LeBron James: 'Took me a little while' to accept white people LeBron James: 'Took me a little while' to accept white people

Green said that MJ did that and now LeBron is doing it his own way.

The Shop made its highly-anticipated debut on Tuesday night.

Most recently, on an episode of HBO's "The Shop", James discussed how he grew up distrusting white people due to being "institutionalized" while growing up in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. It's like, 'They don't f-k with us, they don't want us to succeed'. It's me and my boys going to high school together, we here to hoop. "I'm going to this school to play ball and that's it. I don't want nothing to do with white people, '" he recalled thinking at the time. James said in a statement.

Parker: "My image of my mom - she was there every day". I think you should believe that. "I gave a year up of my career". When I was younger, didn't have a dad.

"I went to an all-white high school".

"And for me to just sit back and not say s*** when a lot of my peers didn't say s***?"

Maverick Carter, James' best friend and longtime business partner, said in the end, it didn't matter because everyone ended up becoming best friends anyway, according to TMZ. It's impossible to be labeled the "best ever" when you haven't climbed the same summits as those before you.

"I think you should say that". THE PANTRY. we know, but you gotta hear him talk about it.

Draymond Green and LeBron James have had their fair share of one-on-one battles in the NBA Finals over the last four years. And it wasn't nothing to do with winning.

"I believe if the greatest quarterback in the world, he's a white quarterback, if it's [Tom] Brady, if it's [Aaron] Rodgers, if it's [Peyton] Manning". And if we're doing the same s-, the same exact s-, I'm talking about a phone is on. For this, we'll be using Jordan as the bar - because for some reason Bill Russell and Abdul-Jabbar never get any love. "It took me a little while to adjust to it". You know what I mean? And you go out there, and the lions are laid out. Like I've got people who call out, Odell! Dance!' Like, I'm a show punk - a show monkey or something. Like I'm a puppet, you know what I mean? F**k all y'all, I'm here.' And until he did that, that's when he became the figurehead that he is.
