WATCH: NBA stars open ESPYs urging end to police brutality, racial profiling, gun violence

Credit: ESPYs/Screen CaptureArticle By Andrae Allen // EEW Magazine News

NBA all-stars, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, and LeBron James opened up The 2016 ESPYs Wednesday night with a powerfully timely message.

The four African-American athletes stood on stage at the Microsoft Theater and addressed police brutality, the value of black and brown lives and urged all of us to “do better.”

Carmelo acknowledged that the racial divide in America is nothing new, but the “urgency to create change is at an all-time high.” Chris named athletes like Jackie Robinson and Muhammad Ali, who stood up for what was right.

Paul, nephew of a police officer, recited the names of several black men who have been killed, most by guns. “We all feel helpless and frustrated by the violence,” James said.

Dwyane asked superstars in the crowd to follow in these great men’s footsteps, saying, “As athletes, it’s on us to challenge each other to do even more than what we already do in our own communities.”

LeBron ended the speech by inspiring everyone to take action, educate themselves, give back and get involved in their local communities. The 2016 NBA Finals MVP then finished with, “We all have to do better.”
