Watch Lebron James' Powerful Response After His Home Is Vandalized With Racial Slur — 'Hate In America Is Living Every Day'

LeBron James

LeBron James had an emotional and powerful response after his Los Angeles home was vandalized with a racial slur a day before the NBA Finals.

ICYMI, police are now investigating the incident as a hate crime after the n-word was found spray-painted across the front gate of the athlete's Southern California family home in Brentwood.

On Wednesday, the father-of-three took the opportunity to shed light on how racism in America is "living every day," no matter who you are or how much money you have:

"As I sit here on the eve of one of the greatest sporting events that we have in sports, race and what's going on comes again, and on my behalf and on my family's behalf. But I look at it as, if this can shed light and continue to keep the conversation going on my behalf, then I'm okay with it. … It just goes to show that racism will always be a part of the world, a part of America. Hate in America, especially for African Americans, is with them every day. Even though it's concealed most of the time, people hide their faces, say things about you. When they see you, they smile in your face. It's alive every single day."

Kanter, who is Turkish, has been a vocal critic of Erdoğan's authoritarian regime in the country, and when he was trying to fly on Saturday morning through Romania, it appears that the President — or someone in the Turkish government — got to him.

At least, that's what Kanter thinks.

Here he is describing what happened in a video he posted to Twitter shortly after being detained, on his birthday no less, (below):

Basketball Will Finally Allow Players To Wear Hijabs During Games!

Filed under: ZportzPolitikBasketballGotta Have Faith

basketball players can now wear hijabs

What a wonderful development.

On Thursday, it was revealed that the International Basketball Federation, also known as FIBA, has changed its stance on the issue about players wearing hijabs during games. While the religious headdress was previously banned on safety grounds, the organization has since reviewed its policy after first making exceptions for players back in 2014.

Well, after the governing body met at its congress in Hong Kong, FIBA agreed to a new rule which allows athletes to wear headgear, as long as there is no risk of injury and it matches a team's uniform colors. AH-Mazing!

FIBA addressed the rule change in a statement on their website:

"The new rule comes as a result of the fact that traditional dress codes in some countries — which called for the head and/or entire body being covered — were incompatible with FIBA's previous headgear rule."

We're sure players across the globe are thrilled with this change. *Snaps*

This should teach Thomas a lesson!

A father recently attended the Cleveland Cavaliers/Charlotte Hornets game — but all eyes were on him as he trolled his son in the most petty way ever!

The dad held up a petty (professionally printed, we might add) sign that read:

"Thomas get your grades back up and next time you'll be here. Love, Dad"

LOLz!

Kourtney Kardashian attends basketball game in lace-up leather.

Kourtney Kardashian sure loves her lace-up pants.

The reality star wore the hard-to-miss ensemble while attending the Lakers vs Cavaliers game Sunday in LA.

Is it just us or is it kind of random to pair the sexy pants with a bulky Yeezus sweatshirt? We're not sure we like it.

While there, Kourt also took the time to pose with James F. Goldstein, an NBA "superfan" and millionaire who attends over 100 games per season.

Also random, but Kourtney looked happy to be seen with him, so whatever!

A Louis Vuitton mini backpack and clear strappy sandals completed the 37-year-old's look.

Thoughts???
