July 11, 2014: Although Palestine is being bombed by Israel, this news is overshadowed by Lebron James’ decision to go back to Cleveland.

i may dislike this team, but i’m impressed with this statement



It’s no secret that I’m a Lebron-hater and that I adamantly cheer against the Miami Heat, but mad props to them for doing this and hopefully raising more awareness about Trayvon Martin.
