James was speaking with reporters at Cavs Media Day in Independence, OH when he explained his position. 

"Me, standing for the national anthem is something I will do," James said ... "That's who I am. That's what I believe in."

"But that doesn't mean I don't respect and don't agree with what Colin Kaepernick is doing."
