Sports is often a used as a tool to escape reality, but, there are some things that can not be ignored and permeates many lives.
I am not a fan of the Miami Heat, but major props to them for this powerful image in response to the sad and maddening Trayvon Martin incident in central Florida. This photo was Tweeted by LeBron James.
Sometimes athletes can be blowhards and just talk to talk to self-promote; however, in this case, the Heat roster used their influence to take a very meaningful stand.
Special thanks to the Miami Herald...
