Lakers star LeBron James admits athletes, friends tell him he should run for President one day
When asked by Champion if he has any interest in running for President after he retires from the NBA, the Lakers small forward said he doesn’t know since it seems like a lot of work.
The four-time MVP and three-time champion also stressed that he wants to vote President Donald Trump out of office in the upcoming election.
In 2018, James helped open up a school in his hometown of Akron, Ohio called the I PROMISE School. The King looked like a President when he was speaking at the grand opening. It was a special day for the Lakers star since he grew up in Akron, Ohio and was able to impact his community in a positive light.
The upcoming election is very important, which is why numerous athletes have been imploring people to vote. James has been speaking out about his “More Than a Vote” campaign despite being in the Disney bubble.
LeBron may be focused on winning title No. 4 with the Lakers, but he’ll never stop advocating for change in America.
In his second season with the Lakers, James averaged 25.3 points, 7.8 rebounds and 10.2 assists in the regular season. He led the NBA in assists per game for the first time in his career and is an MVP Finalist.
James is doing more assisting off the court as he tries to make a social change amid these troubling times.
