Cleveland Cavaliers players LeBron James and J.R. Smith endorsed Hillary Clinton for president at a rally Sunday in Cleveland.

James, a four-time NBA MVP, introduced the Democratic candidate.

“The number one reason I'm here is for Hillary and what she believes in,” James told the crowd.

James endorsed Clinton in a Business Insider op-ed published last month.

“Only one person running truly understands the struggles of an Akron child born into poverty,” James wrote. “That candidate is Hillary Clinton.”
“I support Hillary because she will build on the legacy of my good friend, President Barack Obama,” he added.

Clinton received a string of celebrity endorsements over the weekend, including from megastar music couple Beyonce and Jay Z and Katy Perry. Other stars who have endorsed her include Cher, Madonna and comic Louis C.K.
