They Called Him “King James” in the Basketball World
Too bad his basketball moniker does not apply to his off-court activities. Having played organized basketball until age 55, we, too, admired the court prowess of “King James,” as we did of Michael Jordan before him.
In the past two or three decades, however, we have lost interest not only in watching the pros in the NBA (never was a big fan—only rarely watched all the prancing prima donnas in the pros), but even of the top college programs.
For example, when Coach K and Duke went to recruiting the “one and done” players some years ago, we gave up on them as well. Now we watch zero basketball, and we don’t miss it at all.
We take no glee in reporting that, in our opinion, LeBron’s unwise decision on vaxxing has led to a family heart break (literally), as reported in this story in Zero Hedge.

QUOTE: Another day, another 18-year-old athlete in peak physical condition suddenly collapsing.
On Monday [July 24th], Bronny James, the eldest son of LA Lakers star LeBron James, suffered a heart attack during practice at USC. James was rushed to the ICU, and is now in stable condition, ESPN reports.
“Yesterday while practicing Bronny James suffered a cardiac arrest,” said a James family spokesperson in a statement. “Medical staff was able to treat Bronny and take him to the hospital. He is now in stable condition and no longer in ICU. We ask for respect and privacy for the James family and we will update media when there is more information.
“LeBron and Savannah wish to publicly send their deepest thanks and appreciation to the USC medical and athletic staff for their incredible work and dedication to the safety of their athletes.”
James, 18, is entering his freshman year at USC and is ranked 20th in the 2023 ESPN 100 rankings. He is the sixth-rated point guard in the class of 2023.
It is the second straight year the Trojans program has had a player suffer cardiac arrest.
Center Vincent Iwuchukwu, one of the top incoming freshman in college basketball last season, suffered cardiac arrest on July 1 and was hospitalized for a few days. He returned to play for USC in January, appearing in 14 games. -ESPN
Damar Hamlin, the Buffalo Bills safety who resumed his career following a mid-game heart attack during a “Monday Night Football” game last season, tweeted support for James.
“Prayers to Bronny & The James family as well. [Folded hands, praying emoji] here for you guys just like you have been for me my entire process.”
Of course, it couldn’t have possibly been the vaccine—as you see, LeBron James researched it and gave it a clean bill of health.
“After doing my research and things of that nature, I felt like it was best suited not only for me, but for my family and for my friends, and that’s why I decided to do it,” said James in Sept. 2021, adding that he was initially skeptical about the vaccine before deciding to get it.
Seems like Twitter has a few theories:
An Oxford University study earlier showed that the risk of myocarditis, a form of heart inflammation, is greater from getting ‘vaccinated’ with the mRNA shots than from contracting the virus itself. The study was originally published in naturemedicine. https://t.co/lt9VkB5u0o — Kyle Becker (@kylenabecker) July 25, 2023
From another Tweet: “Lebron James has stated his entire family is fully vaxxed. Nothing to see here, carry on.” END QUOTE
LeBron James has been using his prestige as one of the greatest basketball stars ever to promote his “woke” Leftist political agenda. We notice years ago that when his annual income (including his appearances in advertising spots) reached somewhere in the $100 million level, that he was taken under wing by the famed billionaire Warren Buffet, the “Oracle of Omaha.”
Years before, Mr. Buffet had taken a similar, friendly interest in Bill Gates. Are you reading between the lines here? Undoubtedly, Warren offered some advice to LeBron on how to protect his wealth from the tax man by setting up foundations.
One is the LeBron James Family Foundation. And how is that working out? Well, if your goal is to help the disadvantaged youth of your hometown, it is an unqualified failure. Consider the story below which was reported by One America News yesterday. Here are some excerpts.
Every Eighth Grader At LeBron’s ‘I Promise’ School Failed State’s Basic Math Test
By OAN’s Noah Herring
QUOTE: LeBron James’s “I Promise School” has reportedly produced disappointing results, as no eighth grader at the institution has been able to pass the state’s basic math exam in over 3 years.
The I Promise School, which is partly funded by LeBron himself, opened in 2018 as a public school for 1st graders through 8th graders in Akron, Ohio, LeBron’s hometown.
The school was started with a mission to help “those students who are already falling behind and in danger of falling through the cracks,” according to its website.
The school, which operates in conjunction with the LeBron James Family Foundation, has not seen one student in its fall eighth-grade cohort pass the Ohio state math test since the third grade, according to Akron Beacon Journal. END QUOTE
If, on the other hand, LeBron James has been initiated by Warren and his comrades into the elitist, globalist circles, then perhaps the real purpose of the funding of the “I Promise” school” was not what is publicly stated, but is the exact opposite. (You know, kinda like the Federal Reserve and its publicly stated goals upon its founding over a century ago.)
That would be in keeping with the goal of the globalists, which is summed up in one of their mottoes: Out of Chaos, Order… as in their New World Order—which is not new at all but simply a rerun of their malodorous old world order, known biblically as Mystery, Babylon the Great.
We are truly sympathetic of Bronny’s experiencing a heart attack, even if its likely cause was a vax, and we do pray that he has a full recovery. Oh, and while we are praying for the James family, we sincerely pray that the heavenly Father will open the “King’s” eyes, and let him become a whistleblower for the good of all the families in America!
