LeBron James wore sneakers with the message “equality” on them for the game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics. The popular Basketballer drops a message of peace through his Instagram account as he writes, “Together we’ll persevere through all adversity,negativity and turn it into happiness and love.”
LeBron, an out-spoken critic of Donald Trump and also a social activist has never been quiet in the face of oppression and inequality. And during the national anthem, him and other cavaliers players stood while linking arms while the Celtics players stood as normal.
This comes after NBA commissioner, Adams Silver, said he expects every NBA player to stand during the national anthem.
