A Cincinnati, Ohio bar owner is taking drastic measures against the NBA by announcing he won’t be showing any NBA games at his establishment as long as LeBron James is in the league.
“If anyone wants to watch an NBA game, don’t come to Linnie’s Pub,” Jay Linneman, owner of Cincinnati’s Linne’s Pub, wrote on Facebook.
“We will not air them until Lebron James has been expelled from the NBA.”
Linneman added that he believes basketball players “just need to play the game and that’s it” and “their opinion doesn’t really matter.”
The Lakers superstar saw the post and fired right back at them:
“Aww Damn! I was headed there to watch our game tonight and have a drink! Welp.”
James has been under heavy fire after he tweeted and then deleted a post appearing to threaten a police officer who shot and killed a 16-year-old girl in Ohio as she attempted to stab another person.
James later attempted to clarify the post by saying, “I’m so damn tired of seeing Black people killed by police. I took the tweet down because its being used to create more hate -This isn’t about one officer it’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism. I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY.”
