LeBron James was only speaking his mind when it comes to the semi-no-comment about the Daryl Morey / China situation.
Unfortunately, protesters are burning LeBron James jerseys in Hong Kong. Continue on to see the lead up to the backlash…
CelebNSports247.com has the latest on LeBron James addressing the general manager of the Houston Rockets Daryl Morey’s tweet and Lakers’ trip to China
LeBron James said that he would speak up even though it meant losing popularity. With his brief comments on Morey this week LeBron may have lost fans in Hong Kong and America, but he kept the door open to grow his popularity in China. And ultimately, increase his wealth.
More hypocrisy from @KingJames: In August, James told Jon Stewart he’d keep speaking out on social issues even if its negatively affects his popularity, agrees w/ Stewart likening him to Muhammad Ali. pic.twitter.com/81XhUNiIWf

Before the Lakers took on the Warriors on Monday, LeBron James decided to make the situation worse by commenting on Rockets GM Daryl Morey.
We all talk about freedom of speech — yes, we do have freedom of speech. But at times, there are ramifications for the negative that can happen when you’re not thinking about others and you’re only thinking about yourself. I don’t believe — I don’t want to get into a … feud with Daryl Morey but I believe he wasn’t educated on the situation at hand. And he spoke. And so many people could have been harmed, not only financially but emotionally, physically and spiritually. So just be careful with what we tweet and what we say and what we do, even though, yes, we do have freedom of speech. But the can be a lot of negative that comes from that speech.

All loyalties to the swoosh on his chest. https://t.co/w4I4Sv1NB1

My team and this league just went through a difficult week. I think people need to understand what a tweet or statement can do to others. And I believe nobody stopped and considered what would happen. Could have waited a week to send it.
