LeBron James came out in 2016 to support Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.

Since Trump’s victory, James has mouthed off to the president numerous times – once referring to POTUS as a “bum.”

In his new book, NBA coaching legend Pat Riley shreds LeBron to pieces – and it’s pretty brutal.

Check this out, from Western Journal:

When LeBron James made “The Decision” to take his talents to South Beach and join the Miami Heat in 2010, it was to play with perennial all-stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

But it appears he was also hoping to play for a coaching legend — Pat Riley.

According to a new book called “The Soul of Basketball: The Epic Showdown Between LeBron, Kobe, Doc, and Dirk That Saved the NBA” by Ian Thomsen, James was dropping hints that he wanted the Hall of Famer, Riley, to come out of retirement — again — and coach the Heat.


After the Heat got off to a 9-8 start in 2010, James had a conversation with Riley where he inquired about whether Riley ever considered returning to coaching.


“And I remember LeBron looking at me and he said, ‘Don’t you ever get the itch?’” said Riley.


Riley gave James a blunt response. “No I don’t have the itch,” he said.

And there it is. LeBron is a coach killer.

Not exactly something to paste onto the resume.

On James’ support of Hillary, via Chicago Tribune:

“I support Hillary because she will build on the legacy of my good friend, President Barack Obama,” James wrote. “I believe in what President Obama has done for our country and support her commitment to continuing that legacy.”


Calling Clinton “a champion for children and their futures,” James looked back to his own impoverished childhood in his essay, and he emphasized his efforts to improve the lives of young people in his hometown. The LeBron James Family Foundation helps children, and some of their parents, reach academic goals, with the promise of a scholarship to the University of Akron for as many as 2,300 at-risk kids.


“I am not a politician, I don’t know everything it will take finally to end the violence,” James said in his essay. “But I do know we need a president who brings us together and keeps us unified. Policies and ideas that divide us more are not the solution. We must all stand together – no matter where we are from or the color of our skin. And Hillary is running on the message of hope and unity that we need.”

James says Trump is using sports to divide Americans.

LeBron James thinks President Trump is using athletics, and athletes, to split up the country. And he’s rejecting the premise like an opponent’s ill-advised layup.

“What I’ve noticed over the past few months,” James shared with CNN’s Don Lemon during a sit-down interview on Monday. “(Is) he’s kinda used sports to kinda divide us, and that’s something that I can’t relate to.”

Referencing Colin Kaepernick, whose kneeling protests during the pre-game national anthem launched an NFL movement, and more recently, Stephen Curry, who honored his promise of skipping a visit to Donald Trump’s White House, James bemoaned a myriad of instances in which Trump has twisted peaceful displays of dissent into an indictment of a decaying American value system.

If Trump uses sports to divide Americans, wouldn’t going to a team executive to suggest a coach be replaced be dividing a team?
