so WHO is taking away WHOSE freedom of speech? spoiler alert… no one… no one in the NBA at least. But glad you are so for free speech… hope you were front and center supporting freedom of speech when the NFL was actually taking it away.
…oooookay … good talk.
maybe they will bounce a ball. … look I agree teachers deserve to be paid much more than they are. But that is an issue to take up with the government. Thats who pays them… NBA Players get paid a portion of the revenue they generate with their skills they’ve developed over years … Blaming NBA players for low teacher salaries or even comparing the 2 is a tired and ignorant take on the issue… all it does is deflect from where the injustice really lies… an injustice that we can actually do something about as well.
Actually people should get it from the horse’s mouth instead of listening to what these conservatives – who hate the NBA anyway – are saying he meant. I concede that his statement was confusing but he has since explained it. Keep in mind… he was asked about Morrey’s tweet. He said it was uneducated because Morrey was not informed about the effect it would have on the NBA / China relationship. He also said that he was not commenting on the subject or the protests as he does not know enough about them to speak on them. … but yeah please keep on talking about this non issue while the whole planet is berzerk right now.
Yes sports require highly developed physical skills… but if you are going to be a professional it also takes intellectual skill. And the only ones who have “problems” with them voicing their opinions are either jealous, scared, or on the other side of their opinions.
sleazeball? your hate is showing.
Sure they should… if they are one of the best in the world… and people are willing to pay hundreds of dollars to see them bounce the ball then they absolutely should. They deserve every cent and more.
Of all the political news worthy occurrences going on right now… the majority of right wing cartoonist decide to focus on a basketball player’s comment about a team owner’s tweet. sad times.
Glad Mike is making sure our elected officials are on the straight and narrow! … oh wait… oh wait.
sooooo… playing along with your delusions … what should be done with liars? You know besides electing them president?
