San Francisco 49ers, Basketball, and Cleveland Cavaliers: LeBron James Says Colin Kaepernick ls Being Blackballed Out Of the NFL @balleralert zar LeBron James Says Colin Kaepernick Is Being Blackballed Out Of the NFLโ€“ blogged by @MsJennyb โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € On Sunday, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBronJames showed his support for ColinKaepernick and his fight for social justice. The baller, who has been deemed the โ€œgreatest basketball player on the planet,โ€ agreed with the notion that league owners are blackballing the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ€œI love football, but Iโ€™m not part of the NFL. I donโ€™t represent the NFL,โ€ James said, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN. โ€œI donโ€™t know their rules and regulations. But I do know Kap is getting a wrongdoing, I do know that. Just watching, heโ€™s an NFL player. Heโ€™s an NFL player and you see all these other quarterbacks out there and players out there that get all these second and third chances that are nowhere near as talented as him. It just feels like heโ€™s been blackballed out of the NFL. So, I definitely do not respect that.โ€ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € According to Bleacher Report, since Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the Niners earlier this year, 42 other quarterbacks have signed contracts. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ€œThe only reason I could say heโ€™s not on a team is because the way he took a knee. Thatโ€™s the only reason,โ€ James said of Kaepernickโ€™s protest of police brutality during the national anthem. The movement began during the 2016 NFL preseason and has since expanded throughout different sports and continued through the 2017-18 season, despite Kaepernickโ€™s unemployment. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ€œI watch football every Sunday, every Thursday, every Monday night.
