LeBron James has a healthy access to haters at any given point of time. One of the GOATs of NBA, James has no lack of controversy as well, and now UFC’s Colby Covington has stepped forward to add fuel to the fire.

Covington even went after the basketball player after James was under fire for his politically charged comments based on BLM. After Covington made strides against Tyren Woodley, he claimed that if LeBron James crossed paths with him, he’d give him the goods.

As Covington sat down with DailyWire’s Joe Morgan, Covington kept his tirade against James going. He upped it a notch by claiming that James is just a “chinese puppet master.”

Just a big hypocrite. He talks about his two biggest things he loves to talk about equality and justice. Where’s the equality of employing women in Chinese sweatshops to make your merchandise for millions for millions of dollars while they’re making pennies? Where’s the equality in that? Where’s the justice in critiquing the greatest country on God’s green Earth America but not talking about Hong Kong, not talking about the Uyghurs in China? He stays silent on everything in China because he’s a Chinese puppet master.

While James is incredibly busy with the Lakers in order to rebuild the roster so that they can secure the next season, he probably doesn’t know if Covington has said anything against him. However, that won’t stop Covington, as he is likely to keep coming after the Space Jam 2 actor.
