Sources close to LeBron James have confirmed that the Cleveland Cavaliers star will play basketball next year in the same arena that hosted the Republican National Convention, leading many to speculate: is LeBron endorsing Donald Trump?

LeBron has not outwardly denied endorsing Trump, which many consider to be an intentional gesture, or, “reverse Cruz.”

LeBron’s reported support of Trump is nothing new: the 2016 Finals MVP has played nine seasons in Trump’s RNC venue, along with four seasons in the state that gave George W. Bush in the presidency in 2000.

Also of note, LeBron was born in the state hosting the Republican National Convention.
