LeBron James slams Donald Trump’s ‘locker room talk’ defense

LeBron James can’t even bring himself to say his name.

The Cleveland Cavs superstar was asked Wednesday about Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s claims that his “grab them by the p—y” comments on a hot “Access Hollywood” mic were just typical locker room banter.

“What is locker room talk to me? It’s not what that guy said,” James said about Trump.

“We don’t disrespect women in no shape or fashion in our locker room … that never comes up,” the four-time NBA MVP said. “I’ve got a mother-in-law, a wife, a mom and a daughter. Those conversations just don’t go on in our locker room.

“What does go on in our locker room is sporting events that happened the night before, family, about strategies we have that night. (We talk) about a highlight that may have happened – a home run in the bottom of the 9th or an alley-oop dunk from a player the night before. That’s what happens in our locker room.”

The three-time NBA champion endorsed Hillary Clinton for president earlier this month.

“I support Hillary because she will build on the legacy of my good friend, President Barack Obama,” James wrote in an op-ed published on Oct. 2 in the Business Insider. “I believe in what President Obama had done for our country and support her commitment to continuing the legacy.”
