LeBron James Responds To Donald Trump Calling Him 'Stupid'

He has the most powerful job in the world. Then, Trump took to Twitter and verbally assaulted the "King", calling him a "dumb" and Lemon "the dumbest man on television".

Will LeBron and the Lakers make a deep playoff run in their first year? "I like Mike!" Trump tweeted.

With the young core another year into development and the addition of James, the Lakers are going to be one of the most entertaining teams to watch in the National Basketball Association. "Stephen Curry is hesitating, therefore invitation is withdrawn!"

James did not respond immediately, but has taken his time to hit back at the president, but did so not with an insult but a question. "No, because I'm not", he said. In addition to adding multiple players who have been at their best with the ball in their hands, the Lakers injected their locker room with some strong and unique personalities. "That doesn't bother me at all".

Cavaliers among those pursuing Timberwolves star Butler
They are the three teams he is said to be willing to sign a max contract extension with if he is traded . Taylor's urgency to trade Butler is music to the ears of Oklahoma City fans.

Saying he understands that the revamped Los Angeles Lakers will need time to mesh, Magic Johnson said he told head coach Luke Walton not to worry if the team gets off to a bumpy start this season.

So with that in mind, I'd like to direct you to this excerpt from LeBron James in his interview with the Hollywood Reporter, as James tries to fight against the idea that his production businesses were the driving force behind his move to Los Angeles.

Trump is no stranger when it comes to wading into national issues and providing his opinion or judgment.
