I watched a few minutes of the NBA game while flipping channels. In the 4th quarter, one of the announcers said the players are sacrificing being there to play a game and make millions.
I find this appalling. It was the Toronto and Milwaukee game in the fourth quarter. I want to say between the 10 to 7-minute mark. I didn’t tape the game so I can’t give you an exact time.
We have people losing EVERYTHING and this asshole says playing a game is a sacrifice when they have generational wealth?
Fuck them all.
This isn’t my NBA anymore.
I’m just glad I got to watch some of the best playing against the best in the 80s and 90s when the game still had heart. They can never take those memories away from me.
Another reason for boycotting the nba:
Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse said Wednesday that the team met with members of the Boston Celtics to discuss the possibility of boycotting Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series.
Nurse told reporters that the idea of boycotting is “on the table”…
I thought there was something in the league’s bylaws about teams “colluding” to get a certain outcome in the game.
Both teams, the head coaches, the players AND PA should be severly FINED to this unsportsmanship conduct.
All the struggle that the NBA went to just to create the bubble playoffs and now they want to do that shit just for attention and activism. For me both teams should be disqualified if they boycott one single game. Bucks VS Heat is the conference final, problem solved.
The reason professional sports are so detached from reality is that if you are in any way connected with pro sports – whether you’re a viewer or a commentator or a player – you’re privileged enough to be worrying about something other than your children starving. The fact that you have the time to spend worrying about sports means that you have so few problems in your life that you’re trying to fill the vast empty spaces in your head with other problems to keep your mind from being bored. That’s one of the reasons I hate the world of sports and I don’t give a shit what any of them say or do.
I hope they do boycott. It will be just one more nail in the coffin of the NBA.
Go ahead. Let them boycott while Americans see their cities burning. It is not going to end the way they think it is. It will be the exact opposite.
Thanks for that information by the way. I hadn’t heard about that.
Huge swaths of the country are still out of work due to lockdowns and these pampered multimillionaires can’t just go out and play a fucking game. They kneel for the anthem, they got their fucking BLM painted onto the playing courts, they got to have their SJW phrases on their jerseys… Of course that was never going to be good enough.
They are destroying the NBA as a business. The NBA which has probably made more black people into millionaires than any other company or organization in the world.
It has begun!
The NBA has postponed all three of Wednesday’s games following the decision by the Milwaukee Bucks to boycott Game 5 of their first-round series against the Orlando Magic…
The Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder announced shortly after the Bucks’ decision that they would also be boycotting their game Wednesday, and the Lakers and Trail Blazers quickly followed suit ahead of their own Game 5 as players step away from the court in protest.
If the players want to actually make a difference, they have to;
Get out of the bubble.
Go march with your fellow thugs.
Use you OWN money to create the social programs you have been whining for.
Have the NBA cancel all future games since:
many players expressed feeling emotionally traumatized and that they were not in the right frame of mind to play basketball
The NBA/PA needs to sent the players to get the help they need… in a psycho ward.
Lol ffs… Just cancel the damn whole season/playoffs, fuck it. Bunch of entitled little bitches. They All stay quiet when innocent children are murdered… But when criminals are killed (some unfortunately, sure), they love to defend criminals, they’ll never learn with what happened with OJ, in fact some of them still think OJ didn’t do it. Fuck this, they’re calling for more violence. Millionaire players telling normal people that they’re victims.
The NBA players met about what to do next, and cry-baby lebron james left because we wanted an end to the playoffs altogether.
Now if the players want REAL CHANGE, there is a simple solution.
QUIT YOUR FUCKING JOB PLAYING BASKETBALL.
RUN FOR MAYOR, GOVERNOR, POLICE COMMISSIONERS, SENATORS, ETC.
AND MAKE REAL CHANGE!
ACTUALLY GO OUT AND FUCKING DO SOMETHING, YOU LAZY SHITS!
GO OUT AND STOP THE VIOLENCE IN YOUR INNER CITY COMMUNITIES!
STOP THE GANGS!
STOP THE DRUGS!
STOP THE BLACK ON BLACK VIOLENCE/DEATHS!
STOP THE HATRED!
ALL WE HAVE SEEN/HEARD SO FAR IS GAS COMING OUT OF ALL YOUR ASSES!
Predictably, the NBA players have decided to end their 1 game boycott lol. I guess they ended racism? These dudes are such tools
Racism is over party
It seems the players (except those from LA) voted to return to play.
And even before that, no one is shocked (but the players) why their TV ratings is down Down DOWN!
If I were the commisioner of basketball here’s what I would do:
I know some of that sounds harsh but if the NBA wants to get back on track then scorched earth is the only solution.
