The NBA and the greater sports world seems to universally be going after Trump right now for his comments involving LeBron.
The President using his position to go after a random athlete would be mean-spirited if LeBron was just a random star athlete doing his job, but LeBron doesn't seem to qualify. Among other things, LeBron went out of his way to campaign for Hillary at crucial events, he called Ohioans who voted for Trump uneducated, he called the President a bum, and LeBron made numerous disparaging comments about Trump throughout the past couple of years.
Are you not fair game when you inject yourself into the political debate? Is Trump not allowed to defend himself at some point or is LeBron allowed to take unlimited shots at him without Trump having any legitimate opportunity to defend himself? Has anybody in the sports media addressed this point even a little bit? It seems like everybody is just hammering away emotionally.
