Gordon Monson: LeBron James has really embarrassed himself

He can have his opinions, and he can share them. We should be glad he does because then we know what he’s really about, what’s important to him. He is one of the most famous people on the planet, after all.

Democracy in Hong Kong, though, and China’s threat to it does not fit into that category. Why? Could it have anything to do with his business interests in China, his shoe sales, his standing there from which he profits?

There’s no spinning LeBron’s recent comments about the China-Hong Kong issue and Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey’s call for folks to stand for freedom.
