NBA champion LeBron James is standing with Colin Kaepernick and gave his thoughts on Kap's recent settlement with the NFL.

Speaking to press at the NBA All-Star Celebrity weekend in Charlotte, NC, Lebron said:

“I stand with Kap. I kneel with Kap. I feel what he was talking about, nobody wanted to listen to. Nobody ever really wanted to actually understand where he was coming from.”

He continued:

“Anybody that would sacrifice their livelihood for the better of all of us, I can respect that. And he’s done that... I hope it’s a hell of a lot of money.”

Kap recently settled his collusion case with the NFL for an undisclosed amount. His settlement is subject to a confidentiality clause.
