NBA fans in Cleveland were reportedly more excited Sunday night to see Michael Jordan than LeBron James.
The six-time champion with the Chicago Bulls made an appearance at the NBA’s 75th Anniversary Team ceremony during halftime of the all-star game, and he was greeted by thunderous applause.
People online are acting like this is some huge shock, but it really doesn’t surprise me at all. LeBron James went from being universally loved to being loathed by a large percentage of sports fans.
That’s what happens when you stay silent on the crimes of China and criticize America at the same time. When you start becoming ultra-political, you’re going to turn people off.
Look no further than LeBron James’ all-time stupid tweet about the heroic police officer who stopped a stabbing.
Michael Jordan has gone out of his way to avoid getting involved in political scuffles, and as a result, people all over the spectrum are huge fans.
Add in the fact it was the NBA All-Star Game and not a packed house of just people from Cleveland, and it’s not hard to see how Jordan received a warmer welcome than the Lakers star.
