NBA season to open without me caring what they do.

Won't be watching them either.

Do I think black lives matter? Of course I do.
Do I support the Black Lives Matter organization? I don't support Marxists and Commies, nope.

:iagree:

Besides the NBA is racist because the teams do not have equal numbers of races on the team. Call me when that happens....

Never been a fan of any of the ball sports, if it doesn't fire a projectile i'm not interested, I am curious how much of their fan base they'll lose over this?

This week Senator Ted Cruz got into a Twitter feud with Mark Cuban regarding the flag and China and the NBA. Cruz destroyed him and then yesterday someone tweeted this and Cruz retweeted it. This is regarding the Chinese Consulate in Houston being ordered shutdown and staff burning documents:

Yeah, not sure you can socially “justicize” (yep i made that up) enough to make more billionaires so they can buy sports franchises. :headscratch

NBA and BLM deserve each other. I'm sick of their systemic racism aimed at us privileged, but short white folk!

1st NBA player not to kneel. “Can we get past skin color”

Amen to that!

I won't be watching and pro or college sports if even one of the players (or managers or owners) kneels or otherwise shows disrespect for our country, our flag, or our national anthem. And, I agree with Grayling813: when there are an equal number of players of all races, creeds, colors, and natural origins on each team, then we will have equality. Another thing: being one of those who is "vertically challenged" (5'6"), I demand that we have an equal number of people my height and shorter on NBA teams as they have people who are taller than that (LOL).......
