Hornet’s Owner Michael Jordan Responds To President’s Attack of Lebron James


Michael Jordan tries to stay out of politics and the press as much as possible, but after President Trump attacked fellow basketball legend, Lebron James, Jordan released a rare official statement.

Two days ago, the President of the United States issued a scathing insult about journalist Don Lemon and NBA Star Lebron James, while ending his statement with the phrase, “I like Mike” (referring to Michael Jordan);

The tweet seemingly came after the president watched James’ interview last week with CNN’s Don Lemon, where James stated, “We are in a position in America where this race thing has taken over. One, because I believe our president is trying to divide us. He’s kind of used sports to divide us, and that’s something I can’t relate to.”

Yesterday, Charlotte Hornet’s owner and basketball legend Michael Jordan released a brief statement about the tweet, simply saying “I support LJ, He’s doing an amazing job for his community.”

On Monday of this week, Lebron James opened the I Promise School in his hometown of Akron, Ohio to serve low-income and at-risk students.
