LeBron James: Donald Trump no loss to NBA

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James says that basketball will not miss Donald Trump after the US president said he turns off games featuring social justice protests.

Trump has accused players of "disrespect" by taking a knee during the national anthem.

"I really don't think the basketball community are sad about losing his viewership," said James.

"I can speak for all of us who love the game and we could [not] care less."
