LeBron James once considered himself a Cowboys fan for life but that all changed recently.
During an Instagram Live session with Maverick Carter, James was asked about his loyalty to “America’s Team.”
James told Carter that he no longer supports the Cowboys because of how they handled players protesting during the national anthem:
ames told Carter that he’s out on the Cowboys because of how they handled players protesting during the national anthem.
“I had to sit down on the Cowboys man,” James said. “It’s just things that were going on when guys were kneeling and guys were having the freedom of speech and wanted to do it in a very peaceful manner. A lot of people in they 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.’ I just didn’t think that was appropriate.”
James mentions that he’s still a fan of Micah Parson, Ezekiel Elliott, Trevon Diggs, CeeDee Lamb and other Cowboys’ players but for now he’s ‘all-in’ on being a Browns fan.. which is odd considering the Browns employ Deshaun Watson but hey, whatever makes you happy, right?
