LeBron James Wants to Buy Kelly Loeffler’s WNBA Team

'Think I'm gone put together an ownership group for the Dream'...

NBA star LeBron James suggested he would buy the professional women’s basketball team Sen. Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., co-owns after Loeffler lost her Senate race against Democratic candidate Raphael Warnock.

Loeffler bought the Atlanta Dream with co-owner Mary Brock in 2011, but several members of the team have vocally criticized her over her policies and support of President Trump.

In August, many of the players even wore T-shirts with the phrase “Vote Warnock” on them.

“When we realized what our owner was doing and how she was kind of using us and the Black Lives Matter movement for her political gain, we felt like we didn’t want to feel kind of lost as the pawns in this,” player Elizabeth Williams said at the time.

The players’ revolt led Loeffler to slam the league for caring more about politics than baseball.

“This is just more proof that the out-of-control cancel culture wants to shut out anyone who disagrees with them. It’s clear that the league is more concerned with playing politics than basketball,” Loeffler said in a statement. “It’s sad to see that there’s more interest in tearing our country apart than in solutions that bring us together. I’ll continue to defend American values and our flag, because this is not a game – it’s the future of our country.”

James has been an outspoken advocate for the Black Lives Matter movement and was recently dubbed the “Activist Athlete” by Sports Illustrated.
