WATCH: Rittenhouse Slam Dunks On LeBron


I don’t want to say that LeBron James is an evil person.

Do I like him? No, I think he is an overpaid and overhyped cry-baby, and his predecessors were head and shoulders above him, but like most people he is ignorant—not evil, just ignorant.

The comments he made during the Rittenhouse trial showcase a need to be popular, and a need for him to comment on something he clearly knew nothing about.

LeBron James likely didn’t watch a single minute of the Rittenhouse trial—unless those clips came from CNN, MSNBC, or CBS, and this highlights a broader problem in our society….

LeBron James was far from alone in this. He exhibited behavior that all of us, myself included, have at some point in our lives exhibited, and it has to stop.

Unless one has actually taken the time to study or investigate something thoroughly, they really have no place commenting on it.

LeBron committed the cardinal error that is all too common today by saying what he said about Kyle Rittenhouse.

In short, the man spoke without thinking, and he did it because he wanted to look ‘cool’ in front of other people. How many of us have done this?

Before we criticize him we should seek to learn from him and not repeat his error, we all have to take the plank out of our own eye, before pointing out the sawdust in another’s eye.

This may be an unpopular statement, but it’s true.

If we don’t like what LeBron said, and we have every reason not to, we must seek to not be like LeBron. It isn’t enough to simply call him out.

That being said, Kyle Rittenhouse has every right and reason to say what he says about LeBron during this interview:

Here is the exact clip:

Washington Examiner showcased Rittenhouse’s comments:

“I was a Lakers fan too before he said that. I was really pissed off when he said that because I liked LeBron, and then I’m like, you know, ‘F*** you, LeBron,'” Rittenhouse said.


The Daily Wire reported that Kyle was actually willing to sit down and talk to LeBron James:

“[Kyle] is an empathetic and caring young man.”

“And to LeBron, I would just say, he should be paying more attention to the Lakers,” slammed Hancock.

“But, if he would like to have a sit-down at some point in time, I’m sure him and Kyle can talk about how we can change and fix the system that allows prosecutors to do what they’re doing to Kyle right now,” he offered. “It’s abhorrent.”
