Hack of the day woke: LeBron James – OutKick

0

LeBron James is the OutKick Woke Hack of the day.

The reason we picked LeBron has to do with a must-read report ESPN just released regarding Brooklyn Nets owner Joe Tsai and the NBA’s rocky relationship with China.

Several years ago, LeBron notably sided with the CCP against the oppressed people of Hong Kong when the quest for freedom threatened its results.

For context, we take you back to 2019 when then-Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey tweeted, “Fight for Freedom. Stand by Hong Kong.

While popular with the American public, such calls for freedom do not sit well with the CCP. So their American lackey James, who earns millions in China through the NBA and endorsement deals with China-affiliates like Nike, quickly bent the knee to his Chinese overlords and told Morey to keep his mouth shut. closed freedom-loving when it comes to China.

Here are LeBron’s own words from October 2019:

Now, the recent ESPN report claims that LeBron’s public interference in the controversy forced Tsai to act on behalf of the CCP as well:

“In Shanghai, Tsai feared the government might cancel the games, a source close to him said. He asked his Alibaba co-founder Jack Ma to contact city officials to keep the exhibitions going. Ma pulled it off.Meanwhile, LeBron James, whose new movie “Space Jam: A New Legacy” was in production, raged at players about Morey during a meeting in China at the Ritz-Carlton, according to a source familiar with the meeting. (After returning to the United States, James said Morey was “misinformed” in his opinion of Hong Kong.)”

LeBron calling someone else “misinformed”. It’s rich.

It’s unclear if any of the players LeBron raged over Morey’s tweet pushed back or called LeBron a cheat. But we can only hope.

LeBron is one of the most detestable public figures in the news today. He declared the American police racist criminals while silencing those who want to expose the human rights violations by the Chinese.

LeBron isn’t too bright either. Although he fell silent and dribbled past at the request of President Xi, China still did not allow Space Containment 2 – a film that recently won a Razzie award – which will be screened in its theaters. Without China, the film only earned about $70 millionwhile production costs reached $200 million.

Let this be a lesson: if you bow down to communists, at least make it worthwhile.
