Cleveland Cavaliers franchise player and three-time NBA Champion LeBron James has officially endorsed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to be the next president of the United States.

On Sunday, in a published op-ed he wrote for the Akron Business Journal, which he also sent to Business Insider, James explained why he was backing Clinton.

He wrote the following:

“I support Hillary because she will build on the legacy of my good friend, President Barack Obama. I believe in what President Obama has done for our country and support her commitment to continuing that legacy.

Like my foundation, Hillary has always been a champion for children and their futures. For over 40 years, she’s been working to improve public schools, expand access to health care, support children’s hospitals, and so much more. …

Policies and ideas that divide us more are not the solution. We must all stand together – no matter where we are from or the color of our skin. And Hillary is running on the message of hope and unity that we need.”
