Everyone should stop hating on Kyrie. All of you just want some basketball to watch. All of you just wants to watch people play basketball like they are your puppets for your entertainment, well not really though but you get my point. Stop being selfish, Kyrie is just doing the right thing, he is just concerned for the racism and that stuff. Like seriously, imagine what if your favorite team's star doesn't want to play and that team had the chance to be champions with that star but since he didn't play. Its all gone

Think kyrie and some people forget sports is what gives you your platform to speak. If you dont have your platform, you're just like everyone else. Maybe try using it effectively, if you have it.

During a pandemic and a stand against racial oppression Kyrie is using his platform to not allow the media to use their image in a way to distract us from a reality that is very important right now. Lebron James has played in this league for 17 years , gone to the finals 9 times and won 3 championships. You mean to tell me during that this time of crisis in our country your already great career as a basketball player is that important? Kyrie is being made out to be the villain. At the end of the day Lebron might donate a lot of money and build schools and all of that but he puts his greed over all of us and it shows. If it came down to fighting for social justice or chasing another pointless title he’s picking the latter every time. LEBRON JAMES WOULD RATHER WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP AND MAKE THE WHITE MAN BILLIONS THAN SACRIFICE HIS LEGACY FOR THE BETTER OF THE PEOPLE!

I'm with lebron and kyrie need to sit his whining self down u dont wanna play then quit like u always do BLM is a joke and nothing going to change because at the end of the day we have to change are minds and the way we treat each other period. This country is not going to change because we protest and slow up everybody money that's stupid

I think NBA players should boycott because the like is not a black owned league, if black lives matter, then we should own America because the copper color race dominates the world as far as population. Boycott is necessary!!!!

Right now its not about if whether or not Lebron can inspire social change its about keeping the conversation about BLM and police brutality. Lebron can make a difference and he's doing but right now its not the time. As soon NBA resumes the people will start getting distracted and the protests will lose momentum. They should hold out until solid police reforms are introduced. Its more about Lebron and his ability to give back. He can open 10 schools it still wouldn't matter if black people are continued being killed in police encounters. Lebron just wants to get the ring. I love Lebron but he needs to stand for his people.

I will also say this, and think on this. The NBA has invested tens of billions of dollars into the NBA. They will begin to hire whites and other races because they cannot afford to take the chance of hiring black men who are going to strike every time a black man is killed in America.

If we took all black people from all sports and started our own leagues, that only we could watch, think about how exciting the NBA and NFL would be then. We are the flavor!! Cancel all that, we don't need distractions, we need to be in this space. Distractions got us here!

Unpopular Popular Opinion
I really wanted to see the NBA finish out, but Kyrie made a good point. I think they should sit this one out. We are too easily distracted. People will want to go home to watch the game, rather than march and protest. Rest up, take part in social justice, and get ready for next season.

austin rivers tripping. nba superstars been gettin paid millions for a few decades already, so how much systemic injustices did they resolve with all that money so far? i'm not talking about charities, foundations, and donations. i'm talking about an effort to make actual systemic change. kyrie proposed the idea of a players owned league.. that might sound bad in the short term.. but imagine it in the long term. players would have autonomy over their careers and the would be "player owned league". players wouldn't have to worry about shady ass trades and contract negotiations and what not. it won't be perfect ofc, but there is power within that idea of deviating from a white owned league and creating their own. and plus, if the nba resumes it wouldn't be just a distraction it would be a HUGE distraction to the movement of the protests! it could definitely lose momentum austin rivers... think about it, for the first time in history, all 50 states protested within a same day... that speaks volumes for the urgency of the people.

Noam Chomsky talks about how sport is used to distract people, time, money and energy away from real issues. I love basketball, but he's right. They have to cancel the season. The NBA and franchises can afford to give out pay checks either way this year.

No matter what you do racism will never end. That’s a sad reality but some people were raised like this. The NBA served as a distraction from everything and that’s what makes it so good. The rioters and looters are making the protestors look wrong, which is the same for cops, some cops are bad but that shouldn’t affect the way others see cops as a whole. At this point are they fighting to end racism or bring up black people? There is a difference. It’s either all lives matter or black lives matter. And also what is this ‘equality’ colored people are fighting for? How does one treat someone as an equal? How are they inferior? Or what makes them feel inferior?

Kyrie is injured and generally they should punish players and cut their salaries completely if they don't show up to work which is basketball. This way everyone will be in Orlando.

Why don’t Lebron and Stephen Jackson talk about it together. Especially since Lebron feels that other athletes don’t get what kap was kneeling for. We don’t need a distraction in a critical time that will become part of our history.

I'm just stating facts, speaking out against racism is great and we should, oppression though? People of color haven't been oppressed for quite some time, the elite billionaires and government oppress us all regardless of skin color.

Its so funny how everyone in the comments is tagging Kyrie with the "Flat-Earth guy" and "injured guy" tags. Like its all over the comments section but why would you not hesitately decide that the season should continue. I mean, there is chaos everywhere, think about the risks. Ya, maybe they cleaned the place up where they are going to stay and play but how about the way there? Their transportation all the way to Orlando? I don't want to risk anything for something that we all want because if we risk it then worse things might happen and the cases on NBA players would go back. This is just my opinion so don't go saying "You take the Flat-Earther's side?" Or something like that

If nba players feel that they should be out there protesting and joining rallys, then they should be an activist, they choose the wrong profession, they should waive their contract and start creating a anti racist party.

We all know lebron only cares and thinking about getting that ring and scared that AD is leaving the lakers that’s why he so insist the nba returns he doesn’t care about anyone else it’s not like I’m on kyrie side but base on the current situation the world is at now you really think resuming the nba a good idea what happen if an nba player get sick and infected the moment they resume it can affect other nba players
