Elsewhere on Instagram, LeBron took to the comment section of a post that touched on the hypocrisy of people trolling the younger Wade in comparison to seemingly no one having an issue with Bill Belichick’s son being a coach for the New England Patriots. 

“FACTS!!!” LeBron wrote. “I’m so sick of people and their opinions on shit that ain’t got nothing to do with them!!”

LeBron’s response arrives after some people were criticizing Zaire, claiming he was only drafted by Salt Lake City Stars due to his father having an ownership stake in the Jazz.

According to The Salt Lake Tribune, Zaire, who was reportedly the 296th-ranked prospect in the 2021 recruiting class, was the 10th overall pick in the G League draft. He previously attended Sierra Canyon along with Bronny James.
