After the Los Angeles Lakers‘ win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Nov. 30, LeBron James reversed the roles on the media. During the post-game press conference, James took control. He called out what he considered to be a “double standard” on what reporters asked his opinion on.
The double standard James addressed is the dismissal of an old photo of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, verses the media frenzy surrounding Booklyn Nets player Kyrie Irving.
@SpectrumSN shared a clip of the 37-year-old player calling the media to the carpet.
“I got one question for you guys before you guys leave,” James began.
“I was thinking when I was on my way over here, I was wondering why I haven’t gotten a question from you guys about the Jerry Jones photo. But when the Kyrie thing was going on, you guys were quick to ask us questions about that.”
As a reporter attempted to cut in, James asked him to “hold on” so he could continue.
“When I watch Kyrie talk and he says, ‘I know who I am.’ But I want to keep the same energy when we’re talking about my people and the things that we’ve been through.”
