LeBron James will not wear a social justice message on the back of his jersey

So far, 285 out of a possible 350 eligible NBA players have picked out a social justice message to use on the back of their jerseys.

LeBron James will have his last name on the back of his jersey in lieu of a social justice message when the NBA season resumes.

James added that he had no input on the list of messages that players were able to choose from: “It was 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. It’s just something that didn’t really 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, which is OK. I’m absolutely OK with that. I don’t need to have something on the back of my jersey for people to understand my mission or know what I’m about and what I’m here to do”.
