LeBron James Ignoring National Anthem Sparked Outrage
LeBron James is being criticized online for disregarding the national anthem.
The Lakers star saw his son Bronny play in his first college game after his heart episode in the summer.
Bronny fell at practice in July and was diagnosed with a congenital heart abnormality.
James often watches his kids play. Last season, Bronny committed to USC, while James' middle child, Bryce, plays for Sierra Canyon School, Bronny's alma mater.
James watches his daughter Zhuri play volleyball. He's being criticized for entering the Galen Center on Tuesday to watch Bronny play.
James entered the arena as The Star-Spangled Banner played and sat in his chair without removing his hat, as shown in a viral video. He stands near the end of the video.
Luca Evans, an Orange County Register reporter, shared the film on X. Collin Rugg posted it on his Twitter and added:
"LeBron James enters the basketball arena and sits throughout the National Anthem.
