Julius Erving — Proud of Mayweather's 6-Year-Old Protesters … 'It's Healthy' (VIDEO)

NBA legend Julius Erving says he’s PROUD of Floyd Mayweather‘s youth football team — comprised of 6 year olds — for protesting the National Anthem … saying it’s healthy for kids to “speak their minds.”

As we previously reported, the Las Vegas Red Lions — sponsored by Mayweather’s TMT brand — followed Colin Kaepernick‘s lead this weekend and took a knee during the “Star-Spangled Banner.”

Dr. J says he loved seeing the protest — because it shows that even 6 year olds can “bring attention to the issues.”

He also gives props to adult team leaders — explaining why encouraging young people to stand up for what they believe in at a young age is so important.
