Colby Covington is back reigniting a one-sided beef that he has with LeBron James.
Covington, who has spoken out about James on many different occasions, did more of the same during a recent podcast appearance where he called out the Lakers superstar for putting targets on the backs of police officers.
“That’s why I laugh at LeBron James,” Covington said. “Dude — you’re talking s—. You’re putting targets on police officers’ backs, but then you’re using police security for your family.”
LeBron James has been open with how he feels regarding police brutality, tweeting the words “You’re next #accountability,” in response to the death of a 16-year-old teenager last year. He eventually deleted his tweet when more information came out.
Right before his recent fight with Jorge Masvidal, Covington called James a woke spineless coward.
“I wanna send a big thank you to all the real heroes and celebrities in this country. Not that woke, spineless coward like LeBron James. I’m talking about our heroes – law enforcement, military, our first respondents – God bless you all.”
James seems to be unfazed and unbothered and has never responded back to Covington. He basically treats him like he does Skip Bayless.
The LA Lakers are 10th in the Western Conference after their recent loss against the New Orleans Pelicans despite picking up a 23-point lead in the game. There’s still 8 games left in the regular season for them to try and right the ship.
