NBA star LeBron James said has hit out at Donald Trump for having the time to insult him on Twitter
"[It] doesn't bother me at all. What bothers me is that he has time to even do that," the former Cleveland Cavaliers champion and new addition to the Los Angeles Lakers said.
When asked by The Hollywood Reporter if it irked him when the leader of the country said that about him - while voicing his preference for NBA legend Michael Jordan - James said: "No, because I'm not. That's like somebody saying I can't play ball".
James was responding to the US president claiming James was dumb in a 3 August tweet, which read: "Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, [CNN anchor] Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!"
