LeBron James backs Colin Kaepernick after NFL settlement
LeBron James is one of the most powerful voices in sports, and he’s not afraid to speak about social issues, so it’s no real surprise to hear him back Colin Kaepernick.
James weighed in on Kaepernick’s NFL settlement Saturday morning, and said that many of his critics and detractors weren’t paying attention to the real message he was trying to send.

Kaepernick has found wide support in the NBA community. It’s not at all surprising that James would back him and not be afraid to speak publicly about it.
Kaepernick settled his collusion case against the NFL on Friday, with rumors indicating he got a huge sum from the league. Unfortunately, we’ll likely never know the extent of what might have turned up in said case.
