Monday night, December 8th Lebron James and Kyrie Irving faced off the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclay Center, where both teams showed solidarity towards the Eric Garner Family.
Lebron states, “It’s just for us to make a statement to understand what we’re going through as a society,” James said when asked about the T-shirt. “I’ve been quoted over and over about what’s going on as far as it’s more of a notion to the family, more than anything. Obviously, as a society we have to do better. We have to be better for one another. It doesn’t matter what race you are. It’s more of a shout out to the family more than anything, because they’re the ones that should be getting all the energy and effort.”
