LeBron James’ Cryptic COVID Post Goes Viral

LeBron James has had some critical comments about COVID protocols in the past. And now, it appears as though he’s critical of how we’re viewing the virus as a whole lately.

On Friday morning, LeBron took to social media to seemingly say that COVID for being no less serious than a common cold or the flu.

People were quick to react to LeBron James’ COVID view.

LeBron James was recently involved in some controversy when he tested positive for COVID but didn’t miss much time because it was ruled a “false positive”.

“I knew I was going to get cleared. I never ever felt sick at all,” James said. “I know you can be asymptomatic. But if what I had was a positive COVID test, then what are we doing? What are we talking about? I thought it was handled very poorly.

“Usually when you have a positive test, they’ll test you right away to make sure,” James added. “There was not a follow-up test after my positive test. It was straight to isolation and you’ve been put into protocol. That’s the part that kind of angered me. I had to figure out a way to get home from Sacramento by myself. They wouldn’t allow anyone to travel with me, no security, no anything, when I traveled back from Sacramento. And then I had to put my kids in isolation for the time being, the people in my household in isolation for the time being, so it was just a big-time inconvenience. That was the anger part.”

Maybe LeBron James will actually endear himself to some of those Trump supporters who he’s clashed with in the past over his take on the COVID stuff.
