LeBron ayaw sa ‘justice message’
Kung ang ibang National Basketball Association (NBA) players magsusuot ng social justice messages sa likod ng kanilang jerseys sa pagbabalik ng liga sa Hulyo 30, ayaw namang makiisa ni Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James.
“I actually didn’t go with a name on the back of my jersey. It’s no disrespect to the list that was handed out to all the players. I commend anyone that decides to put something on the back of their jersey…” saad ni James kay Mike Trudell ng Spectrum SportsNet via Twitter.
“It’s just something that didn’t seriously resonate with my mission, with my goal. I would have loved to have a say so on what would have went on the back of my jersey. I had a couple things in mind but I wasn’t part of that process and that’s OK,” hirit pa ng three-time NBA champion.
Ilan sa mga inaprubahang social justice messages ng NBA at ng National Basketball Players’ Association (NBPA) na ilalagay sa likod ng mga jersey ay ang Black Lives Matter, Say Their Names, Peace, Justice, Equality, Education Reform at iba pa. (Janiel Abby Toralba)
