LeBron James makes first statement after NBA players vote to resume season
LeBron took to the mean streets of Twitter to express his feelings:
Change doesn’t happen with just talk!! It happens with action and needs to happen NOW! For my @IPROMISESchool kids, kids and communities across the country, it’s on US to make a difference. Together. That's why your vote is @morethanavote ✊🏾 #BlackLivesMatter

It’s a bit cryptic, but the message came shortly after news broke that the NBA decided to resume the season. Reports from the evening prior more than inferred that The King was spearheading a movement to boycott the entire season. This decision by the league obviously goes counter that preferred method.
LeBron James, Lakers, NBA Relationship
Only time will tell what this means, if anything, in regards to his relationship with the NBA. That being said, LeBron James is the biggest face of the league, often using his platform to speak on injustices. Now that he plays for a storied franchise like the Los Angeles Lakers, and his stardom burns bright beyond just sports, Adam Silver best make sure he and Bron Bron remain in similar footing moving forward.
Nonetheless, for fans, the league returning to action after a couple of days off will be welcomed. While most can appreciate the reason for the boycott, selfishly speaking, many just want to see the Lakers and LeBron James on the hardwood.
