El Segundo, California – Following the Los Angeles Lakers’ practice on Wednesday (September 26), LeBron James explained to reporters why Eminem’s music was blaring over the speakers as practice came to a close.
According to USA Today, James explained, “Today’s ‘White Boy Wednesdays.’ Seriously. You’re laughing, but today’s ‘White Boy Wednesdays,’ so only white boy music day, which I enjoy. I love Eminem, but it wasn’t just Eminem. We had a lot of good music today.”
“It’s a universal thing, right?’’ he asked reporters. “It’s just like Taco Tuesdays. It’s a [expletive] thing. You guys look at me crazy when I said, it like, ‘Oh, [expletive], ‘White Boy Wednesdays.”

From the moment Kamikaze was released, James has been outspoken about his love for Em’s 10th studio album.
“Now if y’all think this @Eminem “Kamikaze” album isn’t [fire emojis] you’re just hating and incompetent of lyrics/cadence/breakdown of his raps,” he tweeted on August 31. “Oh and he putting quite a few in a body bag too.”
