        LB is taking about the media and fans treating players bad for forcing a trade, but calling it "business" when the front office trades a player. It's "business" in both situations.

                            Does the NBA have a problem? The NBA trade deadline and allstar picks were bigger stories than the super bowl. The NBA is doing great.

                                                    The public's views are shaped by the media and the media (Stephen A. , Skip Bayless, Doug Gott., Jalen Rose, etc) are essentially employees of ownership via the networks. There job is to present owners in a more favorable light and if need be disparage the players.

                                                      Stephen A agrees with anything Lebron says since Lebron banned him from the cool parties a few years ago. Trying to get back on his good side.

                                                        is Jalen stupid. At every job we know we can get fire at anytime, but we can also quit at anytime. As the manager has the right to fire you at anytime you also have the right to quit anytime. Player should have more right and freedom. management can ship me anywhere they want, at anytime, but if I want to go somewhere at my time it is a problem. I call that a modern slavery mentality

                                                          What Lebron really wants to say is that when a player demands a trade out of a team, he should not be called selfish. Because that's what happened to AD. Since we accept as a fan that when players get traded, it is all business, Lebron wants to change the narrative that when players like AD demand a trade, it will be considered as business. Call a spade a spade, he said. But the fact of the matter is that, even if owners and players are partners, the owners do more business decisions that affect not just the player, but his team, his staff, his business partners, and his fan base. While Lebron wants to call demanding a trade a business act by the player, it only serves himself. The partnership that owners and players get are bound by the CBA and the contracts they sign and should honor. The narrative should not be part of that and should not be changed. Lebron just wants what he wants for his own agenda, which makes him selfish.

                                                            Lebron is like, if these GM’s keep trading players like change, then the players themselves might as well do the trading too, enter Anthony Davis. Bron is just ahead of his time with these moves, they hate him now but they’ll revere him later, when he’s gone/done.

                                                              Him complaining about the teams is hypocritical.

                                                              They pay his salary. These athletes never had a job before, they dont realize they shouldn't bite the hand that feeds.

                                                                  2. If you are a FREE-AGENT, then do whatever you want. That is your right as a player. Teams got no right to blame you.

                                                                  AD is NOT A FREE AGENT. He threw his team under the bus with this whole drama to squeeze the Pelicans. 2 wrongs don't make a right. LBJ might be a great basketball player, but boy does he live in a bubble. All the nonsensical comparisons too about "slavery"... damn.
