Several NBA players took to social media and reacted to UFC fighter Colby Covington calling out LeBron James.

Covington, who is a Donald Trump supporter and against the Black Lives Matter movement, called James a “spineless coward”.

“If you thought that was a beating, wait until November 3 when Donald Trump gets his hands on Sleepy Joe. That’s gonna be a landslide. I want to dedicate this fight to all the first responders. All the military out there.

This world wouldn’t be safe without you guys. You keep us safe, not these woke athletes. I’m sick of these woke athletes and these spineless cowards like LeBron James,” Covington said after his win on Saturday against Tyron Woodley.

For his part, NBA players like Kevin Durant, Austin Rivers and Michael Carter-Williams fired back at Covington for his comments.
