LEBRON JAMESIf I Were Brittney Griner ...I'D QUESTION GOING BACK TO USA​

LeBron James says Brittney Griner's been in captivity for way too long without the U.S. bringing her home, so if he were the WNBA star, he'd question returning to America.
Bron made the comments during a recent taping of "The Shop" ... when the conversation apparently turned to the incarcerated American hoops star.
"Now, how can she feel like America has her back? I would be feeling like, 'Do I even want to go back to America?'"



It's clear -- at least from the short trailer that was released -- that LeBron doesn't believe the U.S. is doing nearly enough to bring BG home.
Of course, Griner was arrested in a Russian airport near Moscow in mid-February ... after Russian authorities said they found vape cartridges with cannabis oil in her bag.
Initially, the American public wasn't made aware Griner was arrested ... which was strategic on the part of America. With the Russia-Ukraine war waging, the U.S. knew Griner could be used by Russia to gain leverage against the West.
But, that strategy only worked for a couple of weeks. Eventually, the news got out, and it's been one of the biggest stories since.

Griner's case has consistently been covered in America, and across the world.
Brittney's wife, Cherelle Griner, recently spoke with President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
(Note: in fairness to LBJ's point, "The Shop" episode seems to have been filmed before Cherelle spoke to the president.)
Biden also wrote a letter to Brittney ... which she recently received.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has regularly fielded questions from reporters at the WH about all topics Griner-related.
The United States Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, has also been in communication with the Griner family. U.S. Congressman Colin Allred, a former athlete at Baylor (like Brittney), has also spent countless hours working to free Griner.

Politicians aside, everyone from fellow athletes to regular people have been touched by the Griner case ... and have prayed for her safe return.
In fact, supporters of other prisoners locked up abroad, particularly in Russia, have been peeved by how hard the U.S. government has seemingly tried to get BG back, while other families believe the same level of effort isn't being paid to the cases of their loved ones.
As for her release ... unfortunately, nothing looks imminent.
After months of sitting in a Russian cell, Griner recently appeared before a judge and indicated her desire to plead guilty to the drug charge.
Griner has not yet been sentenced. She could face 10 years in prison.
Full "The Shop" ep. drops Friday on HBO.

I'm a BIG Lebron Fan, but I starting to think he loves the hate and criticism. They gone kill him for this one.

America has a lot of problems especially for us, but where could we move to? Moving to the next city over aint easy.


It's already started, FATLOCKE WEIGHS in

I mean, there’s an argument to be made that were she a pretty white blonde named Becky, she’d be home already - or, further, wouldn’t have been arrested. However, she shouldn’t have tried to bring contraband into a fascist authoritarian state that’s presently under fire for its invasion of Ukraine and the subject of global sanctions spearheaded by her home country, the U.S.

Strongly support lebron just as a black man and truly have love for him but disagree here, griner should obey the rules of the country she goes to, she isnt immune from following laws. Its simple, if you want to go to a foreign country, obey their rules. You know the white supremacists like clay travis, doug gottlieb, c00ns like whitlock will feast on this for a while, same as the racist r/nba

That's a stupid thing to say.

Not even on some patriotic bullshyt, but getting back to the USA means getting out of foreign prison and back to the comfort of home and family. It ain't like she went on vacation and started questioing Amerikkkan exceptionalism and is now debating on leaving.

This is why when c00ns root for lebron to fail it pisses me off so much, this devils were openly mocking kobe bryant dead body and his child on ****** it was a joke for those folks, they hate lebron and everything he represents, billonaire, black, clean, they are desperate to get something to stick on him and thankfully nothing yet. To them getting lebron would be the big fish and c00nish nikkas on here cant see the picture. go on ****** or any yahoo comments and see how much they hate bron.

I really think its the ghost of Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Muhammad Ali, Jim Brown, Bill Russell, etc and other athletes in the 1960s that make Athletes of today jump out of their seat to say the most Fake Militant thing they can think of or else they feel like they aren't doing their part

Its ok if you're not that type of person. You don't gotta pretend Bron, we will still support you
