Stephen Jackson, a 14-year NBA veteran, who hasn’t played in the league since the 2013/14 season, defends Lakers star LeBron James after his comments on China:

“He’s done so much off the court. We can’t let this one incident when we knew he was coming from a good place [destroy his reputation]. He was coming from a good place, he might not know everything he’s talking about but we know LeBron, and it’s never coming from a bad place. I would stand to say that,” Jackson said.
