LeBron James wants to buy WNBA team from Kelly Loeffler after Senate loss

Kelly Loeffler lost her Georgia senate runoff on Tuesday – and now LeBron James wants to take away her WNBA team, too.

Loeffler, who lost the special election to Raphael Warnock on Tuesday night, is the co-owner of the Atlanta Dream WNBA team. Her presence in the socially progressive league has been wildly controversial – she has publicly opposed the Black Lives Matter movement and protests against police brutality, even feuding with her own players on the subject.

Jumping at the first opportunity, the Lakers star took a shot at the outgoing senator.

“Think I’m gone put together an ownership group for the The Dream. Whose in? #BlackVotesMatter,” Jame tweeted early Wednesday,

Players have called for Loeffler to sell the team on multiple occasions, and Dream players campaigned against her, photographing themselves in “Vote Warnock” shirts during the 2020 WNBA bubble over the summer. LeBron included the photo in his tweet.

Despite the tweet, there’s no indication that Loeffler has any interest in selling the team, and has resisted all calls to do so in the past.
