Who would've thought two of the greatest players in NBA history -- whose fans have disagreed on almost everything in the past -- would be siding with each other against the President of the United States?

After an interview between LeBron James and Don Lemon aired on CNN two nights ago, US President Donald Trump launched a scathing attack on both men on Twitter, calling both James and Lemon dumb and unintelligent.

As many would've expected, fellow NBA players rallied around LeBron, showing us just how important the NBA brotherhood is. Among those who publically came out to support LeBron was NBA legend Michael Jordan, who voiced his support for what James was trying to do within his community.

According to Geoff Bennett of NBC News, Jordan released a statement through a spokesperson that read, "I support LJ. He's doing an amazing job for his community."

The support for LBJ from Jordan comes as ironic for Donald Trump, who in his tweet attacking LeBron, also stated he was a fan of Michael Jordan rather than LeBron.

With MJ and LBJ united on this issue, it's unlikely we see any NBA players, or athletes in general for that matter, come out and offer their support for Trump after his comments.
