  1. I agree with LeBron James. HKs always think there way is right and if
    anyone has a different opinion there say its not democracy or freedom,
    these people are literally inventing new meaning in the English
    dictionary! Pro-Democracy = Cult = Terrorist = ISIS.

  3. risking their lives for basic liberty? can’t think of any other country would allow such violent riot to go on for so long, these so called protesters had all the liberty they need and they used that liberty for violent chaos

  4. BE REALLY CAREFUL AFTER ALL THIS GUY IS A KING, IN HIS OWN MIND AND CLEVELAND SPORTS CROWD ACTUALLY BELIEVE IT. YOU REMEMBER THE CLEVELAND SPORTS CROWD THEY ARE THE ONES THAT THROUGH BEER BOTTLES AT PLAYERS. JUST A FINE BUNCH OF SPORTSMAN.

  5. LeBron is an NBA puppet and China's money makes the NBA their puppet. So what do y'all think. LeBron is the talking mouth of the NBA and that's it.

  6. He cant help himself. He lives in a bubble and is only concerned with his bottom line. NBA stay out of China. Black lives matter but screw the people of Hong Kong. He is nothing but a hypocrite.

  7. Le Bron, go to China and stay there. See for yourself how the Communist Party screws up the people.
    When Mao was marching through China in the 30's and 40's, the slogan of his Communist cabal was "Serve the People". No. not slogan, call it propaganda. And there is a corollary doctrine they practiced to the hilt: "Power comes from the barrel of the gun."

    The present day Communist cabal still practice this doctrine and it guides them when when crush dissent in their country, in Hongkong and elsewhere. They use it to steal territories from weaker and poor countries.

    Do you want to be labeled a COLLABORATOR James?

    Its not too late to make things right , James.

  8. BLACK players (people) don't be used by the white politic to achieve their political goal. LEBRAVE is a real HERO, especially for his black people.

  9. LEMORON SHOULD HAVE KEPT HIS IMBECILIC OPINIONS TO HIMSELF. HE SHOULD HAVE STICK TO BASKETBALL AND NOT GEOPOLITICS. MAYBE HE SHOULD MOVE TO THE COMMUNIST REPUBLIC OF CHINA AND PLAY OVER THERE TO SEE HOW HE LIKES IT.

  10. Twist the situation, James son was hold in HK airport and that's why James personally knowing well enough about the situation. He saying just to explain basketball game is take people away from political issues and stop using personal opinion to influence people make the whole situation even more worse, that's why he is saying to stop drag basketball game into political.

    Look at HK riots, just because someone have different voice towards them straight away they start have hatlre towards him. Like when we upset with Molly saying, anti-china group straight away saying we didn't provide human rights on this matters, we are over reacting in this and ban for no reason. What a double standard!

  11. Don’t be fooled, LeBron is not really interested in defending human right in or out of the country . Domestically, black racism is disguised as an advocate for human right. Very often , these people would complain lack of freedom or injustice in the very place where it has the most of those quality. The real LeBron is shown here . You people are giving too much credit to this “ educated” person for crying out loud.

  12. He makes more money through Beijing than he does Hong Kong. The protests are disrupting China as a whole, especially when it concerns their consumerism. So much so that it is creating and leading to a recession. A recession is not good for not just the NBA but many western companies that rely on Chinese sales. The Chinese love basketball, and Lebron has a large hand in that. He’s worried about his money and respectfully his safety when he travels there to make more money. He should shut up, stay in his lane, and know his role.

  13. Well well well looks like LaFraud's true colors are showing smh what a hypocritical uneducated moron. That is unbiased comimg from me because before this I was at least somewhat a LeBron fan despite all of his cry baby "can't point the finger at me ever" antics.

  14. This idiot on the bottom right thinks LeBron is so righteous and thinks LeBron is an angel just because he's never gotten a parking ticket LMFAO there are plenty of people who have never got in trouble that are crappy people. I'm not saying LeBron is a piece of crap but he just thinks his doo-doo don't stink and he can never do anything wrong. He needs to go educate himself and just because he's LeBron James doesn't mean he's God's gift to the world, because he's not. we shouldn't value his opinion especially on matters like this because he is biased 90% of the time and he is being a sell-out on this matter because if it were to happen here in the US he would be on the other end of his own words.He needs to just worry about the Lakers.

  15. Here's what I wonder.
    There's two ways to get an official LeBron jersey: buy it or steal it.
    Assuming the protestors were former fans and bought the jerseys, or just now bought them only to burn them, that's more money for LeBron.
    If they stole the jerseys, that changes the perspective a bit, because then they're criminals… but not buying the jerseys is really the only way they could hurt LeBron with any of this. I'm sure he doesn't like to see his merch burned on the news, but so long as you paid for it first, he'll get over it. Well, I would, anyway.

  16. Shoot, if north Korea were to spend billions sponsoring the NBA, LeBron and others would go there to collect some cash and kimchi…Sho me the money!

  17. Mr. Lebron, I find it appropriate say that you are not well versed in their political environment. You’re entitled to your opinion but it doesn’t mean you always have to share one.

  18. Most westerners don’t know what is really happening in Hong Kong 🇭🇰 because they only watch biased western media that report violent rioters and criminals as “peaceful protesters”. Do some researches on your own to find out the truths . Don’t be fooled by the stupid and biased media.

  19. It's amazing to see how America spins and condemns anyone who is on the wrong side of their propaganda. How will an athlete survives these malicious rumour mongering media who prosecutes without realising the extent of the matter. No wonder the country is divided.

  20. LeBron, please do a Tucker Carlson interview and "educate" all of us on HK; Hopefully you spare some time away from your Hillary fan club!!

  21. If your supporting the protesters/rioters/terrorists you need to educate yourself.

    Google and read what normal Hong Kong citizens are saying. Watch the 100’s of videos where citizens are being beaten up because they have a different opinion. It is beyond disgusting. If your fighting for democracy how can you not allow other opinions. Absolutely sick.
    Hong Kong is rated by the Cato Institute in the 3rd spot on the human freedom index and the US is in the 17th position.

    Don’t be brainwashed by the lies.

    Please educate yourself before taking sides

  22. An American commented on the Internet: "The Syrian government used chemical weapons last week!" At this time, one person said to the Americans: "I was in Syria last week and found no chemical weapons." The Americans ignored him and continued. Comments: "We recently found that there is no freedom in hk." Someone stood up and said: "I was at hk last week, and it is very free here." The Americans said seriously: Don't go around and watch more news. Such as CNN and BBC.

  23. HS educated and dribbling the leather ball = world class educated , boycott Nike and Lenin James. Get him out of NBA – Next Kap

  24. Forty years ago I promised myself no penny of my hard earned money would pay for movies , sports,or music industry, of course not for porn industry. Iam still committed to my promise after forty years.

  25. There is only one difference between sharpton and james..a basketball..both are liars, haters, and losers..only money and attention are their talents for accumulating both..satan is their God and hell is their destination..

  26. So you bought the jersey…just to burn it? No purpose in that whatsoever. You gotta record yourself stealing the jersey then burn it.

  27. What about morey charities? He’s done a lot too. You want to open a charity that comes from blood money? I don’t think so. You must be Al Capone. The real issue here is, he’s an idiot. He can talk what ever he wants but not other. Therefore he’s a puppet.
    Free Hong Kong, Tibet and the south pacific sea.

  28. Bravo. Adam Silver has everyone blaming Lebron James, LBJ still makes tens of millions with his movie in china, and has everyone thinking the other 459 players thinking they still care now….

  29. Even tho LeBron is not a expert on the subject , But the hidden language that hes not saying is…why are we listening as Americans to what blk basketball players have to say? He's saying of course he's a great ball player but he's only a basketball player and im white and intelligent..ask me not him? Be concerned with what I say and not a blk ball player

  30. Why am I not surprised that Fox is jumping down people's throats for not being pro HK. I think the only people who get a say in this are the people being affected by this, and I certainly don't mean the protesters, I mean the vast majority of the population who don't agree with the protesters trying to live their lives peacefully and make a living but are being dragged into streets and beaten or terrorized by these rioters. And this is not coming from "fake news", I actually know people who live in HK and they're living in fear every day. Who the F cares what LeBron James says about this? He probably doesn't even know where HK is on a map.

  31. America, boycott NBA and NFL now. No more support for these idiots! Hit them where it hurts, their wallets! Where would they be without white dollars? Nowhere!

  32. Even if people burn or throw away his merchandise and even if he “looses”, this will be a small blip in his life. I’m sad that he’s totally ignorant of the truth but millions think like him. He’ll still be a billionaire several times over when he retires etc. He doesn’t care about being criticized or loosing a few million

  33. It’s so frustrated that nobody cares us… I genuinely wish I wasn’t born in Hong Kong. What we have gone through and what we are fighting for seem nothing to the world. Somebody who is capable to fix the situation please helps us…

  34. The guy from the intro said it best. Lebron is a stupid kid that does cool things with a ball. AND THAT'S IT. PERIOD. ITS when he tries to give his two cents that gets the sub 80 IQ IMBECILE in trouble.

  35. This all popping up in my feed like it's new news. Dang politics messing with my football/basketball season… lucky sh!t for hockey!!!!!

  36. i don't call athletes "heroes" esp rich athletes. This HERO word has been stretched to serve an athlete's image, for them to be marketable. Their handlers use media outlets to market them for their brand's sake. Real heroes i think dont parade themselves or have handlers market them.
