Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, he has spoken out against Trump's immigration act:

"Diversity is what makes this country so great. We should all continue to speak up and fight for ideas that bring people together regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, religious beliefs or any other differences."

THR's story covers James winning the NAACP's Jackie Robinson award, which he received on the court in Cleveland on Feb. 1. It appears he made his comments on the executive order - which banned immigrants and refugees from seven countries with predominantly Muslim populations, and has since been frozen by a Washington state judge - in an interview with the publication.

James told THR that he's determined to continue using his platform to share his thoughts on political matters.

As protests continue to rage over President Trump's ban on immigrants and refugees from seven predominantly Muslim countries, James has calibrated his message to encourage peaceful dissent through free speech. "I am not in favor of this policy or any policy that divides and excludes people," he says. "I stand with the many, many Americans who believe this does not represent what the United States is all about. And we should continue to speak out about it."

We're going to be embroiled for the next several years in debates about whether LeBron James is the greatest basketball player of all time. And there's time for that, and it's a good debate. But what has always amazed me about LeBron James is that he's been every bit as good as we expected him to be. No player has ever gotten more hype at a younger age, and he's done nothing but live up to it.

Trump warns senators ‘looking to start World War III’

Now in his early 30s he's answered calls to become more than an athlete, to rise to the level of his popularity and use it for good. James has not shied from sharing his thoughts and trying to use his influence to change both his local community and opinions across the country. That's something Michael Jordan would never do.
