LeBron has been increasingly outspoken about societal and even political topics within the latter years of his career, and his continued progressiveness in that regard has somewhat galvanized the rest of his league, the NBA, along with other athlete activists alike.

The formation of the group comes at a critical juncture 5 months prior to our next US election, one that will be between a surprising democratic candidate and a very polarizing republican incumbent.

“We feel like we’re getting some ears and some attention, and this is the time for us to finally make a difference,” James told the Times.

The group will be financed of course by the big bank account here, or rather “bigger” account, LeBron James, but also headed up by players like Trae Young, Jalen Rose, Alvin Kamara, and even Kevin Hart.

The organization will be dubbed “More Than A Vote” and work to encourage and support African-Americans to show up to the polls this year on November 3rd, as well as continuing to pursue solutions to various external factors affecting their communities disenfranchisement.

“Yes, we want you to go out and vote, but we’re also going to give you the tutorial,” James told the Times. “We’re going to give you the background of how to vote and what they’re trying to do, the other side, to stop you from voting.”
