LeBron James and other NBA stars slammed Wednesday's announcement that no charges would be filed against two officers who shot and killed
Breonna Taylor on March 13. 

"I’ve been lost for words today! I’m devastated, hurt, sad, mad! We want Justice for Breonna yet justice was met for her neighbors apartment walls and not her beautiful life. Was I surprised at the verdict. Absolutely not but damnit I was & still am hurt and heavy hearted! I send my love to Breonna mother, family and friends! I’m sorry! I’m sorry! I’m sorry!!" he wrote on Wednesday night. 

As Blavity previously reported, James has spoken out about Taylor's case dozens of times since the NBA returned to play in the Disney World bubble in Orlando after the season was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

During pre and post game interviews, he has spoken passionately about the need for justice in her case and joined other NBA players last night in tweeting out their despair about the resolution.

"The most DISRESPECTED person on earth is THE BLACK WOMAN! I promise you I’ll do my best to change this as much as I can and even more!! LOVE to you QUEENS all over this country and beyond!" he said in another tweeting, referencing the famous line from Malcolm X. 

He went on to tweet about the Black women in his life.

James was far from the only NBA player to discuss what happened with Taylor's case.

Even NBA coaches spoke about her story in interviews with the the press. 

Denver Nuggets coach Mike Malone spoke about the confusion of the ruling and how it made little sense.

“I just put myself in Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend’s shoes. If I’m in my house, I’m in my apartment or whatever I’m living in and someone breaks into my house at two, three o’clock in the morning, I’m going to feel like [that] somebody should not be there," Malone said per Yahoo. 

"It’s tragic … We have not gotten that justice, and that’s a shame. Hopefully that will change at some point,” he added.

Magic Johnson also tweeted out about the ruling.

"Another innocent black life gone with no consequences!! Breonna Taylor was 26, a daughter, a cousin, a friend, a girlfriend, an ER technician, an AMERICAN," he wrote. 

Many WNBA players, who have been extremely vocal about the case, even paying tribute to the late 26-year-old during games, also spoke out about the decision. 

Before and after last night's NBA playoff game, players from both teams were asked about the case and spoke candidly about how it made them feel. 

"I just tried to channel my anger toward the game. It’s crazy that somebody killed somebody and we get to the same charge as somebody that uses an unauthorized credit card,” Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo said.

“I don’t think people rally understand like, she’s dead. Somebody killed her. At the end of the day, you need justice for that. All the other stuff, you need justice for her,” he added.

Fellow Heat star Jimmy Butler spoke about the case but also referenced the endless comments from fans criticizing players for talking about social justice issues. Under almost all of the tweets from players are hundreds of comments from people telling them to stick to sports. 

“It’s always much bigger than basketball, because that can be anybody. That can be me, that can be any African-American. When you look at it like that, for me, it’s always on my heart because I just think it’s some bullcrap. Going into the game, you have to compete, but at the end of the day we’re people first, not just athletes," Butler said.

"I’m no different than anybody else, man. If you didn’t know my name, that could be me. It still could be me, even when people do know my name. That’s what it’s all about, is the fact that we’re all equal. No matter what. No matter the color of our skin. At the end of the day, we’re all equal, and we just need everybody to see it that way,” he added.
