"First of all, I want to continue to shed light on justice for Breonna Taylor and to her family and everything that's going on with that situation", James told the media after a scrimmage against the Dallas Mavericks.
James - along with the rest of the National Basketball Association - is pushing for social justice during the league's return to play ... especially for Taylor, who was killed by 3 Louisville police officers in her home in March.
James also spoke about George Floyd, 46, an unarmed Black man killed by Minneapolis police earlier this year during an arrest for allegedly using a counterfeit $20 bill, police said.
He explained that many players had discussed using the National Basketball Association restart to bring attention to racial injustice.
"A lot of people kind of use this analogy, talking about Black Lives Matter as a movement".
"When you're Black, it's not a movement", James said.
"We want the cops arrested who committed that crime". When you wake up, and you're Black, that is what it is.
"Yes we know your job is to ask us about basketball questions". "Breonna Taylor, rest in peace". We're gonna continue to harp on that.
In a press conference on July 22, Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma dedicated his six minutes with the media to bring attention to Taylor and demand justice for her wrongful death, according to ESPN. Louisville police officers had executed a no-knock search warrant and used a battering ram to forcefully enter the young woman's apartment. A gunfight ensued after her boyfriend opened fire on the intruders. After a short exchange with police, Walker fired his gun in self-defense, saying he thought his home was being broken into, according to police.
While the four police officers involved in George Floyd's killing have all been fired and criminally charged, only one of the three officers involved in Taylor's killing has been fired and none have been charged.
It was later revealed that the police had been looking for two men who they believed were selling drugs out of a house located near Taylor's home.
One of the officers, Brett Hankison, was sacked in June amid intense pressure from the public.
