Skip to comments.Players, coaches kneel before NBA's re-opening night

Black players were next to white players. Coaches from one team were next to their compatriots from the opposing side. Many locked arms with the man next to them, some shut their eyes tightly, a few including LeBron James briefly raising a fist into the air or pointing skyward.
The NBA had a strong, powerful re-opening night message.
When it comes to demanding change, the league stands united and Thursday, the four teams that played on the first night of the league's restart showed that by not standing.

Taking a knee for socialism. Yay team!
I honestly believe the NBA should do the right thing and cancel the season. For our health. For the children.
As a side benefit, it would give the players a chance to return to their neighborhoods, nor the ones they live in now, but the ones many hail from. It would give them a chance to return and fight for the social justice they care about sooo much.
The blacks are going to have all the change they ever wanted when 20 million latinos are handed citizenship....and they don’t abort babies like blacks do and they damn sure don’t buy NBA season tickets. They will wake up one day without a country.
A blind man can see this coming.
And just what exactly is LeBron James protesting? The country that made him possible to be a millionaire? A pampered rich boy?
I wonder what Michael Jordan thinks of this. He was never political. Once was asked about his political views and he said, “Both Republicans and Democrats buy shoes.”
Smart man. He never, as the current bunch of NBA players are doing, alienated half of his fan/customer base.
I actually think that is driving much of this; they KNOW it has happened already. In the 2000 election (yes, 20 years ago) the media pointed out W’s ability to speak some Spanish as a gamechanger (and in an election that close, they were probably right - he did well with Hispanics).
For the past 20 years Hispanics have displaced blacks in just about every facet of daily life - in neighborhoods, the workforce...
They were projected to pass blacks in numbers by 2010, and after the 2000 census the government admitted it had already occurred. I believe that is why they are trying to make a deal along the lines of the American Indians; they don’t feel they can compete, and want lives of leisure funded by taxpayers while they watch the world go by.
Is there a handbook for this new religion?
Professional sports are so “pre-COVID”; if every stadium was opened tomorrow, they’d find a lot of people can’t even afford to attend or buy their merchandise. A lot of people lost their income, and they don’t have the luxury of the “bread-and-circuses” anymore.
“Rules for Radicals.”
Can I have some of that oppression?
The NBA, with their Commie China backers, deserve a boycott from American citizens.
The big question is when the now unavoidable crash comes, will the leagues and team owners finally wake up? Probably not; like Hollywood studios that just keep pumping out one leftist propaganda-filled bomb after another, I think sports owners and execs have become so infected with the PC virus that they may actually burn their own fortunes just to show how woke they are. Its a deep sickness.
Playing on their knees might make the game worth watching
Next, they should have simulated gay sex in solidarity with the LGBetc community.
Shucks, I missed it.
My life will go on
Demanding change...How about stop killing each other first. The demands should be on yourselves.
