LeBron James continues to make his voice heard amid the social unrest in the U.S. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar has always been outspoken when it comes to issues of race and discrimination. But with America looking like they’re on the brink of change in some way or the other, the three-time NBA champion has remained at the forefront and has even gotten involved in a project to protect the black vote.
James spoke to Bloomberg’s Jason Kelly in an interview this week and claimed he wants to see everyone get better breaks from life, not just blacks.
“I speak about things that I’m knowledgeable about, that I’m educated on,” he said. “And at the end of the day, right is right, and wrong is wrong. I want the betterment of people—no matter skin color, no matter race, no matter anything.”
LeBron James is also one of the athletes who is very much for the NBA restarting next month. This has been a bit of an issue as of late, with several players opposed and his teammate Avery Bradley recently opting to sit out.
Free agent JR Smith is understood to be the leading candidate to replace the point guard.
