[Ed. – Doesn’t his civic pride just make you feel warm and tingly all over?]
NBA star LeBron James on Thursday said that he supports Goodyear, the Ohio-based tire company that has faced calls for boycotts from President Trump.
James said he remains aware of “what Goodyear means to our city,” referring to his hometown of Akron, Ohio.
“We don’t bend, and we don’t break for nobody. So we’re not worried about that,” James said. “Not only has Goodyear been great for my city, for the history of my city, but the country and what they represented. It’s an unbelievable brand, unbelievable history. We stand strong and always unite, especially my city.
“We’ve always felt like we’ve been counted out being a small city, and that’s what rallies us even more and makes us even stronger. So shout-out, salute to all the workers, men and women, over the course of their history and to the city of Akron.”
