If this is how u wanna let these guys off the hook than next time lebron asks for unity on the black lives movement, I guess anyone who isn’t black should just turn the other way and not say anything right? Doesn’t affect them so why speak on it? Pop asking for unity for the lgbt community? Anyone who’s not a member or doesn’t have a family member in it shouldn’t say anything right? See how childish/cowardly this mentality is? And to those who are gonna say well maybe they are just not educated on the situation going on between HK and China, well that’s incredibly naive to believe and a slimy take to have. Do we all have access to the internet? Yep then there’s really no excuse. And maybe they didn’t know before morey’s tweet but the fact is now that the topic was brought up, you would not need much time to look into the situation.
The NBA is willing to move their all star game over who can go into a particular bathroom but when people are beaten and killed by repressive regime, nothing but crickets. Itâ€™s said that the NBA has 4 billion dollars at stake in China, so at least we kn
Popovich did respond: >"I guess I can go at it this way. Adam is a very progressive leader. We all remember how he handled the situation with the former owner of the Clippers. It made everybody proud because it was the right thing to do. A couple of y
So now they have to speak on it. Just because they speak on US politics they now have to speak on geo political things as well, us politics directly affect them and their families and maybe they follow along with that... chinese politics dont affect them
With this attitude white people would still be lynching black people every day in the middle of streets. Jewish people would still be getting mass murdered in Germany.
Theyre not being asked to speak about all the bad things China has done or is doing. Theyre just being asked about the Morey situation. In case you didnt know, China has blacklisted and wont run any more Rockets games until Morey is fired. Silver is in Ch
Yes and no, the morey situation is about that because that what its all about. Morey said he stood with HK, so there being asked what do they think about morey, youre really being asked if you also stand with HK, if you support him you risk losing chinese
Nice false equivalency. If you wanna feel justified in being racist go right ahead. But dont equate black men seeking equality in the US to this stuff with Morey and China.
Iâ€™m not sure if this is where youâ€™re going, but stuff in the states like Transgender bathrooms is incredibly trivial when compared to China (you know, those forced concentration camps with organ harvesting and all). The former is easy to score PR po
I dont give a fuck about transgender bathrooms. Lebron james isnt a politician. When he talks about Black Lives Matter. Can you guess why? One chance..... Cause hes fucking Black. Why should he jeopardize billions of dollars in the black community to
Itâ€™s the truth you just donâ€™t wanna hear it. How is it any different? If the attitude is why should I care unless it directly affects me or my family, please tell me how my post is wrong? Why do people who donâ€™t have a voice in Hong Kong, not deserv
> Why do people who donâ€™t have a voice in Hong Kong, not deserve to have someone speak for them and stand up for them? They do. But it certainly doesnt have to be Lebron James.
Thereâ€™s a difference between shouldnâ€™t and donâ€™t need to imo. I would have loved it if they had, but I also donâ€™t fault them for not doing so. They arenâ€™t required to go down fighting every injustice just because theyâ€™ve fought against other i
I gave 5 bucks to a homeless guy on the street. Oh wait, now I have to give 5 bucks to every homeless guy I pass or else Im a hypocrite? Might as well make me donate my bank account to cancer research, since if I had the boldness to use my money against h
Your metaphor is dumb as hell. Iâ€™m saying this cause guys like lebron and Kerr are in positions to say something cause they are privileged. They are so rich it would not matter if they took a hit in their bank account from speaking out.
Exactly but not only in the US but also in china
LeBron wants to be more than an athlete? Time to step up, you wanna be Ali then get on his level and make a statement.
we all know whats going on. they purposely arent speaking on it because they know it wont go over well with the nba its not that hard to figure that one out. people defending them are beyond naive
Itâ€™s easy to sound tough on the internet Maybe they just donâ€™t feel comfortable making a statement?
lol i knew its probably all warriors flairs defending kerr too. bias always comes out on top
