He went ahead to admit that there is free speech but there is a lot of negativity that comes with it.
Lebron was answering a questioned posed to him about a previous comment by Houston Rockets manager Daryl Morey.
Daryl Morey was in support of the protesters and their demand for free speech.
Following the comments, James has been accused of double standards as others say he used his status before to call for justice.
