Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James has never been afraid to voice his opinion about what is happening in the United States and the world. He’s also a known advocate of civil rights leader Colin Kaepernick and has taken a stance against President Donald Trump.
Ahead of his team’s preseason game against the Sacramento Kings, James was seen heading into the Staples Center wearing a Kaepernick shirt.

This is certainly James’ way of saying that he still stands with Kaepernick after bolting the Cleveland Cavaliers for Hollywood in free agency.
Already looking to make his name known within the entertainment industry, James’ career move to Southern California brings him closer to like-minded individuals with similar political beliefs.
He’s now making it clearer than ever where he stands.
