Silver wonít do shit if they protest. Heís only saying this because itís an official NBA rule. Ironically, the rule was created to avoid negative reaction to a predominately black league, by a predominantly white fan base.

+1.... If they protest I think it will do more harm than good. If someone could persuade me that an anthem kneel protest would actually have a constructive effect on the situation I would be in favor of it but I think it will lead to more hurt feelings, division and animosity.

I think an arm link type of stance would be a more powerful message of unity and solidarity which is what we should aim for imo.

this is the only decent answer in this thread.


lol @ "keep politics out of sports".

as long as long as national symbology is in sports, players have a right to speak on it or act on it.

don't want them to protest during the anthem? lobby for the NBA to get rid of it. don't get mad at the players.

Trump supporters get their jimmies ruffled, then go on Facebook, Twitter & Reddit complaining about how the black man is disrespecting the troops.

ahhh...yes. I get it.

So you mean to tell me the fat asses that wear hunting jackets and choke on beers during the anthem have an issue with brown/black people kneeling during the anthem.

Been to a helluva lot of Braves games and Falcons games and I thought the anthem was a time when most American loving white people stand in line to buy beer or shit out their pregame nachos.

Don't want those folks mad at you

Lebaldo better comply. Never bite the hand that gave you a ring.
