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

Lakers star LeBron James says he will not have a social justice message on the back of his jersey when the league resumes July 30. Said James: "Just something that didn't seriously resonate with my mission, with my goal."

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.

LeBron James says his thoughts on social justice can't be contained on the back of a basketball jersey. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar won't wear one of the NBA-approved social justice messages on the back of his jersey when the NBA resumes competition later this month in the Orlando bubble. ''It was no disrespect to the list that was handed down to all the players,'' James said Saturday in a confernece call from Florida.
