LeBron James is no stranger to controversy. This might be one of the reasons why he is considered the NBA’s “biggest whiner.” He had quite a message to deliver on Wednesday, but he used his friend Drake’s words to paint the picture.

On June 16th, King James fired off shots at the NBA for not allowing their players ample time to rest. He said that is what caused so many devastating injuries during the 2020-2021 season. This sentiment was shared by some, but he might have received some pushback.

On the 22nd, he fired off another tweet, this time letting his good friend Drake do the talking. While using a bar from Drake’s “30 For 30 Freestyle,” LeBron sent out a tweet that many viewed as an answer to pushback he received, possibly for those comments, from NBA higher-ups.

Never thought I’d be talkin’ from this perspective But I’m not really sure what else you expected When the higher-ups have all come together as a collective With conspiracies to end my run and send me a message.

Drake and Michael B Jordan are both good friends with LeBron. They were actually at that big party that King James attended, one that got him heat from fans for not getting punished by the NBA for attending.

LeBron James is smart enough to know how to use his social media to make a point. He also knows that sometimes a good point can be made without directly calling anyone out specifically. That is what happened in this situation. We’ll have to wait and see if there are any more tweets in this same vein.
