LeBron James has always been a fan of the Dallas Cowboys, even stating that the team offered him a contract during the 2011 NBA lockout. However, in recent years, his allegiance has looked to move toward some new clubs. Due to this, the supporters are questioning if his love for the Cowboys still exists. LeBron stated, “I had to sit down on the Cowboys, man”. He said that he was dissatisfied with the apparent danger for the players.

Due to Colin Kaepernick’s nonviolent protest during the national anthem, the athletes might lose their position in the club if they joined in. James felt this position insulting and opted to leave the Cowboys, voicing his worries about the organization’s approach to players’ free expression. He recently came live on Instagram and spoke about his feelings toward the Cowboys. James stated, “I know we gotta lot of Cowboy fans in America. I AM NOT ONE OF THEM.”

He further added by showing love to his new favorite team, the San Francisco 49ers. James said, “I’m going with the 49ers. Shoutout to the 49ers”. His newly found affection toward this team seems to be because of the 49ers running back, Christian McCaffrey. The 49ers have gained massive popularity in large part from McCaffrey’s outstanding performance in the 35-16 victory over the Arizona Cardinals.
