Former ESPN sports reporter, Michelle Beadle, has claimed that LeBron James tried to get her fired from ESPN during a podcast called What Did I Miss? with Michelle Beadle. Former NBA star Paul Pierce as a guest on the podcast where Beadle made the claim against James.
This all goes back to LeBron’s ‘The Decision’ where he televised leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers – something sports fans easily made fun of because it was completely absurd and arrogant to televise yourself leaving a team.
Beadle’s claim is that LeBron tried to have her fired for what she said about ‘The Decision’ which was something just about everyone made fun of.
“He tried,” Beadle said. “He did try to do that. I was like, ‘Wow, I’m honored that I’m even on your mind. Thank you very much, sir. That’s a weird place for me to be.’”
“My stuff with him started off not personal. I made fun of The Decision like 400,000 other talking heads did at the time. I think for some reason that was it. It wasn’t personal to begin, obviously now it will always be personal. It is what it is. I’m very comfortable with not liking people.”
These are her claims against LeBron and it’s unclear what the rest of her story might be because they changed the subject during the podcast.
