Instead of listening to a plethora of so-called ‘experts’ espouse their interpretation of the actions by LeBron James, you would be much better off reading the thoughts of a former NBA player who was once “black-balled” out of the association because of his “activistism”:
”Gilbert’s an idiot, and you can quote me,” Walker said. ”I’m retired, 70 years old and can’t nobody bother me for speaking my mind. Who’s going to want to come play for Cleveland now that LeBron is gone? But I can see players wanting to come play with LeBron, Wade and Bosh because they’ll have a great chance to win a ring.
”Gilbert ought to be grateful, if anything, because for seven years LeBron was the team’s cash cow. He made a lot of money for the team and for the city. I can see how Gilbert can be hurt and disappointed. But I don’t like the way he and so many other people in the media and elsewhere are ripping LeBron. This kid is the victim of a high-tech lynching. You wouldn’t believe the hate I’m hearing on talk radio out here in Los Angeles. I’m really [ticked] off.
Kudos to Mr. Walker for speaking his mind.
