Speaking at a press conference ahead of his team’s In-Season Tournament semifinals game against the New Orleans Pelicans in Las Vegas, James was asked about the shooting at UNLV, which left three people dead and another wounded. “We’re the only ones who keep dealing with this same story, the same conversation every single time it happens, and it just continues to happen,” James said. “The ability to get a gun, the ability to does these things over and over and over, and there’s been no change, is literally ridiculous. It makes no sense we continue to lose innocent lives on campuses, on schools, at shopping markets, movie theaters and all type of stuff. It’s ridiculous.”
