“We went through a long stretch there where [with] well-paid athletes the notion was: just be quiet and get your endorsements and don’t make waves,” said president Barack Obama in 2014, while commending NBA superstar LeBron James for wearing an “I Can’t Breathe” t-shirt. “LeBron is an example of a young man who has, in his own way and in a respectful way, tried to say, ‘I’m part of this society, too’ and focus attention.” “Look at him, he’s shy,” said president Trump when visited last month by Crosby and his teammates. “Do you know how to win, or what? Great, great job. What a job you’ve done.”
