LeBron James is in the headlines for all the wrong reasons this week, as the superstar forward posted a controversial message on his Instagram account. Even though the lyrics “We been getting that Jewish money, everything is Kosher,” come from a 21 Savage song, it sparked quite the debate on social media.

The four-time MVP quickly issued an apology for his actions.

Considering how James has one of the biggest followings in the entire world, making a mistake of this magnitude will infuriate many people. However, it appears he's cooperating with the league to make sure he takes the correct approach in this situation.

Public comments could result in fines, but it turns out that the NBA will not take any action against James, per ESPN insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

Ultimately the league feels that James' apology is genuine enough to not hand out any punishment.

Los Angeles is struggling of late, losing three of its last four contests.

With the Lakers in prime position to make the postseason with James, avoiding any major distractions will be crucial.
