Three-time NBA champion LeBron James has a message to all his haters! Find out what he said, plus get the deets on Michael Jordan donating a half a million dollars to Charlotte charities inside….
You might not like him, but you will respect him! We’re currently living in the “LeBron James” era of basketball where he proves he’s one of the best to ever do it.
For some reason, it seems like there’s always an abundant amount of “hate” aimed at King James, but when you’re at the top of your game, it’s expected. And when you’re a three-time NBA champion in the last 5-years, expect even more hate.
After winning the 2016 NBA Title and copping his third Finals MVP, Bron Bron decided to issue a clap back to all his haters.
He broke his Istagram silence now that the season is over (he always goes on black-out mode during playoffs).
His first post showed the Cleveland Cavaliers baller running through a list of negative comments that have been hurled at him and then responded with the classic Kermit meme slogan, “That’s none of my business.” Oh, and y’all haters better start putting some “respeck” (no typo) on his name!
Cav fans are still relishing in their epic win against the Warriors. Here’s the scene (posted by his longtime friend/business partner Maverick Carter) where thousands lined the streets with Welcome Home signs to show LeBron even more love when he rolled into The Land:

Charlotte Hornets majority owner Michael Jordan is making good on his promise. Back in 2010 when he sealed the deal to own part of the organization, he said he was going to help rebuild and restore Charlotte for his citizens. And now, he’s unveiling new plans on how he’s keeping his promise.
According to the Charlotte Observer, the NBA legend is investing $500,000 (in collaboration with Bank of America and Lowes) to literacy programs to help support charitable causes in the community.
The news site reports:
The $500,000 includes not only cash for charities but also the cost of building and stocking 18 libraries with books at preschools, child care centers, community centers and education nonprofits in the city’s low-income areas. That’s double the amount given last year.
During a day of service event held at the Time Warner Cable Arena, MJ told hundreds of volunteers,
“When I took over majority control of the team, one of the biggest impacts I wanted … was to reconnect back to the community. I felt (that connection) was lost a little bit with the previous ownership, and I felt it was very important. Six years later, here we are. … I am very proud of the commitment of the organization to the community. … My dedication, my drive, is to continue to connect with this community.”
It’s reported MJ and the team have given away more than $3 million that went towards education, hunger, wellness and the military. Loves it!
