Lebron James, who spent 2016 campaigning for Hillary Clinton, has come out and called Ohio voters uneducated and uninformed. He said that people who voted for Trump made a mistake and that it was related to a lack of education about the issues. He then compared Ohio voting for Trump to the Trailblazers drafting Sam Bowie ahead of Michael Jordan in the 1984 NBA draft.
“I don’t think a lot of people was educated,” James said. “And I think that’s one of the biggest problems when it becomes vote time is that people are just not educated on either the individual or what’s going on … I don’t think a lot of people are educated, and they make choices and say things that’s uneducated. Am I saying that the people of Ohio wasn’t educated and some of the people in the other states that voted for him was uneducated? They could have been or they could not have been, but that doesn’t mean it was the right choice.”
“You can go back in the history of time of sports and say the same thing because we keep bringing sports and politics into it, so you could look back at some of the greatest drafts of all-time and say that, ‘Okay, did the Trail Blazers make the right choice when they took Sam Bowie?’ I mean, can we all stand up here and say they should have took Michael Jordan?”
Remember folks, Lebron graduated high school and bounces a ball for a living. He is clearly the most educated and informed athlete out there.
This is coming after a Lebron tweet on Saturday attacking President Trump, tweeting, ‘U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain’t going! So therefore ain’t no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!’
