LeBron on protests: My voice is more important than my knee

LeBron on protests: My voice is more important than my knee”

Over the weekend, LeBron James called President Trump "a bum" in a tweet on Saturday after the President pulled back an invitation to the Golden State Warriors to visit the White House. "It's the land of the free". It brings people together like no other.

"Because the people run this country".

"And we're not gonna let - I'm not gonna let, while I have this platform - to let one individual, no matter the power, no matter the impact that he should have or she should have, ever use sport as a platform to divide us". "You're either with us or against us", he said.

"I salute Colin for being as powerful as he was", James said. "Probably should just be respectful".

The peaceful protests that the Cleveland Cavaliers star was referring to took place on Sunday, after President Donald Trump called for the National Football League to "fire or suspend" those who kneel during "The Star-Spangled Banner".

The good kid from the Goodyear City, LeBron James, spoke on calling the president a bum, shared thoughts on his free agency and the #TakeAKnee phenomenon. We know this is the greatest country in the world.

James said even though OH voted for Trump, it would be wrong for him to turn his back and not continue to try and help the state through his off-the-court work. You can't stop him from making millions of dollars.

"As I have this platform, I will lend my voice, my passion, my money to let these kids know there is hope, greater walks of life". "Because I would be even more at wrong if I started to pound the people of Ohio".

"You're either with us or against us".

"If (a conversation) happens or not, I'm pretty sure you guys won't know about it", Irving said.

Media days in the NBA are a mixture of basketball-related interviews, photo sessions and some frivolity.

"It's like every time he opens his mouth, it's like, 'Oh, really?'" Haslem said. "Like if my son went on another team and we're playing against each other", he said. In Miami Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra said he would talk to players about how they want to respond to social topics later this week at their training camp in Boca Raton, Florida. "So we will have a discussion about it", Spoelstra said. They could have been or they could not have been, but that doesn't mean it was the right choice. Magic owner Rich DeVos's daughter-in-law, Betsy DeVos, is the education secretary.

"... I tried to give him as much of the DNA as I could, because at some point, when he was ready to take over the keys I was ready to give them to him". "This is something we need to evaluate, speak to our National Basketball Association peers about". "He uses sports to try to divide us".

James made it clear that will continue.

No athlete has come out stronger in his condemnation of President Donald Trump than LeBron James. "Can we sit up here and say I'm trying to make a difference?"
