LeBron James calls out media about Jerry Jones desegregation photo

LeBron James played reporter Wednesday night.

After the Los Angeles Lakers’ 128-109 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers, the star forward inquired why he wasn’t asked about a photo showing Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones looking over a crowd of white students trying to block Black students from going to school at North Little Rock High School in Arkansas in 1957. 

The picture was taken when Jones was 14, but James pointed out that the media wasted no time to ask him about former teammate Kyrie Irving after the All-Star point guard was suspended for posting a link to an antisemitic documentary on social media.

“I got one question for you guys before you guys leave. I was thinking when I was on my way over here, I was wondering why I haven’t gotten a question from you guys about the Jerry Jones photo,” James said. “But when the Kyrie thing was going on, you guys were quick to ask us questions about that.”
