Lebron James is having a tough week of it so far. The social activist and occasional basketball player received blowback for his post threatening an officer, then made matters worse by saying it was the fault of others misinterpreting his threat.
Now, this is not going to help. During some pregame time, NBA reporter Taylor Rooks saw Mr. James reading a book, so she inquired about his tome. (”Tome” is another word for book, for you NBA fans.)

Oh…oh dear, this is not good.
Remember riding the bus on Monday morning, and you get reminded you have a book report due that day…? That’s what this sounded like.
I remember those days in HS when I clearly didn’t prepare for the test ????

So true. He does not seem to be able to pull off ”natural”.
Why is he always only a couple pages into any book he reads

Sounds like a politician. Gets asked a question and in no way, shape, or form answers it.

That’s not fair — he has not gotten to that chapter yet. Or, any of them.
