NBA star LeBron James just gave Trump supporters another reason to boycott him. He appeared to snub a fan wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat at Game 3 of the NBA playoffs Saturday by beginning to toss his towel to the Trump supporter — before throwing it in another direction, out of the fan’s reach.

James, no supporter of President Donald Trump, made clear last year his thoughts on the Republican president, for whom his home state of Ohio voted for in 2016.
“I DON’T THING A LOT OF PEOPLE WAS EDUCATED”
“I don’t think a lot of people was educated,” James said of Trump voters. “And I think that’s one of the biggest problems when it becomes vote time is that people are just not educated on either the individual or what’s going on… I don’t think a lot of people are educated, and they make choices and say things that’s uneducated,”
It doesn’t appear as though James has changed his mind when it comes to Trump.
The Cleveland Cavalier’s tweet calling Trump a “bum” went viral back in September, ending the year as the most retweeted post from an athlete on the platform.
And this Saturday, as James was about to toss his towel into the audience, he motioned as if he was about to throw it at a man donning a “Make America Great Again” hat. The man even held up his hands, showing that he was ready to catch it. However, at the last moment, James tossed the towel in the opposite direction instead.
