Politics in sports just ruin all the pro and college games for me. I am not spending money on any merchandise and tickets anymore. I am protesting against these players also by not wasting my time watching them play. I just don't care about the games anymore, because now these athletes are making the games to be about politics. I am done with them forever.

This virtuous signalling white guilt pandering and placating orgy is getting tiresome. Don’t need to be lectured and preached too on how to conduct my life and treat people by millionaires who play a game for a living. Apparently the world was fine before George Floyd for Pro Sports. Integrity is a matter of convenience and not principle in Woke America.

Commentating the new NBA-- Social justice dribbles at the top of the key, he goes left, crosses over right, penetrates the defense, kicks the ball out to Antifa who uses his quick first step to drive to the hole, he double clutches and dumps it off to BLM, who goes up for the DUNK-- wait out know where, WHITE CONSERVATIVE BLOCKS THE DUNK BY BLM, NO FOUL NO FOUL CALLED BY A WHITE REFEREE!! BLM IS LIVID, AND IS CALLED FOR A TECHNICAL FOUL. After the game BLM protests, the NBA commissioner XI Jinping, I mean Adam silver hands down a ruling-- the white referee is fired, the player white conservative is suspended for the season and the player BLM is given reperations!! NBA, you just got BANNED!!

screw the NBA this chit is ridiculous and is nothing but marxist propaganda. All because orange man bad. The people pushing this chit are scumbags.
Why so do many people have a problem with “black lives matter” if all lives matter as you say? People always hate when something isn’t made yo benefit them huh🤣🤣
YxngJay i don’t give a fuck about the movement leaders plans. Me screaming black lives matter and actually meaning black lives matter shouldn’t be a worry for you.If i paint a street saying “black lives matter” why are you so concerned about a fucking street? And whats wrong with democratic party influences? All you trump supporters always say “It gOeS To tHe dEmOcRaTiC PaRtY” ok why should i care? My concern is on black lives mattering so all lives can.

Freedom of speach is a good thing that should be honored, but that does not mean that we have to try to be disrespective to other people when expressing our thoughts with freedom. It is a freedom of content, that should be done in respectful forms

This is nonsense. These guys got famous playing basketball, not because of their activism or their take on politics. If it were only about their politics or activism we wouldn’t know who any of these guys are and wouldn’t value their opinions one bit.

These people need to shut up and play basketball. Right, there’s systemic racism when all these black folks get paid millions of dollars and we have famous black actors. When Morgan Freeman was asked how we need to combat racism, he replied, “Stop talking about it.” All of this is creating a victim mentality in the black community and is going to create actual racism. And if you don’t like it here, go to the Middle East where slavery is actually practiced.

honestly, I don't really like this idea. Isn't it supposed to be a professional league? I don't care about what social justice impacts on the nba court. We hear about it in the news, on every social media platform. Jersey Sponsorship was already bad enough, now they want to give players the choice to be controversial just because they should be able to "express their opinion". They've been doing it for years on social media. Its never been a problem, therefore, that's where the controversial shit can stay.
Dennis Esguerra
Dennis Esguerra 6 months ago
It’s a classless move and a slap in face to the fans. Everyone should boycott watching nba games when they restart the season.
iluvdissheet 6 months ago
@Adam The Turtle ok, my bad for being unclear: 1) when I said facemasks, I meant because of COVID, not bball injuries 2) I get your point but I'm still unclear about what disaster could come. You know the teams and the league are not going to allow offensive speech, or controversy on the jersey. It's only the name plate, not much room there. Of course anyone can be offended by anything but within reason, whats the worse that could happen? Also NBA players already have the opportunity to make deals/endorsements with companies that have nothing to do with basketball. Curry puts bible verses on his sneakers. But I highly doubt players are going to destroy their brand for a fast buck. That is the easiest way to get cut from the league entirely. It's not a requirement and I imagine not all players will change their name. Are you concerned about the fans? Or are you really concerned the players put Black Lives Matter or actual names like: George Floyd, Rashad Brooks, Ahmaud Arbery, Philando Castile, Tamir Rice, Botham Jean, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Eric Garner and many others or I cant BREATHE on the jersey? If you dont understand why players would do this, it's the exact reason they would. If you dont agree, that's fine too. You dont have to watch. Let's be honest, the NBA is only doing this for the TV contracts, IMO. Given the current state of Florida with rising cases of COVID, it's more likely there won't be a restart than a controversy. Just my $0.02
Adam The Turtle

iluvdissheet but anything you stated there is irrelevant. Facemasks protects the players facial injuries to a high degree that allows them to play where they otherwise wouldn’t. This benefits in and outside of the NBA. Restarting the NBA is very much the same thing, whatever happens, there are good benefits either way (also risks but that isn’t the topic here). What benefit is there to change your jersey name on the back to something that is otherwise irrelevant to do with the NBA but everything to do with something that is highly opinionated, and/or can be brought to a player to buy their support? Its just like advertising. “Please, support this and we will give you a small piece of the pie”. And if it ain’t money, there are a hundred different things you can use to get a supporter from one of the top basketball players in the world. Its a disaster waiting to happen. You can sit there and say whatever you want about “they won’t ever do that” except some players don’t actually get paid 10/15million a year. Thats all the reason they need to earn a little side cash. It happens in the real world believe it or not, and allowing players to support something opens up a LOT of opportunity to buy someones support. Doesn’t mean it will happen, but its not like it hasn’t ever been done before.
iluvdissheet 6 months ago
I guess I missed that part that freedom of speech was granted to all citizens except athletes. I understand "you dont care about what social justice impacts on the nba court" and you're tired of hearing the conversation. You have the choice to not watch and voice your opinion, agree to disagree. I disagree with the NBA restarting the season. I'm not going to say they dont have the right to restart. I disagree with people refusing to wear face masks. But they have the right to be (as you put it) "controversial just because they should be able to express their opinion".

Just because you don't see good cops not stopping the bad cops does not mean they aren't good. Good cops have lost their careers and retirement pensions for doing the right thing. It's a brotherhood mentality in the cop world.
