LeBron James' marriage of being a superstar athlete, who is also a passionate activist, puts him in a small elite class of superstar activist athletes along with Bill Russell, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Muhammad Ali and Jim Brown.

James' latest triumph is a victory not only for athletes but also for freedom-loving people everywhere.

Sunday night, the Los Angeles Lakers won their 17th NBA championship, led by the virtuoso James, who was named the series MVP for the fourth time.

For those counting, this represents James' fourth ring, with three different teams -- a first in NBA history.

James' fourth championship now places him in the pantheon of the sport alongside the likes of Michael Jordan, considered by many to be the greatest basketball player of all time.

While Jordan, during his own playing heyday, famously eschewed getting political, James has confidently taken up the struggle for Black dignity and citizenship, emerging as the athletic superstar that America might not deserve but so desperately needs.
