Lebron James Denies Saying He Would Boycott Next Season If Donald Sterling Remained LA Clippers' Owner

(AllHipHop News) Well, that public display of capitalistic defiance for social change sure ended quickly. A day after footage surfaced of the Vice President of the Players Association claiming Lebron James would boycott next season if Donald Sterling remained an NBA owner, Lebron James himself denies the reports.

Last night (May 14th), before Lebron James and the Miami Heat eliminated the Brooklyn Nets from the NBA Playoffs, James spoke with ESPN about the statements made by NBA players union vice president Roger Mason Jr. on Jim Rome on Showtime:

Roger comes in here, we speak about issues. I believe that issue came up but, as a team, we never discussed it. Roger is a great guy and I don’t have a problem with him at all.

Roger Mason Jr addressed his comments on his personal Twitter account, admitting to being unclear on the boycott news:

  • Brooklyn Stoop

    when we look back at this donald sterling thing years from now
    we will realized we dropped the ball

  • Yup, these athletes are not stupid they have mouths to feed, it’s you all who are acting like Donald Sterling’s comment is going to make or break your account.

    • DJ7

      Yet you were up in arms because 50 Cent didn’t have anything to say….do yourself a favor and put yourself in time out….

      • No, I was speaking the truth….If those same basketball players are not walking off and banning together, then it goes to show that white people do control the world that we live in because they use their money wisely…50 cent is using his money and star power to destroy his own kind…Which goes back to Sterling’s comment, black people live and think a certain way and you can’t blame them for wanting to draw the line…Black folks can draw the line in a way that other races respect them better, but they are too busy beefing, fighting and tearing each other down.

  • Mack

    I’m betting that nobody’s gonna take action when it counts. All talk as usual.

  • Live Well

    Roger Mason Jr. showing his hand too early.

    • Dubz

      Naw, I bet Lebron said that. In fact I believe there are a few people that are genuinely mad about Sterlings comment….but these high paid athletes are not going to do anything about it. Make a few comments during the month it happened, make a couple tweets and NBA Cares commercial and move on from it.

      • Live Well

        I think he said it too but I think Mason wasn’t supposed to go public with it. I agree with you though, most athletes, owners, coaches, etc. aren’t as mad as they claim to be. I think Lebron is serious though.

  • keepitswizzy

    how come whenever a white person does something racist people dwell on it forever but when a black person says some racist shit its ok?

    • John Q. Public

      u gunna needa offer an example for the “black person saying racist shit”

      • keepitswizzy

        lol….u must be black

      • Ipullcards

        And u must have a death wish ignorant dumb fux

      • keepitswizzy

        lmao….all im sayin is its ok for blacks to be racist ALL THE TIME but not for whites…im far from a racist im just callin it how i see lol

      • Ipullcards

        Your vision is gravely impaired

      • keepitswizzy

        yep …. must be

      • Ipullcards

        Anyone can be a tough talker/racists behind a screen u just confirmed our suspicions.

    • DJ7

      If you have to ask that dumb ass question then you are part of the problem.

      • keepitswizzy

        lmao ok…u dumb fucks feel like the white man owes u…thats the real problem

      • DJ7

        To the contrary grasshopper…he owes it to himself to stop perpetuating myths of superiority…truth is light…lighten up!!!

    • Ipullcards

      Dumb arse let me hang your grandfather from a tree and cut his dick off and his ears fingers and toes as souvenirs than maybe u can get some lead way. Dumb arse

  • John Q. Public

    I doubt Mason just made the whole thing up while being interviewed on TV…

    Sounds like Lebron musta been talkin large in private and didn’t expect Mason to tell the world. Lebron wasn’t ready

    • Ipullcards

      That leads me to believe that lebron is a coward like most black men! Shoot each other over nothing but a white man treats us like slaves and “we” aren’t gunna boycott? At the very least that should happen. Smh how far down we’ve slipped on the human totem pole

      • Sean Taylor

        What’s this “we” stuff. You aren’t making millions. At the end of the day coming from where most players came from, they aren’t giving up their millions just to try and prove a point.

  • Dubz

    Of course he back track…It was the flavor of the month type shit. “Ohhhhhhhh Donald Sterling is a racist, I must take a stand on this” The NBA been knew he was racist once it came to light via a tape everybody wants to be up in arms. No ones boycotting the NBA…truth be told I doubt the will make him sale the team. Its just something that will make them look good now.

    • Ipullcards

      Cosign that. Smh at these house negroes! LBJ no morals! Stand for nothing!

      • Brick Soulja

        Not enough black people are going to financially support the black players. 90% of the paying fan base is non black.

      • Ipullcards

        What does that have to do with a bunch of millionaires who are black taking a stand? Who needs to support rich ppl? that’s the reason y they’re playing at the highest level so they can support themselves. They’re other things more important than money and black ppl know that it’s a moral thing! Nothing to so with money. If money’s your bottom line than Donald sterling will be team owner next year. And those are your opinions not facts

      • Brick Soulja

        Correct those are just my opinions, I can admit that with no malice behind it. The bottom line is the bottom line, so those young men are not going to boycott the league and the Sterling family will continue owning the Clippers long past Lebron’s playing career. Is it fair? To me it’s not fair, but I’m just one voice.

      • Ipullcards

        That I can agree with.. Honestly that’s how I feel about the situation I’m hoping that we are wrong, but I don’t see how!

      • Brick Soulja

        All we can do is wait and hope.

  • RapItUp

    I knew he wasn’t ready for that action.. I hope one of those clippers players are, at least!

    • Brick Soulja

      The black players know that the majority of their white fans will turn on them and the black fans don’t have any money.

      • RapItUp

        I mean.. if my white fans turned on me given the circumstances.. I would just have to chalk it up. Don’t these guys stand for anything? Sure, I’m not staring tens of millions of dollars in the face. But how can you go out there and be a new slave for this guy, willingly?? One would think, a humane person, white, black, purple, whatever, would understand the black players dilemma. If not, to hell w/ ’em!

      • Brick Soulja

        You’re definitely right and I agree with you, however, these young men are just one wrong investment away from bankruptcy, so they have to go along to get along.

      • RapItUp

        Two words: Variable Annuity!! Hell, w/ the cash these guys are making.. a fixed one wouldn’t be bad either! Better get on their WingStop game like big Ricky! Lol!

      • Sean Taylor

        Yeah annuity period….

      • Brick Soulja

        These cats don’t wanna hear about living off of interest income though.

      • RapItUp

        Come on man.. And to think, white people don’t even floss like that (generally speaking) AND they got the interest compounding.. We gotta get it together. Even the bench warmers should live a comfy life post retirement

      • Brick Soulja

        Brother, you’re speaking the gospel, however, you’re preaching to the choir. I agree with you 100% though.

      • RapItUp

        My fault bruh, I just get excited hearing from these enlightened brothers on the board.. Can you imagine the comments on this same article on Fox’s website? Hell, even CNN is getting out of hand lately. I have to stop myself from responding often

      • Brick Soulja

        Man, I have to stop myself sometimes as well. Keep hope alive.

      • Sean Taylor

        “Don’t these guys stand for anything?”

        “But how can you go out there and be a new slave for this guy, willingly??”

        You already answered your own questions, it’s all about the money. They have to support their affluent lifestyle.

        “Sure, I’m not staring tens of millions of dollars in the face.”

      • RapItUp

        Well.. Damn.. Looks like Mack and Brooklyn Stoop were right below.. Don’t get many chances like this to set an example. Guess we’ll just blow this one

      • I agree, but Black people do have money they just don’t support. #justsaying

      • Brick Soulja

        True, we don’t support one another. However, I don’t just want to support someone just because they’re black though. I want to support the best product and customer service. I like whomever likes me back…………..simple as that.

      • And guess what the best product and service usually comes from non-blacks…Go to a black establishment and see how half-assed their customer service and products are…White folks may not make stuff on their own, but they make sure you walk out smiling…Black businesses always have some chicken-head at the front counter on her cell phone giving you attitude…..lol

      • Brick Soulja

        I would have to agree with you for the most part.

      • God Body

        yeah, just like white people don’t like hiphop. They never buy it they’re not interested in it at all. Please? It’s this type of non-pride and non belief in ourselves that perpetuates the bs. I’m willing to wager that white fans will follow whatever they perceive to be the best, regardless of how racist they may feel initially.

      • Brick Soulja

        Ain’t nothing wrong white fans in Hip Hop nor in the NBA. However, if a hard critical stance is taken against white people, it wouldn’t make any sense for them to support that stance. It’s shouldn’t even be about race separation, it should be about working past problems and fixing them. Has Donald Sterling ever killed any black people or had them killed? If not then I feel like he should be given a chance to correct his wrong, if he’s able to do so. Everyone makes mistakes in life, but only a chosen few improve in a positive way from them.

  • Brick Soulja

    Lebron and all of the black players in the NBA wouldn’t know how to start thier own league. Even though they have a net worth of 2 billion dollars combined, they wouldn’t be able to form a league. If they had any courage, they would enlist every black billionaire and multimillionaire to start their own league. Let the Donald Sterlings of the world have the NBA full of non blacks. However, that’s where the problem lies, black fans don’t have the discretionary cash to even support a league.

    • TruthSerum

      It’s amazing how far america has come, 50 years ago we wanted to de-segregate everything and now your calling for a return to segregation.

      While we’re at it maybe we should separate the water fountains again….

      ….Or, on second thought, maybe we should just not let a few bad apples set us back to the 1950’s

      • Brick Soulja

        We should only support and cater to those who do the same for us. Fair enough?

      • And that is still the white man..White folks pretend to support and cater and on the low they hate…But your own black folks just don’t support and don’t cater to their own kind…It kills a black person to give his hard earned money to another black man, to see that person get more money. #justsaying

      • Brick Soulja

        It hit it right on the nail!!

    • Son Dollars

      Never happen the they would be letting niggaz like me in the NBA Id be the only nigga in the NBA like dunking on white boys like ugh ugh westside nigga huh get off me white boy… busta rhymes voice!

    • Let’s be real, black people fight and degrade themselves on the regular basis…Tell a black man to start is own business and he will give you 10 excuses…Tell a black man to run a scam and they are all ears. #justsaying

      • God Body

        So your on here to reaffirm our failings. Do you have a solution or are you cool with how thing are? #justasking

      • bisolabliss

        …even thinking of where to start to repair our minds gives me mind-numbing migraines most times considering the many obstacles that’s been erected over time.

        The ‘programming’ has taken a deep seeded root in ‘us’, it scares me sh1tless where we are headed as a people. Our ‘economical survival’ is starting to look like the bane of our very existence.

      • God Body

        I just started typing my solution and straight away my brain got numb. This is what they’re depending on. BUT I can’t accept things the way they are. I’d rather die striving for something better than to live accepting less than what I’m worth.

      • Yes, black folks need to know how they act and how the world see’s them…If they are smart they would finally step up and change their ways, instead of acting like it’s not true.

      • bisolabliss

        …and do you think this behaviour just happened overnight?

        Why do you think buffoonery and coonery by Black folks are readily supported and broadcasted by White-owned media establishments?

        What exactly did you think was the whole idea behind John Edgar Hoover’s COINTELPRO program?

        What you see transpiring right before you eyes is years of co-ordinated and concentrated efforts by the White power structure to subjugate the Black man – in another language, it would be called ‘Social Conditioning’.

    Nigga play ball like the good white man pay you 2 do… 99% of the NBA owners feel just like Donald Sterling…Newsflash!!!

    • Yup, and most of the players on the NBA and other sports teams are aware of the racism and they will still work for them anyway…It’s something about black people that shows a lack of leadership…Honestly black folks are not build like that….With all the millions and billions that these black celebs have they would never put it all together and form an empire…Black folks hate to work together, they love to have their own and look down at other blacks who are less fortunate.

      • HATER PROOF

        hell i think most white bosses in america are racist im still going to work tommarow….and most ppl are too…..hell even white supervisors

    • God Body

      So now that it’s come to a head and it’s current public discussion, whats your solution? Continue with the same disrespect or change how things are done?

  • Son Dollars

    Hell… I feel like Donald Sterling!!!

  • AlexYouOC

    All talk…. It’s easy for niggas to talk about making a change, but how many would actually do da shit they talk about/imply

    • I would, because especially in this day and age with social media and shock value…If the clippers chose not to play on the day of the game, it would have been the biggest thing ever, the game would have been cancelled, cameras would have been shut off, and then just on the surprise and embarrassment alone would have brought a huge difference to not just the NBA but to the world…But those black players don’t look at it like that…They need that money to go throw it all away in the strip clubs. #justsaying

    To all the people down talking and criticizing others for stating these guys are punks for not selling out and going back to work after your boss was confirmed heard stating you were his trick pony, y’all trippin.

    If y’all take notice, we’re not talking about 92% of the owners. We’re talking about the one that said some super out of pocket shit. Do the other owners feel the same way as Sterling? Possible. Likely, even. Did we hear audio of the other owners saying such things? Ok then. Right now, heat’s on Sterling. And the Clippers.. And in a way, Lebron too!

    But like I said below, he ain’t built like that

  • grownassmanchi

    Disappointed these young brothers on the Clippers had a chance to make history and do what no others had done before and shut the NBA down during the middle of their biggest profit making part of the season, instead they settled for a pay-check, a half ass attempt at saving face by turning their practice jerseys inside out(hahaha), and still got knocked out the playoffs. Just shows how far the black man has become pussified throughout the generations. Money > Pride/self-respect

    • Ryan Cole

      That’s what I’ve been saying since this all started.

      • God Body

        Disappointing to see they still don’t know their worth. I don’t want my kids to learn how to capitulate for a pay check. More is at stake here than their paycheck. They’re in a position to lead but instead they worry about paychecks. self-respect > money (this should be a t-shirt).

      • Ryan Cole

        We’ll see what happens during the off-season. If Clippers players start demanding trades and releases, and if any free agents go there. If nothing changes from the players, Sterling might as well get reinstated.

  • Ryan Cole

    LeBron had no reason to sit out, even if he did make that statement. This isn’t his fight. This is on the Clippers organization. And when Sterling takes the league to court, it’s gonna be a long process.

  • Jimbo Jones

    James better not forget, he is still working on the white mans plantation. Stupid boon.

  • bisolabliss

    Economical survival; the bane of the Black race.
