James says he was not consulted on the league's list of approved social justice messages and will instead stick with his name

Lakers All-Star forward LeBron James says he'll keep working on social reforms but putting a preapproved slogan on back of his jersey will not be one.
He didn't like anything on the NBA's approved list of jersey messages.
