LeBron James: I won't talk about Morey and China again

“When the issue comes up and you feel passionate about it and you feel like it’s something you want to talk about, then so be it,” James told reporters following practice Tuesday at the Lakers’ facility. “I also don’t think every issue should be everybody’s problem as well. When things come up, there’s multiple things that we haven’t talked about that have happened in our own country that we don’t bring up.”…

“I’m trying to make sure the inner-city kids that grow up in my hometown can have a brighter future and look at me as an inspiration to get out of the hellhole of the inner city,” James said. “We don’t talk about those stories enough. We want to talk about so many other things as well. There’s issues all over the world. So I think the best thing we can do is if you feel passionate about it, talk about it. If you don’t have a lot of knowledge about it or quite understand it, I don’t think you should talk about it because it puts you in a tough position.”…

“I won’t talk about it again. I’d be cheating my teammates by continuing to harp on something that won’t benefit us,” James said. “We’re trying to win a championship. That’s what we’re here for. We’re not politicians. It’s a huge political thing. But we are leaders and we can step up at times. I’m not saying at this particular time but if you don’t feel like you should speak on things, you shouldn’t have to.”
