James, who has been famously outspoken on social issues in the past, expressed his sadness at the weekend’s events and made a reference to Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ slogan, appearing to punctuate it with a sense of frustration. The white nationalists openly and verbally aligned themselves with Trump’s campaign rhetoric, with some Charlottesville marchers yelling “Heil Trump” while also parroting antiquated, racist sentiment.

LeBron downplays Griffin's comments about him going to NY .
Where LeBron James will play when the 2017-18 season concludes is currently unclear — LBJ himself may not even know at this point — but that hasn’t stopped others from speculating about it. There are rumors swirling about him joining either the Lakers or Clippers, given that he owns a house in Los Angeles. That would make a ton of sense from that perspective, as well as from the marketing side.But now the NYC rumors are coming into play -- former Cavs GM David Griffin said he expected James to go to NYC instead of LA -- which, of course, would be another attractive destination for James and his family.
