LeBron James doesn't shy away from expressing his opinions on social media. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar is very active on the internet and doesn't hesitate to congratulate or call out people depending on their words.
The King's relationship with the media isn't always the best, but he's not paying much attention to that. In fact, he recently called out ESPN analyst Max Kellerman for his takes on NFL legend Tom Brady. TB12 has been linked with retirement for several years now, yet he's still active, trying to win a second consecutive Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Five years ago, Kellerman was sending Brady to a retirement home, and those words have come back to haunt him. After a video of the 48-year-old resurfaced, everybody had something to say about his hot take on Brady's career.
“Tom Brady’s just about done,” Kellerman said in a “First Take” segment. “It could be his next game, it could be a year from now, but he is going to fall off a cliff. Tom Brady is going to be a bum in short order.”
Bron took notice of these words and called out Kellerman, taking a shot at him and the entire media for always making hot takes to get reactions from the public.
"When will it stop?? Never!! Cause hot take hate simply sells," LeBron wrote on an Instagram story.
Ever since that 2016 video, Brady went to four more Super Bowls (2017, 2018, 2019, and 2021), winning three of them, including a 28-point comeback against the Atlanta Falcons in 2017. Brady has proven he's the NFL GOAT, and those who didn't believe it have changed their minds after every win he's collected in the past five years.
LeBron wants to emulate his longevity, as the quarterback keeps playing at 45, dominating the competition, showing why he's such an incredible legend not only in the NFL but the world of sports.
