Michelle Beadle revealed recently that LeBron James openly wanted her to be fired from her job with ESPN before she left the network, and she says LeBron and his camp hold a grudge against her to this day.
Beadle made the surprising claim last month that James tried to get ESPN to fire her. She said it was awkward and that she was “honored” to even be on LeBron’s mind. As for why the Los Angeles Lakers star had an issue with her, Beadle speculated that it was because she mocked him over “The Decision” like so many other members of the media.
Beadle elaborated further on the “House of Strauss” podcast with Ethan Strauss this week. She said LeBron wanted her removed from “NBA Countdown” and had a specific person whom he wanted to replace her.
