LeBron James Rips Reporters Apart Regarding Jerry Jones Photo Over Kyrie Irving

In a recent interview after the Lakers’ win, LeBron James checks reporters on being silent about the controversial photo circulating of Cowboys team owner Jerry Jones. The image appears white students, including Jones preventing black students from entering an Arkansas school.

He recognized that reporters are “quick to ask us questions” regarding fellow basketball player Kyrie Irving’s issues. Appearing insulted and annoyed, James says, “I got one question for you guys before you guys leave.” He continued, “I was thinking when I was on my way over here, I was wondering why I haven’t gotten a question from you guys about the Jerry Jones photo.”

“When the Kyrie thing was going on, you guys were quick to ask us questions about that,” James said. Continuing, “When I watch Kyrie talk and he says, ‘I know who I am, but I want to keep the same energy when we’re talking about my people and the things that we’ve been through,’ and that Jerry Jones photo is one of those moments that our people, Black people, have been through in America.”

“And I feel like as a Black man, as a Black athlete, as someone with power and a platform, when we do something wrong, or something that people don’t agree with, it’s on every single tabloid, every single news coverage, it’s on the bottom ticker. It’s asked about every single day.”

Jones hasn’t received disciplinary actions from the NFL. He’s claiming he was viewing but not participating in the event taking place in the photo.
