NBA is officially the NO Basketball Anymore league. Wonder how long they can go if they become the No Fan League? When I saw the BLM plastered all over courts, coaches shirts and various names on the back of jerseys, I could see the writing on the wall.
Here are a few questions that come to mind:
Why was Jacob Blake walking away from police after he has been commanded to stay put?
This video is extremely hard to watch…I mean, shoot a man in the back and with his kids in the car as I understand it. Don’t these police understand that the nation is watching on social media at all times? This is just a powder keg for unrest and rioters.
So back to the NBA. It is a league full of Black players, as is the NFL. So is the future going to be full of protests if a black man is shot because I guarantee that happens daily.
Would the NBA stop play if a white man were getting shot in the back in this video? Would a white man actually do this sort of thing in front of his kids?
It appears that both Jacob Blake and George Floyd were Lifetime Criminals. Which puts police in a pickle. Do they enforce the law, do they just have to be smarter, better trained?
Has Donovan Mitchell experienced racism here in Utah? He is beloved here in Utah, will his comments about Blake erode that love here in Utah? Is there Racism here in Utah?
Finally, here is a priceless piece on what happens when you have lawlessness and you replace it with vigilantism.
