KINGS RECOGNIZE KINGS: LeBron James Proves He Has Colin Kaepernick's Back

Of course, a King recognizes a King.  See LeBron James' public display of support for Colin Kaepernick inside...

LeBron James isn't taking a knee during the national anthem, but he still has former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick's back.

Last night, the Los Angeles Lakers player walked into the Staples Center before a preason game making a bold statement. King James rocked a Nike t-shirt with "Kaepernick" written across the upper back.

 

King James posted pictures of himself in the t-shirt on his Instagram that he captioned, "KAEP Drip @kaepernick7 #MoreThanAnAthlete"

Both LeBron and Colin have deals with Nike, however, King James wearing that shirt is bigger than that.

"I wore a Kaepernick shirt tonight, one, because it's Nike and I'm a Nike guy," King James explained. "And then, two, I support Kap. I've always supported Kap and what he stands for and what he believes in."

This isn't the first time King James showed Colin support. While accepting the “Icon 360” award at Harlem's Fashion Row Awards last month, LeBron praised Nike for backing Colin amid all of the controversy during his acceptance speech.

A few years ago (when Colin first launched his protest), LeBron spoke to reporters revealing he supported Colin and his efforts even though he decided he would not be taking a knee.

Love seeing YBF celebs stan and STAND behind one another, especially during times like this.  Write that ish down, Kanye.
