LeBron Says Orlando Shooting Puts Things ‘in Perspective’


The deadly nightclub rampage in Florida that killed at least 50 people sent shock waves around the world Sunday, with many prominent athletes among those taking to Twitter and elsewhere to share their feelings about the massacre. “It’s another hit for us as Americans and what we have to deal with in our world today,” Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James said Sunday in offering condolences to the families who lost loved ones in the shooting.

“It definitely puts things in perspective on basketball for myself; it’s just a small matter of what reality really is,” James said. “My prayers to all the lost ones and all the ones that are recovering from this morning’s tragedy in Orlando.”
