LeBron James will have his last name on the back of his jersey in lieu of a social justice message when the NBA season resumes.
James added that he had no input on the list of messages that players were able to choose from.
"It was no disrespect to the list that was handed out to all the players. I commend anyone that decides to put something on the back of their jersey. It's just something that didn't really seriously resonate with my mission, with my goal.
"I would have loved to have a say-so on what would have went on the back of my jersey. I had a couple things in mind, but I wasn't part of that process, which is OK. I'm absolutely OK with that. ... I don't need to have something on the back of my jersey for people to understand my mission or know what I'm about and what I'm here to do," said James.
285 out of a possible 350 eligible players picked out a social justice message to use on the back of their jerseys.
JaVale McGee recently said that he would use "Respect Us," while Kyle Korver will use "Black Lives Matter."
