LeBron James ‘Disappointed’ By Media Coverage Of Jerry Jones vs. Kyrie Irving, People Online Debate ‘Bigger Picture’

And the reactions online are all over the place, from questioning whether the move is genuine to applauding James’ most recent ...

“I was wondering why I haven’t gotten any questions from you guys about the Jerry Jones photo, but when the Kyrie thing was going on, you guys were quick to ask us questions about that,” LeBron said.
Someone off-camera tried to interject, but LeBron cut them off.
“When I watched Kyrie talk, and he says, ‘I know who I am, but I wanna keep the same energy when we’re talking about my people and the things we’ve ...
...been through. And that Jerry Jones photo is one of those moments that our people, Black people, have been through in America,” Lebron said.
He continued, saying it’s his responsibility as a “Black man, Black athlete” and someone “with power and a platform” to speak on the topic.
“When we do something wrong or something people don’t agree with, it’s one every single tabloid, every single news coverage, it’s on the bottom ticker, it’s asked about every single day,” James said.
“…it seems like it’s just been buried under ‘oh, it happened, okay, we just move on, and I was just kinda disappointed that I haven’t received that question from you guys,” LeBron said.
