LeBron James Has Officially Jumped OFF The Cowboys’ Bandwagon…And Onto Another Team’s (VIDEO) – News

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James has been associated with the Dallas Cowboys for most of his time in the spotlight. But he swears he’s a Cleveland Browns fan now.

James, a four-time NBA champion and now the league’s all-time top scorer, backed the San Francisco 49ers to come out on top of the NFC showdown between the two teams on Sunday, which they did as they slapped Dallas around to win 42-10.

Brock Purdy had another stellar outing as he made four touchdown passes, throwing the football for 252 yards without an interception.

Speaking in a video before the game, LBJ stated he’s no Cowboys fan as he bid the Niners good luck.

“I know we got a lot of Cowboys fans in America…I’m not one of them,” he said. “Shout out to the Niners, good luck to y’all today.”

The NBA superstar, who has worn lots of Cowboys gear over the course of his career, switched teams after Colin Kaepernick’s protest spread throughout the NFL and players began taking a knee during the national anthem.

“There was just a lot of things that was going on during when guys were kneeling, and guys were having freedom of speech,” he explained. “They wanted to do it in a very peaceful manner.

“A lot of people in their front office and a lot of people that ran the organization was like, ‘If you do that around here, then you will never play for this franchise again.’ And I just didn’t think that was appropriate.”

As fate would have it, his Browns will be playing the 49ers next.
