In the debut episode of his new HBO show “The Shop” that aired Tuesday night, Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James said white and black athletes are held to a different standard in the United States. As part of a broader discussion with a group of prominent athletes and entertainers — Odell Beckham Jr., Draymond Green and Snoop Dogg among them — James described a hypothetical situation in which a star white athlete and a star black athlete are approached by a fan while out in public with their families and asked for a picture.

Asked if he had a chip on his shoulder, Bamba told The Athletic: “Draymond Green’s a guy who I look up to and admire, and I love his playing style and how he’s not from Harlem, but he plays like he’s from Harlem, you know what I mean? With just his swagger and his mentality. And he remembers every single guy, every single team that passed up on him in that draft order, and it’s just more motivation and more fuel.” Before the draft, Bamba appeared on ESPN’s The Jump and was asked if he’d like to play for the Knicks, his hometown team, which had the ninth pick in the draft. “That’s funny,” Bamba replied. “I didn’t know the Knicks were in contention to be the No. 1 pick.”
Dorsey: But it isn’t just the commentators, players and teams. That’s the surface level and that’s who a lot of people follow, but we have some of the most amazing fans on #NBATwitter too. And some of the fans have direct connections to the NBA. My favorite account – and one that I think makes #NBATwitter so special – is Draymond Green’s mother, @BabersGreen. She has found all the other NBA moms on Twitter and she trash-talks them during games! She also trash-talks her own son during games! Watching a game with her tweeting about what’s going on with Draymond or with other moms is just entertaining. The basketball game is amazing in itself, but to see her comment on it just makes it funny. I think it’s a good companion to the event and to what you’re watching. It also, again, has that feeling of making the world smaller. We’re all watching this game at once; we all saw the same thing and here’s how we all feel about it – whether we’re outraged or we’re excited – it is that we’re of the crowd in many cases.
