If you were expecting LeBron James to join in on the protest of the National Anthem…you might as well have a seat. (pun intended)
During Cavs Media Day in Independence, Ohio, the NBA champ said respects Colin Kaepernick and his right to protest, but when it comes to the National Anthem, he’s going to stand because that’s what he believes in.
Me, standing for the national anthem is something I will do. That’s who I am. That’s what I believe in.
But that doesn’t mean I don’t respect and don’t agree with what Colin Kaepernick is doing.
You have the right to voice your opinion, stand for your opinion, and he’s doing it in the most peaceful way I’ve ever seen someone do something.
So, I can respect that.
