James posted a tweet with the officer’s picture and wrote, “You’re next #ACCOUNTABILITY.”
The Los Angeles Lakers star later deleted the tweet, saying it was being used to “create more hate.”
“…No officer wants to take a life, but I’ll tell you one thing, that officer saved a life and he’s a hero,” McBride said.
The NBA has not responded.
