*LeBron James used his first postgame news conference from Orlando’s COVID bubble to bring attention to Breonna Taylor.
“First of all, I want to continue to shed light on justice for Breonna Taylor and to her family and everything that’s going on with that situation,” the Los Angeles Lakers star said, following his team’s 108-104 loss to the Dallas Mavericks. Thursday’s preseason game at Disney World was the team’s first game after a four-month layoff due to the coronavirus pandemic. James also played with Breonna Taylor’s name on his shoes.
“We want the cops arrested who committed that crime,” James continued to reporters. “As one of the leaders of this league, I want her family to know, and I want the state of Kentucky to know that we feel for her and we want justice. That’s what it’s all about. What’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong.”
