LeBron James simply unloaded on the NBA … saying the league bungled Phoenix Suns proprietor Robert Sarver‘s suspension — calling it straight up “incorrect.”

“I don’t want to clarify why,” he continued. “Y’all learn the tales and determine for your self. I mentioned it earlier than and I’m gonna say it once more, there isn’t a place on this league for that form of conduct.”
As we reported, following an NBA investigation, league officers mentioned Sarver did, in truth, use the n-word on a number of events within the office. In addition they mentioned they discovered he made inappropriate feedback about feminine staff, and didn’t deal with them equally. Investigators added that Sarver was inappropriate bodily towards male staff as properly.
They did be aware of their findings that Sarver’s use of the n-word was not motivated by racial hate or prejudice.
As punishment for all of it, the league introduced on Tuesday it was hitting Sarver with a one-season ban … and fining him $10 million — issues LeBron clearly believes have been nowhere close to harsh sufficient.
“I really like this league and I deeply respect our management,” LeBron mentioned. “However this isn’t proper. There isn’t a place for misogyny, sexism, and racism in any work place. Don’t matter if you happen to personal the workforce or play for the workforce. We maintain our league up for instance of our values and this aint it.”
