During a global pandemic, we as a country that should have been coming together as one, but we are divided once again because of the dislike and hate of one’s hue. Seriously? 400+ years. Yes there has been progress and we must recognize (that) but we have been told that it takes time. Our great grandparents said it. Grandparents said it. Parents said it. WE ARE SAYING IT!! Enough is enough. Stand for something or fall for everything.” LeBron, AD and members of the Lakers roster posted this message on IG. pic.twitter.com/A0AgXfnWmp— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) June 1, 2020Other Lakers players to share the message on Instagram included Danny Green, Dwight Howard, JaVale McGee, Alex Caruso, Quinn Cook, Jared Dudley and Talen Horton-Tucker.MORE: Michael Jordan comments on death of George Floyd Had a heavy heart last night. This just ain’t right. Violence is never the answer on both sides, but how the hell do you want us to say enough is enough? Kneel? Not good enough? March? Not enough? Say please? This is all disturbing that it’s gotten to this. We all say as public figures we need to use our platforms to help inspire & give positive messages, but I have to ask the question to myself… Is it enough? During a global pandemic we as a country that should have been coming together as one, but we are divided once again because of the dislike and hate of one’s hue. Seriously? 400+ years. Yes there has been progress and we must recognize but we have been told that it takes time. Our great grandparents said it. Grandparents said it. Parents said it. WE ARE SAYING IT!! Enough is enough. Stand for something or fall for everything. ✊🏽 Please stay safe everyone!A post shared by Kyle Kuzma (@kuz) on May 31, 2020 at 11:09am PDTJames took it a step further on his Twitter account, sharing a video of a peaceful protest in Denver and criticizing the media’s portrayal of protests across the nation as being mostly violent.Media showing this???? I bet you they’re not. 🤦🏾‍♂️! You know why, cause this is unity, peaceful, beautiful and love! https://t.co/QkgH2SFmON— LeBron James (@KingJames) June 1, 2020 LeBron James, Anthony Davis and several of their Lakers teammates presented a united front on their Instagram stories Sunday. The message was simple: “If you ain’t (with) us, we ain’t (with) y’all.”James, Davis and Co. were, of course, referencing the protests against police brutality that have taken the United States by storm following the death of George Floyd under the knee of a former Minneapolis police officer.last_img
