LeBron James’ Behavior During National Anthem Sparks Controversy (Video)

LeBron James made headlines this week for attending his son Bronny’s first ever college basketball game.

While Bronny’s big USC debut and what it means for his 2024 NBA Draft stock was obviously a major storyline, it wasn’t the only thing people talked about after the outing.

Another subplot that emerged was LeBron’s behavior during the National Anthem.

A video of what the Los Angeles Lakers star was doing while the National Anthem played began circulating online shortly thereafter:

Needless to say, a lot of people had strong reactions to the visual of LeBron just sitting there.

They flocked to social media to weigh in:

At the end of the day, LeBron has always been a surprisingly-polarizing political figure. This is a guy, after all, who famously helped pay $27 million so that felons would be able to vote.

In that respect, this latest brouhaha is unsurprising.

That said, it will still be interesting to see how the Lakers star chooses to respond.

Will LeBron address his National Anthem controversy at some point this week? Time will tell.
