Unfortunately for LeBron James much of Europe doesn’t really care about basketball, so when he runs his gums about world politics he knows absolutely nothing about, his star power doesn’t just automatically make him right like it does on America’s twitter.
So when international soccer superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic and LeBron James recently got into it, it didn’t go exactly like LeBron had probably envisioned. In fact, it was pretty embarrassing for the LA Lakers star with a losing record in the NBA Finals.
"LeBron is phenomenal at what he's doing, but I don't like when people have some kind of status, they go and do politics at the same time what they're doing. do what you're good at."

Ibrahimovic’s main point was that “I don’t like when people have some kind of status, they go and do politics at the same time what they’re doing. do what you’re good at.”
LeBron fired back, saying that his defending the Chinese government and denouncing the police officer that saved a girl from being stabbed to death by Ma’Khia Bryant came from “a very educated mind.”
Ibrahimovic then put LeBron in his place one final time, with most of the world giving this round to Zlatan.
“I said that we are not politicians. Politics divides people. If I wanted to be a politician, I would do politics. We should only do what we’re good at. Sports and politics are two different categories. If you are intelligent, you understand.”
