INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- LeBron James has been horrified at the videos of police shootings and violence hes seen over the past few months. Like many Americans, hes anxious for change.He says its not happening quickly enough.Im not here to ramp on America, thats not me, James told the Associated Press on Monday. Im not a politician, but Ive lived this life and Ive got a family and what scares me is my kids growing up in this society right now, where innocent lives are being taken and it seems like nothing is being done.James, who delivered an NBA title to title-starved Cleveland earlier this summer, spoke passionately about his concerns for his childrens future and other social topics to the AP and during a wider interview session as the Cavaliers held their first media day as defending champions.James said plans to stand during the national anthem and said he supports San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick, whose decision to kneel has sparked a heated national debate.Im all in favor of anyone, athlete or non-athlete, being able to express what they believe in in a peaceful manner and thats exactly what Colin Kaepernick is doing and I respect that, James said. When Im passionate about something Ill speak up on it, so me standing for the national anthem is something I will do. Thats who I am, thats what I believe in. But that doesnt mean I dont respect and dont agree with what Colin Kaepernick is doing.You have the right to voice your opinion, stand for your opinion and hes doing it in the most peaceful way Ive ever seen someone do something, James said.The three-time champion admires how Kaepernick has continued an important conversation James and his friends Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul helped further in July when they took the stage together at the ESPYs, ESPNs annual awards show, and decried violence against unarmed black men. The foursome also encouraged athletes to do more to support local police and improve communities.Kaepernicks protest has prompted some athletes to follow him and kneel or raise a closed fist during the anthem. James says he is troubled by criticism overshadowing the reasons behind the demonstrations. He said things dont seem to be improving, as evidenced by recent shootings captured on video in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Charlotte, North Carolina.Obviously, I know things dont happen overnight, but it doesnt seem like there is any change, he told the AP. We just want the conversation to continue to be, `Who are our leaders? Who are our true leaders that are going to help us change whats going on? Everyone is looking for that and no one knows.James recognizes he doesnt have the answers to very complex problems, but hes proud of his role in getting people to talk about them.We just wanted the conversation to continue to go, to understand that police brutality and killings and things of that nature of innocent people, its not the answer, he said.A father of three, James has been disturbed enough by recent shooting to fear the day his 12-year-old son, LeBron Jr., gets a drivers license and can be out on his own.You tell your kids if you just apply and if you just listen to the police that they will be respectful and it will work itself out, he said. You see these videos that continue to come out, and its a scary-ass situation that if my son calls me and says that hes been pulled over that Im not that confident that things are going to go well and my son is going to return home.The 31-year-old superstar takes personal pride in raising awareness among his peers on social causes, understanding the power of his fame. Through his foundation, James has given children in his hometown of Akron and elsewhere educational opportunities and more.Hes not recruiting others to help, but hopes his actions can inspire.Im not here to ask anybody else to do any more, he told the AP. Guys have a lot going on. I feel like Im doing all I can do -- and more -- to be in my community, to give back to my community, to lend my hand with my foundation with all the kids and just letting them know that there is a brighter tomorrow and America is great. Im doing as much as I can with these kids who look up to me. Pittsburgh Pirates Jerseys .

CANTON, Ohio -- Eddie DeBartolo Jr. is the only member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2016 who did not play in the NFL. He also wants everybody to know something else about him.?I have a confession to make: I could be the only inductee of this great Hall who didnt make his high school football team, DeBartolo said.To share this stage with these amazing gentlemen behind me is more than humbling. We all may be wearing the same jackets, but they have shoes that I could never, ever fill.DeBartolo played an instrumental role in turning the San Francisco 49ers from being one of the worst teams to one of the best teams on a regular basis. He hired Bill Walsh as coach and drafted Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana. The 49ers won five Super Bowls with DeBartolo as owner, who also had players such as Steve Young and safety Ronnie Lott. The 49ers won an average of 13 games from 1981 to 1998.DeBartolo was one of eight members of the 2016 class honored during Saturday nights Hall of Fame ceremony. He was inducted along with receiver Marvin Harrison, coach Tony Dungy, quarterback Brett Favre, linebacker Kevin Greene, offensive tackle Orlando Pace, quarterback Ken Stabler and offensive guard Dick Stanfel.Stabler and Stanfel were enshrined posthumously.Im standing here as a member of the Class of 2016, and no doubt its a great individual honor. No doubt it is, Greene said. But I must be honest, I am standing on the shoulders of many, many players, many coaches, many people.Greene recorded at least 10 sacks in 10 of his 15 seasons, including at least 14 sacks five times. He was named to the Pro Bowl five times -- twice each with?Pittsburgh and Carolina and once with the Rams.Harrison spent his entire 13-year career with the Indianapolis Colts, with whom he compiled 1,102 receptions, 14,580 yards and 128 touchdowns. Harrisons single-season receptions record of 143, set in 2002, still stands today.Harrison spoke of his gratitude to those who supported him throughout his career.The fans is what makes this game possible, Harrison said. I say this from the bottom of my heart. No offense, Green Bay, I had the best fans in the game.Im from Philadelphia, the home of the Eagles, he added. If you get the coin toss wrong in Philadelphia, they want to trade you the first thing Monday morning. So I wasnt used to that in Indianapolis. So we had the best fans.Hes equally grateful for the Hall of Fame executive who led the Colts throughout Harrisons career.Bill Polian, 15, 16, 17 years ago, we crossed paths in the locker room, and Bill Polian said, Whats up, Hall of Famer? and Im like, What is this guy talking about? Harrison said. Im in my sixth, seventh year and hes talking about Hall of Fame. That just goes to show you why hes up here today [as a Hall of Famer] as part of this elite group. He can pick out talent a mile away.In terms of talent, Harrison spent much of his career paired with future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning.Peyton, I want to say that you came intoo the league in your first year and I was happy to be a part of that, Harrison said.dddddddddddd And I saw the work ethic that you had, and we carried that on for quite a few more years. So I want to thank you, too, Peyton.?Like Harrison, Pace played 13 years in the NFL, 12 with the Rams and one with the Chicago Bears. The Rams had seven 1,000-yard rushing seasons with Pace, who was selected to the Pro Bowl for seven straight seasons from 2000 to 2006. Pace and the Rams won Super Bowl XXXVI.My dream started when I was 7 years old in Sandusky [Ohio]. With my size and athletic ability, maybe God had destined me for something great, Pace said. The dream always begins as a dream. It takes hard work to make it a reality.Stanfel was a four-time Pro Bowler while playing with the Detroit Lions and the Washington Redskins during a career that spanned 1952-58. He was the offensive line coach for the Bears when they won Super Bowl XX.Dungy coached the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Colts. Dungy led the Colts and Buccaneers to the playoffs in 11 of his 13 seasons coaching those teams.The Colts won at least 10 games in all seven seasons under Dungy. They won five division titles during that span, and Dungy became the first African-American head coach to win a Super Bowl.It was a bittersweet night for Dungy, who was given one of his biggest breaks in the profession by the late Dennis Green, ?who hired him as defensive coordinator of the?Minnesota Vikings?in 1992 and got him on path to be an NFL head coach.Denny went out of his way to teach me the responsibilities of being a head coach, taught me about things on and off the field, Dungy said. He did it because he wanted to see me become a head coach, and he wanted me to be prepared and be ready when that opportunity came, and I love him for that.Dungy also asked all of his former players in attendance to stand up during the ceremony: Theres no doubt in my mind that Im up here because of you, he said.?Stabler quarterbacked the Oakland Raiders to the AFC title game each season from 1973 to 1977. His 59.85 completion percentage was second all time at the time of his retirement in 1984. Stabler was 12-of-19 for 180 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions in the Raiders 32-14 victory over the?Vikings in Super Bowl XI. Stabler and Young were the only left-handed quarterbacks to start and win a Super Bowl.Favre, who spoke last, was an 11-time Pro Bowler during his 16-year career. Favre led the Green Bay Packers to two Super Bowls. They beat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXI. Favre, who never thought he couldnt complete a pass, held the NFL career record in passing yards (71,838), completions (6,300), most 3,000-yard passing seasons (18) and touchdown passes (508) when he retired following the 2010 season after spending his career with the Atlanta Falcons, Packers, Vikings and New York Jets.
