LeBron James says his snubbing of a Trump hotel isn't 'a statement'


There are three things in life that are guaranteed: death , taxes, and LeBron James always stays at the team hotel. 

Well, that is, until recently. For the first time in his 14-year career, the Cavaliers star will forego kicking it with the rest of the Cleveland roster. James has opted out of staying at the Trump-named hotel in SoHo, where the Cavs have a contract.

James, however, made it clear that he's not trying to make a political statement against the president-elect, reports the New York Daily News

James's choice has drawn the ire of some on social media. 

"It would be the same if I went to a restaurant and decided to eat chicken and not steak," said James. 

The Cavaliers forward actively campaigned for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. 

When asked about the president-elect, James said that he hopes that Trump is one of the best presidents ever, for everyone's sake. 

James's name has been invoked for political reason on social media. 

The Carrier union boss said that Trump 'lied his ass off'
