LeBron James likens ‘goofy’ All-Star votes from players to votes for Donald Trump

Friday January 27th, 2017

The brand-new player vote for the NBA All-Star Game was really wacky. Many players (like Rajon Rondo) voted for themselves, while some voted for their objectively undeserving teammates, friends or even siblings to make it.

It’s been a highly contentious subject, and now LeBron James has said something about it.

James—a vocal supporter of Hillary Clinton leading up to the 2016 Presidential Election—reasoned that we shouldn’t be surprised at these “goofy” votes because of who the American people elected.

We’ll keep you posted on whether or not Trump decides to clap back on this no-championship-having small forward.
