LeBron James Shades Government For Failing To Get Brittney Griner Released

Lakers star LeBron James has taken aim at the Biden Administration, complaining it hasn’t done enough to get detained WNBA player Brittney Griner released from a Russian prison. James’ comments are part of a trailer for his new show, The Shop: Uninterrupted. In it, the NBA superstar says, “Now, how can she feel like America has her back? I would be feeling like, ‘Do I even want to go back to America?’” The 31-year-old Griner, who plays for the Phoenix Mercury, was arrested in February after she was caught with THC vape cartridges in a Moscow airport. If Griner broke a law in Russia, is it even appropriate for the government to intervene?
