The NBA preseason kicked off on Monday with all of our favorite ballers participating in media day. Superstar, LeBron James, who is known for his involvement in community affairs spoke out once again about police brutality and how he fears for his 12-year-old son.
“I look at my son being four years removed from driving his own car and it’s a scary thought right now to think if my son gets pulled over,” he said.
“It’s a scary a** situation that if my son calls me and says he’s been pulled over,” continues James. “I’m not that confident that things are going to go well and my son’s gonna’ return home, and my son is just starting the sixth grade.”
When asked about whether he will join in on Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protests, he showed support to Kaepernick but highlight that he will not participate. He does, however, want to keep the conversation going and is calling for further education on the matter.
Unfortunately, LeBron James dropped the “All Lives Matter” bomb which had Twitter on the fence.
LEBRON JAMES IS A DAMN COON, I DON'T CARE IF HE'S PAYING FOR KIDS COLLEGES IN FRICKEN AKRON, OHIO.

LeBron James just donated $41.8M to the University of Akron in Ohio, giving 1,100 kids a full 4-yr scholarship but y'all calling him a coon.

I absolutely guarantee LeBron James version of saying "All Lives Matter" will be taken out of context and Cam Newtonized.
