. Is he taking his "King James" nickname too literally?
Stephen A Smith says LeBron James left players and owners 'turned off'
"He was speaking out of pocket and was talking to players in a fashion that really turned some of these young cats off . . . He came across as if he was the King with some crown."

LeBron James loves to pretend to be the king of social justice all while bending the knee to China and allowing his Nike shoes to be made in Chinese sweatshops.
So LeBron James can miss me with his pretend "wokeness." The NBA's ratings have not been what they hoped for in the return and alienating half of the country will certainly not help in that regard.

The MSM is trash and they know it. There is no need to look for why their ratings are so low because it's no secret that they are complete morons.

BREAKING! MSM Outlets Drops RNC Coverage During This Speech...Including Fox News!
I've mentioned it once or twice lately and I've been discussing it with some friends of mine, but I've started noticing something about Fox News.
First of all, they are a conservative news outlet, that much is true. However, over the last couple of months, I've been noticing that they seem to be pulling a few tricks out of the playbook from the liberal outlets.
