James scored his fourth triple-double in the past five games and the Cavaliers defeated the Wizards 106-99.

Though James opted not to explicitly state Trump’s name during his address to press after the game, it’s quite clear who his commentary is directed towards. James has unequivocally been one of Trump’s harshest critics in the entertainment industry.

“Obviously we know where we are,” he told reporters on Sunday. “And we know who’s at the helm here.”

He continued, “We’re not going to let one person dictate to us, as Americans, how beautiful and powerful we are as a people.”

He added, “I will in my voice, I will in my passion, I will in my money, I will in my resources to my youth and my inner city and outside my inner city to let these kids know that there is hope, there is greater walks of life, and not one individual, no matter if it’s the president of the United States ... can stop your dreams from becoming a reality.”
