I am an old white guy. I support you! the assh..es that defaced your property represent a small but "vocal" minority of people we would all be better off without! I am so sorry that you and your family have to suffer the consequences of their small minded, tasteless and awful behavior.

Beat the Warriors!

Dear Mr. James,

I am also an "old white guy" and I don't follow basketball at all. However, I know of you as you are and have been dominate in your sport for years and one of the best ever, from what I've read about over the years. You are also a pretty great human being, and your recent press response / interview on racism was just 100% class! Really on-spot and true. In elementary school I was part of "forced school busing" from the Supreme Court decision in the early 1970's and ended up in a variety of schools where, I learned at an early age we are all the same, want the same things, had some great friends. Sure, some people are jerks, some you don't like, but just as many are fine, and that is true no matter what group you find yourself in. Anyway it was a great experience for me.

I'm truly horrified at the ignorance and hate that still prevails, and what is happening in our society in this day and age! Just disgusting!!! I'm glad your family is okay and hopefully things will improve.

Dear Mr. James,
I cannot begin to express my deepest sadness at what was written on your property at your home. I felt so compelled to write you and thank you for being such a wonderful role model to ALL children. My son is 19 years old and has loved you and enjoyed watching you play for many years. You are an inspiration to so many people. Your intelligence, determination and class are such excellent examples for all people to try and emulate. I'm sorry that your family had to experience such horrid language and blatant racism. Please know that is NOT representative of how most people see you. I hope your family will be able to move beyond this and rise above it all. My husband and I have raised our son to not look at a person's skin color but to look always at what's in a person's heart. You are an example of what I'd love my son to become. My family and I will pray for you and your family that you may have peace and comfort during this diificult time.
Sincerely, Janet David and David Koutsogiane from the great state of RI

Lebron I am not sure this is a valid page but I will try it and hope this message gets to you. My granddaughter was killed last Sunday. She was obsessed with you. She had your positive quotes all over her bedroom walls. She was an amazing girl that was just beginning her life and tragically she died at 14. With that said, her mother would like you to sign a basketball that we purchased for her memorial so she can keep it to remember Amber's love of basketball and her idol. They live in Coventry and you can contact me through email at bobbiljones@yahoo.com if you could find the time to sign her basketball. We would all be very grateful. I do understand you are out of town but feel free to contact me. Thanks in advance. Bobbi, Amber's Best Grandma, as she called me.

There is no doubt that you guys can beat the Warriors, but you are allowing them to settle into their rhythm. Do not allow them just to bring the ball up court without applying mediocre pressure. This will slow the game down tremendously and it will be to the Cavaliers advantage. When you get the rebound (run) keep the pressure on them on defense, do not settle for jump shots, this will increase your shot percentage, get them in foul trouble and you will shoot foul shots. Also the cavalier(s) are allowing too much space between the man who has the ball when playing defense – “close the gap.” The Cavs have to play as one complete unit on defense, stay in between the man and the ball (see your man and the ball at all times) and each person must take his assignment personally and box out on defense. When the Warriors want to set that high pick and roll, have the man whose person is setting the pick to jump out and double team that three point shooter, and the defensive guy who is closest to the play attempt to pick off that pass to the pick and roller. The other alternative is to have the closest man to step in front of the guy who receiving the pass and take a charging foul. You guys will win game three.

My son noah is the oldest of 4 children. He never asks for much because he has 3 little sisters he trys to help provide for. All he ever really asks for is lebron james shoes and clothing. Hes had it pretty rough but nothing compared to the devistating news of a brain tumor last month. They have diagnosed him with glioma and operating at this point is not an option he is scheduled for chemotherepy so before he gets really sick id love to ask if there are any charities that would help with a pair of lebron james shoes.

Hi Mr. Lebron,
My 14yr old son Aj thinks you are a GOD! He is 6'5 and loves basketball. I played at Marshall University in Huntington, WV between 03' and 06'. He has had a tremendous growth spurt the last couple of months and he is really down because he is not doing so well in basketball and he wants to quit. I won't let him. If you could meet him or even talk to him I know that would give him the courage to never give up, and work at it just a lil harder. I know you are a very busy person. But if by chance you are in the Houston, Tx area he would love the opportunity to talk to you and meet you.

Lebron,
I grew up in Chardon Ohio, graduated in 1998, and moved to Charlotte North Carolina in 2007 looking for a better way of living. Well after 10 years, I've realized the same thing that you did, north east Ohio is home and no matter what that never changes, now I'm just a technician at a car dealership, I don't have your fame or any of that, but I've always respected the way you have conducted yourself on and off the court. I'm glad I wasn't home to witness you leaving, but I fully understood why and never faulted you for it. When you came home and wrote the I'm coming home letter, I was actually on my way to put-in-bay for a weekend trip with friends, and I related so well to it. It's a way of life up there and if you're born with it, then it never leaves you.... so anyway I'm coming home as well in August. Just wanted to share that with you and I hope I can get to some of your games this year.

I wanted a pair of your shoes but my mom couldn't afford them, my mom works at the goodwill and came across a pair of your shoes her supervisor told her to put them on the floor to have my dad buy the next day. The next day my dad went to buy them they were not there. 2 days later they fired my mom for putting them out there even thou the supervisor told her to. I feel bad.

LeBron,
You are one of the best and most exciting players to ever play the game although no one deserves the amount of money that you make just for playing a silly game. Hopefully you are grateful for the capitalist system which allows you to be so financially fortunate. In most other countries you would just be some regular guy who likes to play basketball, but isn’t wealthy because of it. I love people of all races. I believe that we are all created by one God who does not play favorites. President Trump is not a racist; he is just trying to protect this country and its citizens by limiting who can enter it because illegal immigration has gotten out of control. What is sad is that President Obama had a wonderful opportunity to promote equality and the fact that we are all Americans and should never be defined by the color of our skin. Instead President Obama constantly played the race card. He is a typical liberal democrat who continued to oppress his own people so that they would be dependent on government and then in return he would get their vote in exchange for their continued welfare checks. He should have spent a large majority of his time building up the inner cities and providing better education opportunities for them so that they could build self-esteem and self-worth and get out helpless pit of generational welfare. So very sad that President Obama demonstrated that he is the worst kind of racist in selling out his own race in order to remain in power and get their votes. It s funny how I never heard you criticize him...why is that?

I have recently grown immensely in my personal respect for Mr. James I think he is an amazingly hard working individual and an example to a large group of American youth, However it would so greatly appreciated if he could limit his punditry to issues support and encourage the country that has made him (nearly) a billionaire . Mr James please don't be influenced by the ground swell of media misinformation to make your self of no account. Help people learn to think. Luke 16:15

‪@KingJames you've been my favorite player since I was 12 y.o.--I'm now 26--and I've always rooted for you no matter what, and always disregarded what the haters say about going to Miami, or not being clutch, or any of the other BS I've heard about over the years. However, when you make comments about the President 'making hate fashionable again' it really offends and hurts those like me who have been your fans for your entire career/their entire adult life but who also don't happen to share your feelings of contempt towards the President. If you don't like the guy that is 100% your right, but when you start putting out public statements that are just plain false, then you are absolutely the one in the wrong. If you can provide one concrete piece of evidence that supports your claim that Donald Trump is racist, I will gladly admit that I'm wrong here (CNN sources don't count). But I bet once you start looking for any supporting evidence, you'll find that there is nothing, and the entire racism angle against Trump has been nothing but left-wing-media lies from the first day he took office.

Minorities are SO racist. I see it every single day. The media wikl never call out you racist blacks and latinos. Imagine if a white athlete called Obama a bum..... You're a LOSER, Lebron. Most of you black athletes seem racist. I love President Trump. Obama was a terrible president which is WHY Trump won. DEAL WITH IT.You are MILES BEHIND Jordan in terms of skill, smoothness and fundamentals. A 0 year old Hakeem made you oook stiff and unathletic. You are the poster boy for this sad NBA. Your generation is terrible. Nobody even watches the NVA anymore. Jordan owns you.

In case anyone cares- this is what the NFL rule book says;

The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the NFL League Rulebook. It states: 'The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. 'During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition... ...It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.'”

LaBron,

I listened to your comments and read your blurb regarding the vicious white supremacist racist attack on NFL and NBA athletes by the Rouge faux-President of the 39%l Trump. It is a strategic move to bring Sharia law (extreme white nationalist evangelicals) and White Nationalism (fascism) center stage in his perpetual racist rallies, specifically targeting white people. Every week is a different divisive issue and a different attack on a different group or person.

With aplomb and dignity, you demonstrated that African-ancestored athletes have First Amendment rights and can address those rights, especially when their rights are impinged upon by the white national police state murdering innocent Black men/boys/women/girls with impunity...

I ask you now; would this not be "the perfect moment and the fertile ground to build a "third force" political party, galvanizing and mobilizing all your millions of fans and disaffected voters of all walks of life who see the handwriting on the wall as it relates to the direction the neo-liberals, the neo-conservatives, the neo-fascist, and the neo-Nazis are taking the country and global countries?

If the professional athletes can protest a fascist anthem and song that glorifies war on the one and genocide, slavery, ineffable suffering of millions of people around in the name of white supremacy racism; can't we seize this moment to mobilize the masses and take this country into a whole new direction? A direction that will be, once and for all, of, by, and for the people. if all celebrities" across the spectrum, the Oprah's, Magic, Kapernick, Jordan, Denzel, Isaiah Washington...Clooney, DeNiro, Sarandon...and the list goes on and coalesce with Jill Stein, Cornell West, Chris Hughes, Glen Ford (Black Agenda Report)...and countless others who would help/contribute, and leadership in a monumental movement to throw off the coming wave of white fascist annihilation of the masses, deconstruction of Constitutional government, and the installation of an eminent dictatorship. You see how and what Trump thinks about Black people and if he has his way what he will do, which is take us back to the Antebellum, pre-Civil War era.

LaBron, if you came into the Black disenfranchised communities across the nation, creating a platform with other athletes with like minds and do something that has not ever been before; talk to the masses; create rallies for political power; it can be done! If you see the vision that I see as a result of Sunday's protest in the face of the Trump Alabama attack...we could be well on our way to the "real" great society!

Mr. James:
I an a fan of you basketball achievements and read your book. I saw my fist Cavs game this year! Great job working hard and proving the American Dream is available to hard workers! We love you.

Sir, I don't think you understand how much influence you have on our youth as citizens. I'm not sure you know the imoact of your attacks on our President. Sir, YOU of all Americans can lead our youth with respectful encouragement. You can be positive. You are an athelete not a politician. It would be nice to see you become an inspiration in living as you have on the field. It would be great to see you engage in conversations with politicians and not insult our Country. It saddens me to see you stoop so low and be so negative. In your book you describe an ice cream shop you bicycled past as a youth and "the cheeseburger you will never afford". Sir now you can afford so much more. Much more than nearly all humans. We as fans and Ohioans expect more! We want to see our King James act like one. No insults, no negativity, no anti Americanism. My forefathers fought and died to free American slaves. My generation is truly multicultural and I know this is tough to see from some segregated communities. Lebron I am mixed race. I dont see one side or pick teams. Often I hear you say "our community" when you mean only part of us. I see you talking about racism as if it is a one way street. I dont hear you lifting up inner city youth, but degrading their hope by attacking America. Fact is there are only small portions of folks actually racist. Please be more constructive and positive. I see you as a great man who can become a great leader. That will require you to set aside your own bias and to begin trusting those of us who are not like you. We are all unique. Please stop casting our President as the enemy. Just as it is an NBA Captain's job to lead his team to respect team colors traditions and pregame procedures which honor America, it is President Trump's job to lead all citizens to honor the flag and Anthem briefly before games. Be positive! Stop casting a guy who is doing his job as your enemy. He is your neighbor and Brother under God. Choose only words and actions that inspire hope and enthusiasm for the American dream you have achieved, and which many of us Privileged folks have yet to attain.

Love,
Doug

Dear Lebron. I write this as a die hard NBA fan. I am so surprised and disappointed by your recent praise of Eminems Anti-Trump Rap. As we all know Eminem has a history of violent, hating, homophobic, sexist lyrics. Virtues that are usually condemned by the left and liberals. Of course, Eminem has become so irrelevant, attacking the President will give him some notoriety especially in the arena of the other Trump haters. However, this clearly shows that their collective hatred, bigotry and prejudice towards President Trump has taken away their moral compass. So sad and pathetic you took part in this. Next they will be praising Harvey Weinstein!
