The 2016 ESPYS brought together the best athletes this century has seen all in one room. The 2016 National champs Cleveland Cavaliers showed up in a mighty way being a part of power speeches and winning the ESPY Award for Best Team.
Carmelo Anthony, Dwayne Wade, Chris Paul, and Lebron James stand together to speak while the world watches as fathers, husbands, sons, and brothers to address the lives of African American men and women whom have lost their lives at the hands of Police.
“The system is broken, the problems are not new, and the violence is not new racial divide is not new, but the urgency to create change is at an all time high.”
Athletes use their platform to promoting change. Three time National Champ and MVP Lebron James says,
“Its time to look in the mirror and ask ourselves, what are we doing to create change.”
“Tonight we’ll honor Muhhamid Ali, The GOAT but to do his legacy any justice lets use this moment as a call to action for all profession athletes to educate ourselves, explore these issues, speak up, use our influence and renounce all violence. Go back to our communities and invest our time, our resources, help rebuild them, help strengthen them, help change them. WE ALL HAVE TO DO BETTER.”
