LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers v Golden State Warriors NBA 06092017

The tragic events in Charlottesville, Virginia that saw racist protesters injure and, in one case, kill innocent bystanders is certainly giving this cap choice an added bit of social justice fuel.

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar took to Twitter and called out the President for not making America Great Again.

"It's sad what's going on in Charlottesville".

One 32-year-old woman died and at least 19 more were injured after a auto targeted and barreled into a crowd of protesters opposing a racist rally led by white supremacists in Charlottesville on Saturday.

As white nationalists, neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klansmen clashed with counter-protesters, a vehicle drove into a crowd of people, killing one and injuring 19 others. A group of counterprotesters soon demonstrated nearby, leading to a violent clash between the two groups that ultimately ended with a silver Dodge Challenger plowing through several hundred counterprotesters and a state of emergency being declared by the governor. "Flat out", LeBron tweeted.

LeBron James is known around the world as arguably the greatest basketball player of his generation, if not of all time.
