NBA superstar LeBron James, a raging liberal who might be one of the most annoying professional athletes in the history of sports, decided to take a few moments on Wednesday to scold reporters for not asking him any questions concerning Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ most recent controversy, going on to make the assumption it must have something to do with race.
Because it’s always about race, right? Leftists are so boring. They use the same play over and over again. Where’s all the creativity? I mean, seriously. Try to cook up something new instead of using the same old tired arguments and accusations.
According to Fox News, “After the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 128-109 behind James’ 31 points, eight assists and seven rebounds, the superstar forward asked the media why no one had asked him questions about Jones and the recent photo unearthed which showed Jones as a teenager with students trying to keep an Arkansas school segregated in 1957.”
“I got one question for you guys before you guys leave. I was thinking when I was on my way over here, I was wondering why I haven’t gotten a question from you guys about the Jerry Jones photo,” James went on to ask reporters via ESPN. “But when the Kyrie [Irving] thing was going on, you guys were quick to ask us questions about that.”
LeBron James wondered why he has not been asked about the 1957 photo of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones that recently surfaced, after the media were quick to question him about Kyrie Irving.

Irving and James were teammates when they were with the Cleveland Cavaliers. In fact, a game-winning shot from Irving back in 2016 helped the Cavaliers win their very first NBA championship over the Golden State Warriors. It was James’ third championship victory.
James then commented that Irving “caused harm” when he shared a link on Twitter to an antisemitic movie.
“Jones came under fire in a story in The Washington Post last week over the photo. He was in the crowd consisting of White students attempting to deny access to six Black students at North Little Rock High School. The event occurred just a few weeks before the Little Rock Nine integrated Little Rock Central High School less than five miles away in what turned out to be one of the biggest moments of the civil rights movement,” Fox reported.
Jones has come out and acknowledged that it is indeed him in the picture, though he says he did not participate in the protest against the integration and observed the whole thing out of curiosity.
“When I watch Kyrie talk and he says, ‘I know who I am, but I want to keep the same energy when we’re talking about my people and the things that we’ve been through,’ and that Jerry Jones photo is one of those moments that our people, Black people, have been through in America,” James commented. “And I feel like as a Black man, as a Black athlete, as someone with power and a platform, when we do something wrong, or something that people don’t agree with, it’s on every single tabloid, every single news coverage, it’s on the bottom ticker. It’s asked about every single day.”
“But it seems like to me that the whole Jerry Jones situation, photo — and I know it was years and years ago and we all make mistakes, I get it — but it seems like it’s just been buried under, like, ‘Oh, it happened. OK, we just move on.’ And I was just kind of disappointed that I haven’t received that question from you guys,” James added.
Jones spoke with the Washington Post, commenting on the photograph, saying that he was “curious” about the situation, which is why he was there in person, going on to state, “I don’t know that I or anybody anticipated or had a background of knowing … what was involved.”
James has often talked about being a big fan of the Cowboys, but then, back in October, he revealed he was no longer a fan of the team because they aren’t woke enough. You know, because they won’t disrespect the country, the flag, and the National Anthem by taking a knee on the field.
“There was just a lot of things that was going on during when guys were kneeling, and guys were having freedom of speech,” James explained. “They wanted to do it in a very peaceful manner. A lot of people in their front office and a lot of people that ran the organization was like, ‘If you do that around here, then you will never play for this franchise again.’ And I just didn’t think that was appropriate.”
LeBron’s quest for attention will never end.
