Michelle Beadle Reveals How LeBron James Tried To Get Her Fired

Michelle Beadle is no longer with ESPN although she was with the network for over 10 years. Throughout that time, Beadle got to host SportsNation as well as NBA Countdown. During that time, she turned out to be a controversial figure as not everyone was a fan of her commentary, which typically came with quite a bit of bias.

Recently, Beadle sat down with a former ESPN colleague of hers, Paul Pierce, on a podcast for The Athletic. During the episode, Beadle came out and dropped a bombshell, stating that LeBron James attempted to get her fired from ESPN back in 2010 after she had some harsh words to say about “The Decision.” Beadle was confused by the ordeal, as many others had also made similar comments.
