Things just keep getting worse…
NBA superstar LeBron James just admitted that he hopes he and other basketball players made disgraced quarterback Colin Kaepernick “proud” by kneeling for the national anthem.
According to the Washington Examiner, “I hope we made Kaep proud,” James stated after defeating the Los Angeles Clippers.
“Kaep was someone who stood up when times wasn’t comfortable, when people didn’t understand. People refused to listen to what he was saying,” James stated.
“It had absolutely nothing to do about the flag,” he went on to say. “He explained that, and their ears were closed. People never listened. They refused to listen. And I did, and a lot of people in the black community did listen to him. And we just thank him for sacrificing everything that he did.”
