Texas NBA Coach Praises Lebron James Off The Court

San Antonio Spurs snapped their four game losing streak on the road against a surging Lebron James Cavaliers team.  Spurs coach Gregg Popovich says James who scored 33 points in the 110-94 loss paid compliments on how James handles social issues.  Saying he's just as effective off the court as he  on when it comes role models. "he's been a brilliant example for millions of kids, especially kids with lesser opportunity and who haven't had he same advantages as others"

The 4 time MVP is also likened to the Black Panther movie noting "how cool is it for kids to see, that superhero? Well Lebron's been that for a long time." Recently James along with Golden State Warrior Kevin Durant were critical of President Trump, and in return was blasted by pundit Laura Ingraham of FOX news.  Poppovich called her arrogant, and says it's a shame that Ingraham doesn't have a feel for who James is.
