#FMSportsTalk: Michael Jordan Responds to Trump’s Lebron Comment

MJ “backs”LeBron, but Could He Have Done More?

Donald Trump went Full Trump and tried to discredit the Summer of LeBron with a hateful tweet. “Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon,” the President tweeted. “He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!” Michael Jordan would release a statement via spokesperson saying: “I support LeBron James. He’s doing an amazing job for his community.”

MJ Said Something, But It Wasn’t Enough.

Response to MJ’s statement was divisive at best. Many people were actually glad Jordan said something. Many people, including myself, wanted more. Van Lathan from TMZ and Shannon Sharpe, NFL HOF Tight End and Co-Host of Undisputed with Skip and Shannon on FS1, both shared their feelings on MJ via Twitter and YouTube. Michael Jordan has one of the biggest brands in the world. He was worshiped and loved by many. He is known for delivering big in clutch situations, but with racial and social issues affecting black people Jordan always comes up small. With Lebron building a school in Ohio and Trump’s tweet, a statement by his spokesperson isn’t enough.

 

Jordan went harder at Lavar Ball than Donald Trump.

Jordan went out of his way to verbal attack Lavar Ball after he said he could beat MJ one-on-one in basketball. With his power and influence, Jordan could have given Lebron an alley-oop with a donation, an appearance at the school with Lebron, or some merchandise for students who got good grades. That would be powerful, 2 Black Titans that transcend sports standing up to bigotry and doing great for our people. Jordan could have slam dunked the point home, but he decided to take a weak lay-up.
