JR sees LeBron's perspective when it comes to Jerry Jones and how the media has treated a recent troubling photo regarding the Cowboys owner

The Todd Starnes Show
Todd Starnes

So my biggest fear is there's going to be sneaks in the toilet. We're all afraid of that one strange thing. I'm Larry Mullins, the host of a new short 10-minute podcast called Your Weirdest Fears. We unpack where these fears come from. A rat climbed into my toilet.

And learn how to manage them. Listen and subscribe to Your Weirdest Fears on the Odyssey app or wherever you get your podcasts. Is there something really absurd that skeeves you out? Getting a paper cut on my eyeball. A fear you can't shake? I'm going to leak ocular fluid down my cheeks.

It's going to go into my mouth and I will perish. Whatever scares you, I want to talk about it. Join me, Larry Mullins, on my new podcast, Your Weirdest Fears.

Listen and subscribe to Your Weirdest Fears on the Odyssey app or wherever you get your podcast from. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. It is the JR Sport Brief show on CBS Sports Radio. We are coming to you live from the Rocket Mortgage Studios.

When you need cash out of your home and a simple way to get it, Rocket, Rocket can. I'm going to be hanging out here with you for the next three hours. I hope you have a tremendous day, a tremendous evening. I'm going to do my job to get you closer to Friday which will also happen to be the 39th birthday of Aaron Rodgers. Happy almost birthday to Aaron Rodgers.

We talked about him to open up the show. Even with busted up ribs and a broken finger, broken thumb, he's going to play against the Chicago Bears this Sunday. We talked about the return of Deshaun Watson this Sunday against the Houston Texans down in Houston. There's going to be a lot of boo birds.

There's going to be a lot of vitriol, a lot of hate out there on Sunday. We talked about Antonio Brown and the arrest warrant for domestic violence. Basically Antonio Brown is in his house right now. The police are trying to get him out and I don't know, maybe he's watching Netflix.

I have no idea. Also, it's Thursday, Thursday night football. It's like the bleeding ultimately has to stop. Right now in Foxborough, the Buffalo Bills are beating up on the New England Patriots 24 to 7. It's about three minutes left in the game. New England Patriots are in the red zone trying to make the score look respectable. If they can come up with three more touchdowns to win this game, then God bless them. I don't know how they will do it.

This has been someone walking into the house and going into your fridge and eating all the food and leaving. This is what the Buffalo Bills are doing here to the New England Patriots. So we'll talk about this game at its conclusion. We will hear from the players. We will hear from the coaches and I'm sure Bill Belichick will sound absolutely thrilled knowing that his team right now is about to fall to six and six. Always a pleasant time hearing from Bill Belichick. 855-2124CBS.

That's 855-2124CBS. You can find me online at JR Sport Brief and I'm hanging out here with my main man, super producer and host, Dave Sheppard. This is a crazy time. You know, there's so many instances where you feel like you're living in the Twilight Zone. Knowing that there's an arrest warrant out for Antonio Brown is one issue. Not surprising, he had an issue with the mother of his child on Thanksgiving. He threw a shoe at her. I mean, this is, these are things that you cannot make up.

Unfortunately, they're not, they're not surprising. I already told you about Antonio Brown. What has he been doing for the past year since he walked off of the field from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers? He's been hanging out with Kanye West, who I will, I will not justify, you know, anything that this man has said, but this ties in not only to Antonio Brown.

Kanye West is so busy that he has now also said that he has, you know, he has caught his ex-wife at one point in time with Chris Paul. I will leave that to you. Such a wild world that we live in right now. The Twilight Zone. Shep, is there anything worse than the Twilight Zone?

Is there? Yeah. Being a Kanye West world or Yee, whatever he calls himself these days, that's gotta be worse. Yeah.

Whatever he is at is, yeah, I don't want to be there. That he is also another individual that, that needs help. There's a, there's a bucket of individuals that need help, which, which leads me here. We have, fame will eat people up and spit them out. This isn't anything new to social media.

It's enhanced. Social media, the opportunity, the chance to connect with thousands and millions of people at one time, share information, good, bad, true, false is, it's a tricky thing. And it just feels like for the past 24 hours over the past several years as so many of these platforms have developed, we have seen great innovations and great tools to learn.

I'm a result, quote unquote, of social media and the internet starting my career on YouTube. But we know through every rabbit hole, there's good, there's bad, there's opportunity, there are things that will just chew you up and destroy you, terribly. And so unfortunately, Antonio Brown or Kanye West, these terrible things happen and it doesn't seem like there's a, there's a way out. And so that's why when people sometimes want to absolutely destroy LeBron James and for what he's done in the public eye for now, the better part going on, you know, 20 years is, is mind boggling to me. I don't know what LeBron James, I don't know what any of these folks who I don't know personally, I don't know what they do for a living or what they do in their personal lives, I should say.

Who knows what anybody does in their personal lives when they go home and the doors close? Who knows? We can only judge people by what we know and what they do publicly. But in the case of LeBron James, a public figure for the better part of 20 years, he has not been perfect. This man has not been destructive. This man has spoken out against things that he is not in favor of.

There have been times where he has misstepped. There have been rumors of you. Anybody can, can have rumors. You don't exist in the public space for this long and not have rumors. But for the most part, I would say things have been pretty damn good. Exemplary. You can pull out decisions and you can pull out not necessarily a speaking out against China human rights violations and you can talk about him quitting on teams.

We can go down the gamut. There hasn't been a scandal to destroy the guy. There are no issues with his family. This man has given back and put more into the community than what people would give him credit for.

Some people. Now having said that, I don't need to go down the list of accolades for LeBron James. I don't need to discuss his current standing on the Lakers, the Lakers' current standing. He's one of the greatest athletes on earth to ever play a sport.

You know, last night we talked about international athletes and the greatest of greats of greats. He is not Michael Jordan, not by a stretch, but he is carving out a legacy that is already ridiculous for a young man who came from absolutely nothing. Where he has come from and what he's been able to do is exemplary because we've seen many individuals have the opportunity and fail and fall. And he's been able to come out on the other side. Nobody does everything by themselves, but he's done an amazing job up until now. And so LeBron James is, as we know, has been someone to speak out against whatever he feels is not right. And it's well within his right.

And he's more than welcome to share his opinion and he can be selective about it just like anybody else. And so last night, the Los Angeles Lakers, while we were right here on air, they took on the Portland Trail Blazers and they won 128 to 109. After the game, LeBron James was asked about the Blazers. He was asked about the team, asked about health, and then LeBron James, who's been out for, you know, about a week, two weeks dealing with his groin issue, which has bothered him for a few years now, he kind of flipped the tables on the media. You guys have asked me all these questions about basketball. But then LeBron James, he had a question for the media and it seemingly came out of nowhere.

Take a listen to this. I was wondering why I haven't gotten a question from you guys about the Jerry Jones photo. But when the Kyrie thing was going on, you guys were quick to ask us questions about that.

Okay. Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on. And I don't even want you guys to say nothing. When I watch Kyrie talk and he says, I know who I am, but I want to keep the same energy when we're talking about my people and the things that we've been through. And that Jerry Jones photo is one of those moments that our people, black people, have been through in America. And I feel like as a black man, as a black athlete, as someone with power and a platform, when we do something wrong or something that people don't agree with, it's on every single tabloid, every single news coverage, it's on the bottom ticker, it's acts about every single day. But it seems like to me that the whole Jerry Jones situation photo, and I know it was years and years ago and we all make mistakes. I get it. But it seemed like it's just been buried under like, oh, it happened. Okay. We just, we just move on.

And I was just kind of disappointed that I haven't received that question from you guys. Okay. Now, as an overall, LeBron James is, he ain't telling no lies. If you want to take a look at media as a whole, there's hypocrisy, there's double standards, it exists, it exists everywhere, it exists in media. That is absolutely 100% correct. That's a fact.

If I want to think about a black man's experience in America, I can certainly speak for myself. It exists. It's a fact.

There's hypocrisy, there's double standards, not necessarily even in regards to coverage, you know, what you need to do to procure a job, how you need to hold a job, your expectations, you need to do more. It's a fact. It's true. I can't speak for what LeBron James has asked about.

Damn it. I don't know about his availability. He hasn't played basketball in about two weeks. And so why the Laker, you know, press or media wouldn't ask him about Jerry Jones.

I don't know. Has he been around? As far as I know, he's been hurt. I don't know what his availability has looked like.

Well, here's the thing. He said it at the end and God bless him for, for bringing it up. He doesn't, does he need the press? Does he need the media to ask him? His point is very much different than that. It's that you don't ask about it.

You asked me about everything else. The media as a whole brings this up or talks about that. You know, if you're not familiar with what took place with Jerry Jones, there was a photo that came out. I don't know who put it out. You can surmise or think about who did it, but there was a photo that went out dating back to 1957. Shep, you and I have talked about this and we know this because we talk about how old he is. Jerry Jones is 80 years old right now.

Correct. This photo was when he was 14 years old, 14. He is at North Little Rock High School and he is standing with an entire group who are basically trying to block black students from entering into the school.

If you're not familiar, the word is called segregation. And so Jerry Jones was asked about that photo and Jerry Jones basically told everyone that, yes, I was there. I had no idea what was going on. And that was, that was pretty much it. There was, there was nothing else that that came out of it. It was, it was widely accepted as aw shucks. He was, he was 14 years old and you know, I guess he's a dumb kid and what else was there to say? You buy that JR? It's tough.

It's tough for me to buy that. He knew, yeah, he had no idea. He was clueless on shucks. My, my next point was that, you know, when you're 14 years old, there's a lot that you don't know about life. There's a lot that you don't understand. Looking at someone because of, you know, the color of their skin. I think most 14 year, 14 year olds are cognizant and can at least understand, Hey, Oh, they're black.

I don't want them over here. And so I don't think there's a pleading of ignorance there for Jerry Jones. You know, there's a lot that, and this is not an ageism thing. This is just an everybody thing. There's a lot that kids get away with.

Why? Cause they're kids, right? They're still learning. They don't know better. They don't know right from wrong. You gotta, you gotta teach them up.

And when I say kids, I mean, real kids, babies and toddlers and people learning how to be social human beings. You get some leeway because you're learning. There's a lot that older people get away with because they're older. Oh, they've been through it. You gotta give them leeway.

Oh, they're old enough. They can say what they want to say. People look at Jerry Jones and they think about the male. He's the, he owns the most valuable sports team and franchise on earth. He's an excellent marketer. You know, we make, we make fun of it here, but you can listen to Jerry Jones speak. He, as he has gotten older, he doesn't even, just didn't even speak the way that he used to, I don't know, 10 and 15 years ago, he doesn't convey the same type of thoughts in the most coherent way. The other day, this past week, maybe it was because of his McDonald's chicken McMuffins with two extra salts. I don't know.

The man had a coughing fit on the radio. Fine. Okay.

Everybody coughs. It's a human function. My point is, is that a lot of people kind of bend over to the Jerry Jones. He's a cartoon character. He's a wealthy man. He's a billionaire. What are you going to do against him? How many billionaires can get their asses? What, Robert Sarver? Donald Sterling?

And so it's real easy to go, Oh, that was a long time ago. And Jerry Jones is old and who cares and, and brush it away. But LeBron James absolutely has a point. It's true. Here's the unfortunate thing. There's a fatigue. There's a fatigue for it. There's a fatigue, unfortunately, for racism of, of any form of, of any kind. You have people who don't care.

Oh, I don't, I don't care. Nobody's running around and change. So it doesn't matter without having full empathy or an understanding of what other people have to deal with day after day, minute after minute, hour after hour. And it's not a washing away of what anybody else has to deal with, but it's just a full understanding that we, we all here with the same human experience on earth at minimum, with all of our differences, we can at least try to understand, try or be empathetic to what other people have to experience or what they say they feel. Cause everybody feels the same thing in different ways. I think most of us understand what pain feels like or rejection or isolation, but when someone calls it out to go, Oh, stop complaining and stop whining. What are your own internal issues that cause you to not personally listen and pay attention? LeBron James brings up an excellent point. I can sit here every night and it would not be the forum, but I can sit here every day, every night on a different station, a different channel and talk about societal issues and sports for, for people, for African American.

I can do that. People get fatigued of it. People be tired. Somebody's tired of hearing what I'm saying right now. And you know what the fact is, I don't care. It doesn't matter. You know, there are plenty of people who are mistreated in various ways of life every single day. And this is not an excuse for Kyrie Irving.

This is not to take a deep dive into what Amazon allows or doesn't allow on their platform. Each of us, all of us can do something. Each of us, all of us have a responsibility, whether you want to accept it, embrace it or completely reject it. It's, it's up to you, but there's something that all of us can do and that's make decisions and choices.

We can make decisions and choices that, that can better ourselves, but don't necessarily have to harm other people that can also be understanding of other people. And that's not a decision for LeBron James to make for us. That's not a decision for Jerry Jones to make for us or Amazon or the Brooklyn Nets or Kyrie Irving or multimedia platforms or JR or anybody.

It's like, Hey, what do you, what do you do? LeBron James has an excellent point. Was it the forum or what does it matter? He could have said that on on YouTube.

He could have said it on the shop. He could have, he could have said it on absolutely anything, but LeBron James wanted to call out something that is, is common and anything that puts a light onto, onto how any group of people are mistreated is fine by me. Doesn't matter if you're black, white, yellow, purple or pink, but there are a lot of people who always find it more comfortable to maintain the status quo and that's just to turn a blind eye. I'd be very interested to hear what Jerry Jones has to say in response and whether or not Jerry Jones, if he does have a response, whether it's made to someone who will actually, you know, push him for a legitimate response or whether he's going to answer someone who just wants to, you know, feed him a Twinkie in the process. This is the same Jerry Jones who a couple of seasons ago, you know, basically told every one of his players, you know, how they need to perform or act with the playing of the national Anthem, but then ultimately took a knee with his players and wanted to, you know, give you a wink as well. You know, there should be an answer from Jerry Jones and he shouldn't be asked this by anyone who's just going to do what a lot of people typically do and that's kiss his ass.

Good on LeBron for, for, for calling it out and let's see what comes out of it and whatever it does, I hope it's bigger than Jerry Jones because it's a much larger issue. It's just a people issue. How do you treat people? Where's the standard? This is not cancel culture. This is how do you treat humans and individuals?

How do you have empathy for how someone else is feeling? It's the JR sport. We show here with you on CBS sports radio 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS. That's 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS. I will take your calls on LeBron James as he has, you know, called out the media for its response to Jerry Jones versus someone like Kyrie Irving. And then also Thursday night football.

It's like the mercy rule. It's finally over. The Buffalo Bills beat the New England Patriots.

The final score is 24 to 10. We will talk about that game. We will discuss LeBron.

I do want to tell you about someone who, uh, I guess he didn't apologize, but he clarified his statement. That's Patrick Peterson on Kyler Murray. We'll talk Belichick. We'll talk Josh Allen. We'll talk bills.

We'll talk LeBron. I got you covered. It's the JR sport re show on CBS sports radio. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, man, it's gonna be cliche as a mug, but a long time, long time listener. First time calling, man, and I appreciate your show big time.

You have so much insight. I just want to give you props on that. Call in now at 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS. It's the JR Sport Brief show here on CBS Sports Radio Thursday night football. The game is a wrap. The Buffalo Bills beat the New England Patriots. The final score 24 to 10.

Not a shock, not a surprise. The Buffalo Bills. They improve their record in the AFC to nine and three. The New England Patriots. They fall to six and six and Patriots are what they are. The good defensive team still having difficulty mustering points. They've had a difficulty scoring the football since that guy named Tom Brady left. Not a shock, not a surprise. Buffalo is preparing for the playoffs and the New England Patriots.

They're just trying to hold on to just any any type of life to still get in. And if they do get into the playoffs, we know exactly what will happen. They're going to get punched out or maybe kicked. 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS. That's 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS. We're going to talk about this game. Josh Allen just sat up on the the Amazon set and so I'm sure we'll hear from Josh Allen. I believe and I'm almost certain that Bill Belichick will speak to the media and have something miserable to say and so we will get to all of that as we continue on with the show right before we went to break. We talked about LeBron James speaking on Jerry Jones unprompted. He decided to ask the media a rhetorical question, but actually bring it up. You know the coverage of Jerry Jones and the photo from him as a 14 year old and why that didn't garner attention as he was at school and a group of kids who were, you know, crowding black students from entering the school.

This was in 1957 and LeBron James was just really calling out the fact that hey I was asked every day about Kyrie but this issue with Jerry Jones is just swept under the rug. Let's take some of your calls. Let's keep it rolling. Manny. He's calling from Flushing, New York.

Hey Manny, you're on CBS Sports Radio. What's up? What's up JR? How you doing my brother? I'm good man. Go ahead.

Good man. You know, to be honest with you. I don't blame I don't blame LeBron for that because you know the last few days. I mean the last few weeks. I mean, we've been talking about, you know, even like less than a month. We didn't talk about Kyrie Irving the Kyrie Irving and where he did, you know, listen, I'm not I'm not condoning what Kyrie's doing, but I understand was trying to do he was not he was trying to to look try to learn about his heritage and from a black perspective, but Jerry Jones part. I mean, it's been a week and nobody's talking about it.

I think LeBron's basically saying look we have we want that same energy like you did with Kyrie Irving. We want that for Jerry Jones, especially his his past because we don't know about Jerry Jones and his history with diversity has stopped being good. I mean, you know, I have hiring some not hiring blacks of coaches GMs and presidents and also don't forget the kneeling and also for and also don't forget the George Floyd situation. He didn't really say anything about it until like the last month before the regular before the start of regular season break me saying grace and you know, and you know, you know, if you're Jerry Jones, I mean who would say like basically said look man, I would have if I was your address I would say look man that was 65 years ago. That was not me. I was 14 years old, right? I'm not the I'm not the mother Jerry Jones of 14 years old. I did announce racism and I will never support it. That's it.

That's it. Yeah, it would have it would have been simple to say he just kind of pled ignorance to to what was going on and I think a man of his position of which he doesn't have to answer to too many people in too many instances. He's not used to that and thank you Manny for calling up from from Flushing and that shouldn't necessarily be the case. Like he's Jerry Jones who tells him what to do. I mean in a in a comical way not so comical also serious way people have been trying to tell Jerry Jones to sit his ass down and actually find someone who can help him run the franchise or run it the right way for years now who's going to tell him different if the man doesn't listen about his own business of which it is obviously very successful Sans outside of winning a championship why would he listen to anybody else regarding any other issue all things considered if you want to look at money and cash and of what of which a lot of people measure success who's going to tell him anything he probably is more so than even Roger Goodell Jerry Jones is probably the most powerful man in the NFL who's telling him anything the media kiss his ass Roger Goodell it was reported a couple of months ago that Jerry Jones wanted to kind of bring down his salary make Roger Goodell earn all of his 60 million dollars per year he's not happy you know with what he's doing he wants him to earn the cash who's telling Jerry Jones anything Jerry Jones probably feels Teflon untouchable no one can say or do anything I'd be interested to see how he responds a statement a little bit of a joke and it'll go on unless there's pressure there for real explanation for meeting I have no idea I know as well as you do that this isn't probably over yet and Jerry Jones will try to sweep it under the rug with his I guess his Arkansas charm whatever he wants to call it he will try eight five five two one two four CBS Justin is calling from Tennessee you're on CBS Sports Radio JR I want to talk about Lebron okay not necessarily Jerry Jones I want to talk about Lebron and how arrogant you have to be to stand up at a press conference at an NBA game and lambast the reporters that are there because they haven't asked you about the owner of an NFL team it has nothing to do with your sport that's why they haven't asked you about it there's no ulterior motive if an NHL executive was in a photograph from 70 years ago they're not going to ask Lebron James about an HL owner or an MLB owner or a horse owner or go down the list of all the different sports that there are this has nothing to do with you Lebron this is my problem with Lebron James I used to love this guy but he is so arrogant and full of himself and that's just another example not only did he get on the reporters for not asking him about an NFL owners 70 year old picture he also in that same line said I have so much power and you haven't asked me about this he's no well no that's not well that well I think I think that that well his well let me respond to the last part of what you said I think that's inaccurate Lebron James wasn't referencing how much power he has in regards to the media he was talking about his his influence and the the microphone that he has his power to speak up it wasn't about his power as it relates to the media he was talking about the influence his voice to speak there are plenty of people who don't have a voice and so that was his ultimate point there so that last part I'm 100% fine to be inaccurate and and we can disagree on the first part about about what you said Justin Lebron James wasn't so much beating the media in front of him into the ground or chastising him I don't think it was a matter of of arrogance I think it's a legitimate matter of being frustrated it wasn't so much about the media that was directly in front of him but about the the overall situation and I think he took the opportunity in his press conference of which by the way he is asked it's it's not I understand your point there is no specific reason to say out of the blue to the Sacramento media and that's why I don't think Lebron James was approaching it as hey you Bobby from ESPN oh my god it's ridiculous you didn't ask me about Jerry Jones but it's an overall point for Lebron James who has been injured and out for the past couple of weeks and so he hasn't necessarily had the same media availability he's asked about a million things all the time I have heard him talk about the Cowboys I have heard him be asked about the Cowboys is he going to be asked the same type of way after a game against the Kings no not at all but his overall point is what he said so I don't think it's it's so much as you know oh let's take a look at at the forum that Lebron James decided to use or how he spoke or addressed the reporters or it's a matter of him being arrogance I think it's a matter of him being frustrated and I think there's a larger more introspective conversation to have about what he meant as opposed to how he said it and when he said it well you know that would be fine with me if he just took his time and just said that understandable breakfast he prefaced everything with you didn't ask me about this don't you know what kind of power and platform I have no no no no no that's see but I think yeah no but I think you're missing I explained that Justin and thank you for calling from Tennessee Lebron James did not preface his statement by talking about how much power he has he decided to talk about how he has influence to speak up for issues that aren't fair to other people that's it that was his reference to power Lebron James didn't sit at the podium and tell everyone how he is all powerful and omnipotent it's not what he said he basically said I have a voice when I speak to the media I'm typically asked about everything all the time this is an issue that has taken place over the past week the past month with in regards to Kyrie Irving I view how they've been treated and the light that's been on both issues to be very different it's ironic that y'all haven't taken that same approach that was his point and his point was me as someone who can speak up and have power and not be fired not be belittled not be kicked out of the league not this or that I can't speak up I'm going to utilize my voice and my power to do so it wasn't a power trip to kick the media it's the JR sport re-show here with you on CBS sports radio 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS that's 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS I will take more of your calls we're going to talk about Thursday Night Football the Buffalo Bills and the New England Patriots you're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio you're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio I appreciate you I'm grateful for your brand of sports talk you are the best and I appreciate you keeping us entertained informed with your hard hitting and beautiful style of sports talk call in now at 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS it's the JR Sport Brief show here with you on CBS Sports Radio the Buffalo Bills they take care of the New England Patriots tonight 24 to 10 the Buffalo Bills are trying to run their way to the number one seed in the AFC and the New England Patriots are just trying to hold on and they tried to score some points and some offense tonight and that didn't that didn't work either so when we get to the top of the hour we're going to spend a whole lot of time here on Thursday Night Football we have a bunch of callers on the line who have some thoughts on LeBron James and his comments earlier today or last night I should say on Jerry Jones let's not waste any time 8 5 5 2 1 2 4 CBS we have Glenn he's calling from Toronto you're on CBS Sports Radio very well Glenn what's up okay so sometimes I think that executives just don't know how to get out of their own way and just really need to realize that maybe they should hire PR firms because they can advise them not just to say oh I didn't know I just was there I didn't know you've got to be more affirmative and like say flat out you know I have poor rates you know just be more think I compared a little bit to what happened about it was about a month ago with the Boston burns with that guy who they signed who they had to know that was going to be a bad idea because of what happened in his past but yet they just let it they let it happen and it did and they didn't even consult the players like guys that have been you know Patrice Bergeron has been there for well over a decade and if they'd asked him or asked any of the other senior players that would have said no we don't want this guy anywhere near our team they have to know the PR wise it is a stupid idea and Jerry Jones has got to know better and I know he's not thinks he's untouchable but he has got to know no he's got to know that he's got to come out with a stronger statement than that and I I understand what LeBron saying I kind of agree with him now I don't agree with his stance on Kyrie that's another story which you know we could I could spend 30 minutes discussing but I want to understand it's like why you're not asking me about a guy who you know try to it was at a demonstration trying to block African-American kids from going to school you know like let's get down to the fact that's what was happening and you've got to realize that sometimes you might think you're untouchable but you just need sometimes to shut up take the advice of people that know how to handle this situation and then take their advice okay well thank you Glenn for calling from Toronto yet Jerry Jones is typically marched to the beat of his own drum he is he is and has been the boss and who's gonna tell him otherwise I think you can take a look at how he runs the Dallas Cowboys and realize that he doesn't have too many folks who are in his ear telling him anything or maybe he doesn't listen eight five five two one two four CBS let's go to Illinois and talk to Eric you're on CBS Sports Radio hey I got you JR you have me loud and clear Eric what's up oh my first time calling bud and I love your show I listen to the the Mully and Ha show out here in Chicago every morning and then I listen to your show every night just to get the national news I love it but I heard I heard a caller just a bit ago and you guys were talking about LeBron and how he's saving face and I know you're not gonna like my opinion but this guy wants to talk about you know riding the high horse this and that's where oh no that ah some people have difficulty of articulating themselves or being articulate without using vulgarity I think I've mastered the yard I've been here for quite some time and dump button hasn't had to be used once listen say again chef at one time oh what for me net yeah never once not even close yeah well that line beautifully we have a caller gets on for the first time 15 seconds that's his choice of language come on yeah we can we can do better listen I understand the the China issue if you can call me up and tell me any different about LeBron James in China if you can bring up a different point by all means please do so if you want to tell me LeBron James is a hypocrite how can LeBron James say you know he wants to look out for black people but he doesn't give a damn about the people making his shoes you know I will I will share my own opinion about that because it's what I get paid to do share my opinion when LeBron James called out Daryl Morey and said that he was misinformed I personally felt that LeBron James took a misstep there and if you want to feel comfortable with calling him a hypocrite that's that's your own business if you want to that's fine and I think there's some some potential truth in it as it relates to that issue I also think and understand that all of us every single one of us as individuals and when I think about businesses I think about businesses as people too you know whether you have an EIN as a business or whether you have a social security number as an individual citizen we all operate as as walking numbers and I think it's it's up to each of us to decide to what degree we want to support or not support something or anything LeBron James I feel made a mistake when he made that comment about Daryl Morey I have been out to Hong Kong I love Hong Kong and if we have to go back three years I listened to him make that statement and I said oh whoa that's not cool so I understand anyone who takes issue with what he says or wants to call him a hypocrite in that regard but what does that mean do we discount everything that he says do we say oh my god well he was wrong about that so I'm gonna ignore him here I think it's easy to to put up deflections and deflectors and just ignore some of the larger issues and I think a lot of times that can be lazy now everything else he says is discounted I think we all make choices the phone lines are buzzing I'm gonna take more of your calls on the other side eight five five two one two four CBS will also talk Thursday Night Football it's the JR Sport Reshow CBS Sports Radio
