Bar Owner Who Wants NBA To Expell LeBron James Says Business Has Never Been Better: “Hey LeBron, The West Side Thanks You.”

Bar Owner Who Wants NBA To Expell LeBron James Says Business Has Never Been Better- “Hey LeBron, The West Side Thanks You.”

LeBron James has been the subject of major criticism following his remarks about the police shooting of Ma’Khia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio. Considering his departure from the Cavaliers in 2018, the city was already submerged in negative feelings about the star, which were then perpetuated after Bron criticized the officers involved in the shooting.

It wasn't long before critics flocked to flame the "King," with one Ohio bar owner even going so far as to ban NBA games from his establishment until the league expelled LeBron James.

Well, even now, the fight continues.

After LeBron issued a sarcastic response to the disgruntled bar owner, the guy retaliated with further antagonistic behavior, telling the media that he's gotten an overwhelming amount of support since the incident.

“The support for the position has been overwhelmingly positive and has far outweighed the negatives. I hope people channel the support to law enforcement and not necessarily to Linnie’s Pub,” Linneman said.

With a sign outside the place that reads "Hey LeBron, the West Side thanks you, Linne’s has never been busier," it seems that many Ohio natives are of the same mind as the bar owner, and all have found common ground in criticizing King James.

As for what we can expect from the Lakers legend, he's going to continue to do his thing, regardless of those who have objections.
