LeBron To NBA: ’Dump The Anthem Or I’ll Quit’

This past Tuesday, the NBA’s LeBron James created quite a scene and angered millions when he angrily walked off the court during the playing of our national anthem. This was his ‘protest’ it seems, the next stage of disrespect that began with kneeling in the NFL.

Now James is stepping it up even more. Yesterday, Joseph Barron, Esq., a  lawyer for James hand-delivered a letter to the offices of the NBA advising them of his client’s intention to end his basketball career if the anthem were to be played in his presence ever again. Text of the ultimatum, written by LeBron himself, is below:

“Dear NBA,

The Star Spangled Banner is an offense to people of colour across America. To have it played before the games of the greatest player this league has ever known – ME – is hugely insulting. It shows me that you do not respect your star. And this after all I’ve selflessly done for you.

I DEMAND THAT THIS NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN.

You owe me. I saved this league and I can take it down. My departure now – when there is nobody close to equalling me ready to take my place -would devastate earnings. If I hear that crappy tune again, I’m done. I will walk away from the NBA forever. No playing, no coaching, no commentating. I will be history and I’ll take all the fans I brought in with me.

It’s either the song or me.

CHOOSE.

Respectfully,

LeBron Earnest James”

There us no question that James’ departure would affect the league but he thinks far too highly of himself. Most basketball fans don’t back traitors to the flag. Just go LeBron. The NBA will be better off without you.

  1. He just don't get it. Maybe some judge will make him clean the tombstones at Arlington! I wish my DI's would get hold of his ass for a few weeks he would stop thinking he has suffered from the slavery of the Antebellum era. Somebody will need to tell his egotistical ass what that means!!

    2. Dear Mr. James, just because you are a great basketball player and celebrity doesn't mean you're not an arrogant, stupid a**hole. I suggest you try to pull your head out of your ass and do your best to see America and yourself for what they really are. Mr. James, the majority of black people do not have a problem with the long held, world-wide tradition of national anthems being played before sporting events. Ooh, excuse us Mr. James, I didn't realize that you are so much smarter than everybody else. Your type will not be missed.

  7. He's getting to big for his britches! Get him out. Our Anthem stays. We will still watch basketball. If he's the greatest player of all times, he might as well retire. He can't get any better than that!
