LEBRON JAMES RESPONDS TO HIS HOME BEING VANDALIZEDJune 2, 2017
Lebron James addressed the incident at a press conference later that day.
“No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you, being black in America is — it’s tough and we got a long way to go for us as a society and for us as African-Americans until we feel equal in America.”

In response to how the incident would affect his performance, he commented:
“I will be as focused as I can be on the job at hand tomorrow, but this is a situation where it just puts me back in place of what’s actually more important, and basketball’s not the most important thing in my life.”
Our thoughts are with Lebron and his family, and we’re wishing him all the best in the NBA Finals.
