LeBron James attended a big party with Drake and Michael B Jordan and put the Lakers’ NBA Playoffs run at risk. They still ended up losing that opening game to the Suns, 90-99, and LeBron took a tumble to the court in the process. He might be serious about that loss, but he’s not about answering COVID-19 questions right now.

King James didn’t have much to say when asked about attending that party and risking a 10 to 14 day quarantine and/or suspension. The league didn’t do anything to him, but Charles Barkley chastised that decision in a big way.

Lakers reporter Kyle Goon asked James if he had been vaccinated, but the star baller just didn’t answer. He only chuckled a bit before saying, “It’s not a big deal.”

Stephen A Smith responded to this in a big way. He went off about LeBron James shaking off the vaccine question on First Take. The analyst said that LeBron James should be ashamed of himself for not taking a leadership role with this situation. Many others have stepped up, but King James declined.

He also gave LeBron a stern talking to about how this could have been a great message to the Black community. Sadly, LeBron shook off the vaccine question like it was nothing.

You can find Goon’s notes on LeBron James and Stephen Smith’s comments on First Take below.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
