Basketball player Lebron James, known for pedaling leftist causes and supporting the Chinese Communist Party, was caught on camera having a complete meltdown — throwing an actual childish tantrum on the floor of the basketball court after referees missed a foul call.
The Los Angeles Lakers player “threw himself on the floor and proceeded to wail like a scorned child toward the end of regulation in the Lakers’ 125-121 loss to the Celtics,” according to Breitbart News.
The incident came at the very end of the game when James was attempting to make the game-winning shot. While making his way to the hoop, the refs missed an obvious foul where a Celtics player hit James on the arm while he was driving to the basket.
James had a legitimate reason to be upset — but the epic tantrum he threw, which Breitbart News characterized as “one of the most childish pouting sessions ever seen,” definitely didn’t help his case.

The Lakers player has long been the subject of controversy. While James signed a $97 million deal in mid-2022 that made him the highest-paid player in the history of the NBA, it also came at a price — as it was contingent on the league’s lucrative financial dealings with the slave labor-loving Chinese Communist Party.
James has consistently spoke in favor of China, even condemning then-Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey for supporting Hong Kong. Morey was attacked by James for simply tweeting: “Fight for Freedom, Stand with Hong Kong.”
“You know, when you’re misinformed, or you’re not educated about something, and I’m just talking about the tweet itself, you never know the ramifications that can happen,” James said. “So many people could have been harmed, not only financially, but physically, emotionally [and] spiritually.”
While James continues to support China — a totalitarian dictatorship that cracks down on its own citizens operates concentration camps and utilizes slave labor — he has consistently attacked the United States for supposedly ‘oppressing’ Black people.
“We’ve been oppressed for so long,” James claimed while promoting his left-wing “More Than a Vote” campaign in 2020 to fight supposed “voter suppression” in Georgia.
He also appeared to make threats against a police officer in the aftermath of the shooting of criminal Jacob Blake, who was proven to be holding a knife when he was shot.
Remember when Lebron James tweeted a photo of a police officer with the words "you're next" after the officer shot a knife-wielding maniac who was in the process of trying to murder a young woman? He was never suspended, never condemned by the NBA, never any accountability at all

Meanwhile, his tantrum on the basketball court epitomizes his attitude, throwing tantrums about both real and imagined slights against him while living in the freest nation in the world and making millions of dollars in his chosen profession.
