Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James is one of the most outspoken anti-Trumpers in the National Basketball League, but is he so anti-Trump that he would snub a fan for wearing a MAGA cap? A new video has people asking precisely that.
The video in question was taken during Game 3 against the Boston Celtics when James was discarding one of his used towels. Many front row fans are thrilled to get a player’s cast off for their sports collection. But as James neared the sidelines, it appears that he purposefully bypassed a fan who was wearing one of President Trump’s famous, bight red “Make America Great Again” hats, the Big Lead reported.
It appears that James looked in the ball cap-wearing man’s direction only to turn away from him and throw the towel to someone else.

Of course, we can’t know for sure if the three-time NBA champ actually saw the MAGA hat. Then again, he was only a few feet away, making it a bit hard to believe he missed it especially given his dislike for President Trump.
Finally, one wonders if that basketball fan were wearing a “hope and change” hat, a Hillary cap, or a “Sí se puede!” hat, would James have so blatantly overlooked him? It is easy to doubt he would.
