During press conference LeBron James addressed the comments Don Sterling made about not wanting blacks at his game and more. For LeBron, he’s disappointed in the comments and had this looming over his head. He’s in fear of what he should do if the the team owner of Miami Heat made similar comments.
“I don’t know. I kind of waivered back and forth whether I would actually sit out. If our owner would come out and say the things that he said, I would really have to sit down with my teammates, talk to my family because at the end of the day, our family, and our teammates are way more important than that. Basketball is huge, obviously the playoffs have been unbelievable, and I hate the fact that something like this has to come out when the playoffs have been unbelievable and the game of basketball continues to grow, but there is no room for Donald Sterling in our league. There is no room for him.”
He’s also worried about his dear friend, Chris Paul who plays for Clippers.
“You see us all the time, you see our logos, you see our players, and for an owner to come out and say the things that he said, it’s very disrespectful, it’s very appalling and one of my best friends and dear friends plays on his team in Chris Paul and I haven’t had an opportunity to talk to him but I can only imagine what’s going through his head.”
