During the latest episode of Los Angeles Lakers star Lebron James HBO series “The shop,” he spoke in detail about his feelings toward NFL owners saying: “In the NFL they got a bunch of old white men owning teams, and they got that slave mentality ” James said during the episode. ” And it’s like, This my team. You do what the F—- I tell y’all to do or we get rid of Y’all.”
“The players are who make the ship go. We make it go. Every Sunday, without Todd Gurley and without Odell Beckam Jr., without those guys there is no football. And it’s the same in the NBA”
Gurley, the Los Angeles Rams star running back, was a guest on Friday night’s episode, which several times compared professional basketball with professional football.
“The difference between the NBA and the NFL, the NBA is what we believe he(a player) can be. The potential,” James said. “In the NFL, it’s like what can you do for me this Sunday, or this Monday or this Thursday, and if you ain’t it, we moving on.”
Added Gurley: “That’s what I say: Your best ability is availability…. It’s really week by week. It ain’t no year by year”
The shop is a 30-minute show set in a barber shop where athletes and entertainers can speak honestly about life and sports. James was talking to his business partner Maverick Carter, Gurley and actor/rapper Ice Cube when he made the comments.
