LeBron James is an NBA superstar who does most of his talking on the basketball courts. The Cleveland Cavaliers franchise player is not one to do anything to hurt his brand [VIDEO], and whether he is in Cleveland or his old home with the Miami Heat, all LeBron says usually involves his team and play on the court. When reporters often bring up off-the-court issues, James is usually tight-lipped and his favorite quote is that if you don't hear it from him, it is probably a lie. That makes anything that James says something that people need to listen to, including his most recent quotes given on the Cari Champion "Rolling with the Champion" show.

LeBron James talks about his status

When it comes to LeBron James and his status in the NBA, most fans and fellow players consider him the best in the game. When LeBron appeared on "Rolling with the Champion," he was joined by Kevin Durant, another player who can lay claim to being one of the best stars in the NBA. However, when it comes to these players places in society, it is a different issue.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors stars had some interesting thoughts about where they, two of the richest and most talented superstars in the NBA, stands in the real world. When asked about where he stands in society, LeBron James said that he is a black man with a lot of money but that has nothing to do with how society views him.

When talking about his "crib in Brentwood," LeBron James said that he had the word "ni**er" spray-painted on his gate.

That, to him, proves that despite his money and fame, he is not really that removed from where he stood in the past in the eyes of racists.

NBA stars in the real-world

When it comes to LeBron James, a lot of people respect him and what he has meant to the NBA and professional sports in general. However, on May 31, 2017, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors were preparing to play in the first game of the NBA Finals and police arrived at James' home to find that racial slur painted on his gate.

At the time of the incident, LeBron James said that it doesn't matter how much money a person has or how famous they are. James said that it doesn't matter how many people actually respect you [VIDEO]. In America, there are still too many racists that make being a black man hard, no matter who you are. the Cleveland Cavaliers star said that there is still a long way to go before African Americans can feel equal to other citizens on the United States.
