LeBron James ‘sweats silly stuff,’ says Michelle Beadle
LeBron James is one of the most famous athletes in the world, but the LA Lakers star often finds himself under the gaze of other famous people. This led Michelle Beadle to call him out for it.
After recently receiving a potshot from former US President Donald Trump, James is now taking snaps from Beadle, a former ESPN broadcaster.
James and Beadle have a history of trouble. This led Beadle to comment about her on “The Sessions with Renee Paquette” podcast recently:
“He was super petty, and he was trying to have some kind of effect, whether it was small or whatever, like, just an effect. It’s almost, like, showing off your power, I guess, and look , no one is taking that away.”
Beadle thinks James has no reason to be petty, as he is one of the most powerful men in the world and has no reason to care about criticism.
“I’ll tell you, he’s one of the most powerful people in the whole world, but that’s never been questioned, that’s why you have to ask yourself: when you have that much power and you are such a big entity, who cares what any of us say, honestly?” said Beadle.
Yet James often addresses critics individually or in groups.
While James often leaves to address his detractors for commentary or his performances, Beadle believes his words to ESPN have led him to do more.
LeBron James and Michelle Beadle’s biggest problem
Michelle Beadle and LeBron James first got into trouble during his time at ESPN. She talked about it during her podcast appearance.
“I laughed at a decision, and I was one of the millions who did, and I remember I got a DM, ‘Why are you mean to me on TV? ?” Beadle said. “And I sort of laughed about it, didn’t think about it.”
James’ direct message to Beadle about his comments doesn’t seem meaningful, but it matches what Beadle thinks of the Lakers star.
“I think he’s just a very successful, wealthy man still sweating stupid things,” Beadle said.
Beadle claims things got worse when she said James tried to get her fired from ESPN.
James being one of the best athletes in the world, any attempt to have a top broadcaster fired for his comments is a big deal. Also, if true, it’s a mean-spirited response to some criticism.
