LeBron James is firing back at a Cincinnati, Ohio, bar owner who says NBA games won’t be televised at his establishment until the Lakers superstar is kicked out of the league.
Earlier this week, Jay Linneman, owner of Cincinnati’s Linne’s Pub. is telling patrons to go elsewhere if they expect to watch NBA games at his bar.
Linneman went on to add that he believes NBA players “just need to play the game and that’s it” and “their opinion doesn’t really matter.”
LeBron immediately mocked the bar owner with a tweet on Saturday afternoon.
Aww Damn! I was headed there to watch our game tonight and have a drink! Welp. 🥴 https://t.co/RRfRksjckM

LeBron has recently found himself at the center of controversy when he tweeted and then deleted a post targeting a police officer who shot and killed a 16-year-old girl in Ohio as she attempted to stab another person.
