Hello everyone and welcome to today's 'Fear the Newsletter', where LeBron James speaks out.

If you have questions, concerns or complaints, drop me an e-mail at We hope you enjoy. And a special thanks to Carter Rodriguez for filling in for me over the last few days.

Last night at the ESPYs, LeBron James spoke out and called for change alongside Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony. It was a powerful moment by four athletes speaking out and calling for change at a time where violence has become incredibly and unfortunately common. Bravo to LeBron and the rest for speaking out and using their platform to call for change.

Also at the ESPYs, the Cavs won a lot of awards and LeBron himself picked up a few solo awards.

In summer league action, the Cavs beat the Celtics last night in tournament play with Jordan McRae leading the way. The Cavs next play the Lakers tonight at 10:30 p.m. EST.

As a reminder, chat about free agency here and track all Cavs rumors here.

If you need a sick Cavs or NBA t-shirt, go support FtS' Daniel Rowell over on TeePublic. You may or may not see the header of this newsletter on a t-shirt in his store.
