LeBron James Will Not Respond To Kareem Abdul-Jabbar


Before the season started Abdul-Jabbar voiced his opinion on the vaccination status of certain players, while encouraging as many people as possible to get their shots, also urging the NBA to insist that all players and staff are vaccinated, or else, removed from the team. He also went at LeBron James for supporting Andrew Wiggins, who at that time didn’t want to get the vaccine.

The Lakers legend recently went at LeBron James again, and absolutely destroyed him over his Covid-19, Spiderman meme post.


“The meme’s implication is that LeBron doesn’t understand the difference among these three illnesses, even after all the information that’s been presented in the press. Well, since he asked, let me help him out by explaining the difference—and how knowing that difference might save lives, especially in the Black community,

As is evident by some of the comments that cheer LeBron’s post, he’s given support to those not getting vaccinated, which makes the situation for all of worse by postponing our health and economic recovery. The CDC reports that those who are unvaccinated are 9 times more likely to be admitted to the hospital and 14 times more likely to die from COVID than those vaccinated. The number rises to 20 time more likely when compared to someone who’s gotten a booster shot. By posting the uninformed meme, LeBron has encouraged vaccine hesitancy which puts lives and livelihoods at risk.”


LeBron James now was asked about Kareem’s statement and his Spiderman Covid meme in general. While he tried to explain the meme, he said he doesn’t have a response to Kareem.


“No, I don’t have a response to Kareem at all,” James said, via Harrison Faigen of SB Nation’s Silver Screen and Roll. “And if you saw the post and you read the tag, you know that I’m literally, honestly asking, ‘help me out.’ Help me kind of figure it all out, like we’re all trying to figure this pandemic out. We’re all trying to figure out COVID and the new strain. And the flu, I think people forgot about the flu. People like literally forgot about the flu during these times, like that’s still going around. It’s flu season, so people have forgot about the flu. People have forgot about common colds. That happens, especially with a lot of our kids that’s in school. My daughter is in first grade, so a lot of these kids are getting like common colds and getting the flu. But no, I don’t have any response to Kareem. No. At all.”
