Social media strike or not, LeBron James is as socially aware as any athlete in the world. Because of his following and his impact not only in the NBA community but across the world, his opinion on world topics is taken seriously. When he talks, people tend to listen.

Following the Cavaliers' win on Wednesday night in Cleveland, James was asked about the happenings on Monday at Fenway Park in which racial slurs were allegedly directed at Orioles player Adam Jones. Although he wasn't totally abreast with the situation, he caught up with it while watching a baseball game this week. And he called the situation "delicate."

Here were his comments from Wednesday night.

"Racism, we know, exists," James said. "You try not to put yourself in a position, for me as a father I try to give my kids the blueprint on how life is going to be, but at the end of the day I can only tell them so much and then they have to go out and live it themselves.

"For me, I just try to be respectful for one, be respectful to others, and I feel that if you do that consistently I believe the karma will come back to you."

James admits that he himself hasn't had to deal with racism or racial slurs in Boston during his trips to the TD Garden, however he applauded fellow players and those that stood by Jones' side this week.

"I don't know who said it or what happened or the whole community in Boston or whatever the case may be, I've heard a couple of athletes say that you expect that when you go to Boston. For me, I've been to Boston, I've played in Boston a lot. I just try to have tunnel vision when I play. I can't recall ever hearing something that was racism towards me, but I think it was great that other guys spoke up for him, not even on his own team. I think the guys from the Red Sox spoke up for Adam Jones saying, 'Hey fans we need you guys, this is a situation where we need you guys to have a standing ovation and please do that' because, it's not great for sports. It's not great for society.

"You got guys like Martin Luther King, who all he talked about was trying to unite all of us, no matter the color, no matter the race, no matter the shape or size. Racism is going to be a part of [life] forever, I believe, but for us, the people that have opportunities to have a voice and people that have an opportunity to have some play on the youth that's coming up, we have to lead them the best way we can."
